USA's Victory Tour to celebrate their 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup™ title continued in style with an 8-0 victory against Haiti in Birmingham.

Sunday's rout followed Thursday's 5-0 win against the same Haitian side, and once again Carli Lloyd led the American's charge with a first-half hat-trick - not too dissimilar from the No10's performance in the Women's World Cup Final at BC Place. Julie Johnston opened the scoring for the Stars and Stripes, the centre-back finding the net with less than a minute on the clock.

Crystal Dunn, the NWSL's top scorer and the only player not to make the Canada 2015 squad, found the scoresheet just as she did three days ago. Amy Rodriguez made it 6-0 just after the restart, Alex Morgan flicked in a header from close range and Heather O'Reilly completed the scoring in the final minutes.

USA will face a tougher test in their next two matches of their World Cup celebration tour when they face Brazil in Seattle and Orlando towards the end of October.
