DORTMUND Alex Morgan Jersey , Germany (AP) — Jadon Sancho starred as Borussia Dortmund beat Bayern Munich 2-0 in the season-opening German Supercup on Saturday.Sancho scored one goal and brilliantly set up Paco Alcacer for the other as Dortmund secured a morale-boosting victory over its old rival and delivered a statement of intent for the season ahead.“We know that we still have a tall task ahead of us for the championship,” Dortmund team official Sebastian Kehl said.Dortmund is bidding to end Bayern’s unprecedented seven-year reign as German champion and significantly boosted its squad with summer signings though only Nico Schulz was able to start as injuries took their toll.Instead it was left to Sancho to carry on where he left off last season as the 19-year-old England forward produced another sparkling performance.“All the defenders, even Bayern’s defenders – when he has the ball at his feet, they’re a little bit afraid,” Dortmund midfielder Axel Witsel said. “Jadon has a lot quality. He’s really fast, technically he’s very good. He can score, make passes, so he’s really complete.”The game, a curtain-raiser for the coming season, was sold out Mallory Pugh Jersey , watched by more than 81,000 fans at the Westfalenstadion.They were barely given time to settle as the game began with an outstanding save from Bayern captain Manuel Neuer to deny Dortmund counterpart Marco Reus.The next big chance also fell to Dortmund. Neuer rushed out of goal and Alcacer tried scooping the ball over him toward the unguarded net. Fans stood up and watched as the ball went wide.Robert Lewandowski replied with Bayern’s first effort, which was deflected away, before Neuer saved again to deny Raphael Guerreiro.Bayern improved through the half with Niko Kovac’s side looking assured on the ball.“We didn’t take our chances,” Kovac complained.Alcacer broke the deadlock after the break, all thanks to Sancho. He eluded three Bayern defenders, then played the ball through Niklas Süle’s legs for Alcacer to sweep it inside the right post.Bayern sought a response and was only denied through desperate defending with Marwin Hitz saving and Manuel Akanji blocking on the line before the ball was cleared away.Sancho then struck on a counterattack in the 69th after Guerreiro played the ball over the Bayern defense. The young forward stayed calm before slotting the ball through Neuer’s legs.Of all Dortmund’s summer signings, only Schulz could play. Mats Hummels was denied a quick reunion with his former Bayern teammates due to muscular problems, Julian Brandt was out with a groin problem, Thorgan Hazard with an ankle injury and Mateu Morey with a shoulder injury. Goalkeeper Roman Bürki was also out. PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Carli Lloyd had a goal and an assist in front of her hometown fans , and the U.S. women’s national team continued its post-World Cup victory tour with a 4-0 win over Portugal in front of a record crowd on Thursday night.The announced attendance of 49,504 at Lincoln Financial Field was the largest ever for a stand-alone friendly game for the U.S. women, breaking the previous mark of 44,028 set in Pittsburgh during the team’s 2015 victory tour.Tobin Heath, Morgan Brian and Allie Long also scored for the U.S., which has won 15 consecutive matches for the first time since 1996. Christen Press had two assists.“It’s fun to be a part of this, celebrating,” coach Jill Ellis said. “Someone asked me out there, ‘Oh, you seem so happy?’ I’m like Becky Sauerbrunn Jersey , ‘Well, we won a World Cup and it’s a victory tour.’ It’s cued up.”The five-city domestic tour to celebrate the Americans’ fourth World Cup title, which they won in France this summer, began in Los Angeles on Aug. 3 with a 3-0 win over Ireland. It will continue with stops in St. Paul, Minnesota (Sept. 3), Charlotte (Oct. 3), and Chicago (Oct. 6).Lloyd, a Philadelphia-area native who made national news when she kicked a 55-yard field goal at Philadelphia Eagles training camp last week, led the team out of the tunnel holding the World Cup trophy.The two-time FIFA player of the year scored early in the second half to make it 3-0, before celebrating by flapping her arms like an eagle. Her cross in the 82nd minute set up Long’s goal and put a finishing touch on the rout.“I don’t play for goals. I just want to help the team and continue to improve as a player Crystal Dunn Jersey ,” Lloyd said. “But to have been able to score in front of a home crowd, in the Eagles’ stadium, it’s pretty awesome.”As for the possibility of kicking field goals in the NFL, which has been gaining steam over the past week, Lloyd said that her first priority is continuing her national team career and making the 2020 Olympic squad. After that, she said she is eager about the opportunity to possibly become the first female NFL player.“Nothing rattles me,” the 37-year-old said. “I’ve got ice through my veins. You can say what you want; I’ll come back and make you look stupid.”The U.S. pounced on Portugal early, with Heath finishing a cross from Press in the fourth minute. Julie Ertz, whose husband Zach Ertz plays in the same stadium as a tight end for the Eagles, set the play up with a good ball to Press.Brian netted her first goal since 2016 Kelley O'Hara Jersey , off Press’ corner kick in the 18th minute.Goalkeeper Adrianna Franch, making her second international appearance, needed only to make one nice save against overmatched Portugal, FIFA’s 30th-ranked side.“In terms of just our popularity, I think this is a team that has not just captured his nation but has captured the world,” said Ellis, who will step down following the victory tour after five-plus years in charge. “And that’s basically what you’re getting out there — you’re feeling the love from the fans.”U.S. stars Alex Morgan and Megan Rapinoe did not play because of injury. Neither did Rose Lavelle, who scored the final goal of the World Cup final, a 2-0 victory over the Netherlands on July 7.
