Although El Tri (Mexico Women’s National Football Team) lost the first match of the Valais Women’s Cup by only one goal, Monica Ocampo was on the field for the whole game. Her Sky Blue FC teammate, Nayeli Rangel, came in after the first five minutes when defender, Paulina Solis suffered an injury.
The match was decided by a penalty in the 66th minute taken by L. Wang, of the Chinese team.
The Mexican team will play Brazil in the consolation match on Sept. 25 for either third or fourth place. Kickoff is at 8:30 a.m. ET – it will be broadcast live on ESPN3.
Three hours later, after that match, the final between China and New Zealand will be played.
