U.S. booters defeat England
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. Cindy Parlow did everything in a hurry Saturday, scoring four goals in a 13-minute span before rushing off to Atlanta for a WUSA game.
Parlow, who hadn't scored all season, switched from forward to midfielder and led the U.S. women's soccer team past England 6-0 in an exhibition match. It was the second straight time and eighth overall a player has scored four goals in a game for the U.S. team, which is 18-0-2 in its last 20 home games.
''We don't care who scores, how the ball gets in the back of the net, as long as we're on top at the end of the game,'' Parlow said.
Shannon MacMillan also scored four times in a 6-1 victory over Canada last month.
Parlow now has 61 career goals, becoming the fifth U.S. national team member to reach 60. She and three of her U.S. teammates left for Atlanta shortly after the match for a WUSA game between Parlow's Beat and Brandi Chastain's San Jose CyberRays.
