It was also the first time since 2001 that the Americans have conceded at least two goals in three straight games.
In addition, it was the first home loss in more than five years, a 71-game home streak snapped.
Hero of the match in the international match in Fort Lauderdale in Florida was Paula Krumbiegel who scored the winning goal in the 89th minute.
The USA is in the midst of a generational change, and national team captain Vlatko Andonovski, despite the loss, still saw flashes of light.
“We got to see what we wanted to see – precision in the final third, the interaction between the three strikers and between attack and midfield,” he says.
The USA won the World Cup in both 2015 and 2019, but it was “only” bronze in the Olympics in Tokyo 2021. This fall, the USA has lost to Spain and England and now also to Germany. Despite recent setbacks, the USA is number one in the world rankings, ahead of Sweden and Germany.
