Virginia junior midfielder Morgan Brian (St. Simons Island, Ga.) scored her first goal for the United States Women's National Team during Tuesday's 7-0 victory over Mexico in a friendly at RFK Stadium. Brian, who had entered the game just two minutes earlier, scored the final goal of the night in the 72nd minute. 

Brian made her second appearance for the national team as she entered the game as a substitute in the 70th minute. Two minutes later, she collected a ball near the top of the box and fired a left footed shot that deflected off the Mexican defender guarding her and past the keeper for her first international goal. It was the seventh and final goal of the evening for the United States.
