Amy Rodriguez scores lone goal against Brazil

The US Women's Soccer team played a friendly against Brazil at the lyrically named Dick's Sporting Goods Park just outside Denver. Amy Rodriguez scored the only goal of the game in the 71st minute to get the US to their 10th win in a row and 6th shut-out of an opponent. The team is 20-0-1 in 2008 in their run-up to this summer's Olympics.

Rodriguez is one of two collegiate players selected for the Olympic team, and has scored 5 goals so far in the 17 national side games she's played in this year. She seems to be fitting in well with her fellow players, who in turn are adapting well to the system introduced by coach Pia Sundhage, and you've got to like their chances of going deep in Olympic competition.

Congratulations Amy, and Fight On to Beijing!
