Im glad that I was able to take advantage of the chances that I had. It wasnt a good start but we fought hard until the end and got the result that we needed against a very good team.The match brought together Marta and American playmaker Abby Wambach, two of the candidates for this years world player of the year award.It feels good to win a match like this, knowing that I was going against Wambach, Marta said.Brazil reached six points from two matches, while the United States remained on one. China, which routed Argentina 6-0 earlier Sunday, also has four points. Argentina has zero.The top two teams will meet for the title on Dec. 21. The other two nations will play for third place. The U.S. needs to beat Argentina by several goals in the last round on Wednesday and hope that China loses to Brazil.Brazil opened with a 4-0 win over Argentina and the U.S. drew China 1-1.The Americans took advantage of Brazils defensive mistakes to take the lead at the Mane Garrincha Stadium in the nations capital. After a corner by Rapinoe from the right side, the ball was headed toward Lloyd in front of the net and she turned for an easy goal in the sixth minute.Rapinoe then found the net with a shot from outside the penalty area in the 10th. She seemed set to make a cross but the ball went straight toward the net, with Brazil goalkeeper Luciana unable to make the stop.Marta put Brazil back in the game after one of her trademark runs through the middle of the defence, entering the area and firing a shot past U.S. goalkeeper Hope Solo.Martas second goal came after she cleared two defenders at the top of the area and fired a left-footed shot into the far corner. The winner was a low shot from outside the area that found the near corner. Solo was near the ball but couldnt make the stop as she dived to her left.The Americans had two great chances to equalize in second-half injury time. Lloyds free kick was saved by goalkeeper Luciana, and Christen Press shot from outside the area hit the far post in the final seconds. Chidobe Awuzie Womens Jersey .

In the build-up to the Euro 2016 Group Clash in Lens, Gareth Bale suggested none of Roy Hodgsons players would make it into the Welsh starting line up.The Real Madrid forward, who made the claim with a huge grin on his face, was backed up by Wales team-mate Aaron Ramsey, who also suggested the likes of Wayne Rooney, Joe Hart, Harry Kane and Dele Alli would not warrant a place in Chris Colemans side. We asked Winterburn and Melchiot to pick their combined XI on Sky Sports News HQ -but would there be any England players in the line up? Nigel Winterburn and Mario Melchiot picked just one Welshman in their combined England v Wales XI Former Arsenal and England left-back Winterburn and ex-Chelsea defender Melchiot picked 10 England players from Englands starting line up against Russia for their XI, with only Bale making the side from Wales team against Slovakia.Hart got the nod in goal with Englands back four of Kyle, Walker, Gary Cahill, Chris Smalling and Danny Rose in front of him.Englands goalscorer against Russia Eric Dier makes the cut and hes partnered in midfield by Tottenham team-mate Alli and Three Lions skipper Rooney. Bale is Wales sole representative in Winterburn and Melchiots commbined XI In attack Kane is partnered by Adam Lallana and Bale, who is Wales only member of the side.ddddddddddddWhen asked for his reasoning of the selections, Winterburn said: I dont need to defend myself [with the selections].Wales played tremendously well in the first game. They worked so well and played to a system which also was successful, but when you look at the players individually England should win.Former Netherlands international Melchiot insists the decision choosing between Rooney and Ramsey was a difficult one. Melchiot said one of the big choices was between Wales midfielder Aaron Ramsey and Englands Wayne Rooney I was looking at Rooney and Ramsey, he said. That would be one of the key decisions because Rooney had a good game in the first half [against Russia] but Ramsey is a player youd look to get in this team.All of the Wales players are either in the Premier League or want to get to the highest level in the Premier League as quickly as they can so its no surprise really to see on Bale picked in this team.Nigel Winterburn and Mario Melchiots combined England-Wales XI: Hart, Walker, Cahill, Smalling, Rose, Alli, Dier, Rooney, Lallana, Kane, Bale.Who would make YOUR combined England v Wales XI?
