Sixteen-year-old Lily Yohannes scored on her USA debut in the second of two international friendlies against South Korea.

USA beat South Korea 3-0 and Crystal Dunn scored a 13th-minute opener, turning in a Jenna Nighswonger cross at the far post for her first goal in 75 games.

Entering the last quarter of the match, Sophia Smith rounded the goalkeeper and netted from a tight angle, before Ajax’s Yohannes opened her account from Trinity Rodman’s pass.

The game was also a landmark for Rose Lavelle, who clocked up her 100th cap for Emma Hayes’ side.
