Just days after putting on a show vs. Russia, Boston Breakers rookie Rose Lavelle was back at it again, this time scoring her first international goal in the United States’ 5-1 win over Russia. Lavelle collected a nice pass from UCLA’s Mallory Pugh and slotted it past Russian GK Iuliia Grichenko with her left foot in the 37th minute.

The goal comes in Lavelle’s fourth cap, and three days after earning her first assist.

It was a day of firsts for NWSL rookies as Dash goalkeeper Jane Campbell earned her first cap with the United States women’s national team, subbing in for Ashlyn Harris in the 74th minute. She played the final 16 minutes of the match on her NWSL home field, BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston.

Dash midfielder Carli Lloyd, currently playing for Manchester City in England but expected to rejoin the team later this summer, tallied her 97th international goal for the United States, hammering home a penalty kick in the 40th minute.

Chelsea’s Crystal Dunn added two more goals for the United States with Portland defender Meghan Klingenberg earning the assist on Dunn’s first in her second match since returning from a back injury.

The United States will play their next games on June 8 in Sweden and June 11 in Norway.
