Rodman shines in new-look USA win over China

Trinity Rodman starred as the new-look United States women's team enjoyed a 3-0 friendly win over China in Fort Lauderdale on Saturday.

Rodman had a goal and an assist while Sophia Smith and Lindsey Horan were also on target as the USA enjoyed a positive performance in their first game since the appointment of Englishwoman Emma Hayes as the team's new coach.

Interim coach Twila Kilgore was in charge of the game with Hayes, who is committed to her club Chelsea until the end of the English Women's Super League season in May.

Hayes had been involved in the selection of the roster for the game which saw 10 players from August's ill-fated World Cup squad, including star Alex Morgan, not called up.

The youthful side featured two debutants in the second-half with Olivia Moultrie and Jenna Nighswonger both making their debuts off the bench.

The USA dominated from the outset, going ahead in the eighth minute when Rodman burst down the left and her low cross was turned in by Smith.
