The No. 2-ranked Yanks needed a bit of Hope … Solo. The 33-year-old goalkeeper made two giant saves to keep opening-game butterflies and an early onslaught by the 10th-ranked Aussies in check. An hour into the game, forward Christen Press finally broke a long-running 1-1 deadlock, and midfielder Megan Rapinoe scored her second goal to seal the deal. A draw between Nigeria and Sweden puts the U.S. at the top of the Group of Death, so despite the jittery opener, hope remains.
