USWNT posts back-to-back dominant wins over South Korea

Things just keep on getting better for the U.S. Women's National Team. After winning the 'She Believes Cup' earlier this year, team USA is gearing up for a big summer, with the Summer Olympics right around the corner. 

Before the summer contests arrive, though, the red, white and blue hosted South Korea for a pair of games. So, how did things go? First, the U.S. posted a 4-0 win on June 1 and then they followed things up with a 3-0 victory a few days later. 

Sophia Smith scored a worldie in the latest USA win

In the 3-0 win, star playmaker Sophia Smith scored a world-class goal, one that people are still talking about. Smith continues to get better with each game, which is obviously amazing to see. 

Smith is also playing at an extremely high level, which is bad news for the rest of the teams making their way over to Paris for the Olympics. Smith is going to make a lot of noise in that tourney and if she's scoring goals like this, look out: 

Another major storyline from that win over South Korea was that 16-year-old sensation Lily Yohannes made her official debut and it didn't take her long to find the back of the net. Yohannes closed the scoring at 3-0 with a superb finish. 

The fact that Yohannes is already scoring goals at such a young age is wild to even think about, but it speaks to her massive potential at the international level. She's going to be a top talent. 

Next up for the USA will be a July 13 showdown against Mexico at Red Bull Arena in New Jersey. Signables will be on hand for that showdown and we can't wait for it! Then after the match with Mexico, a July 16 tilt with Costa Rica will close the prep for the Olympics out. 

The USA is hoping to bring home the gold from Paris and they're considered favorites to do so. Yes, the 2023 World Cup didn't go as planned for this team, but the Olympics could prove to be a totally different story.
