Abby Dahlkemper helped the United States to a convincing Summer Series win over Jamaica on an historic night in Houston, Texas.

The World Champions secured their second victory of the tournament with a 4-0 rout, which saw former City star Carli Lloyd become the oldest goal scorer for her country at 38 years and 332 days.

Other former City stars played well as well. Fellow former Blue Rose Lavelle made the assist and Sam Mewis would also provide a contribution, setting up Alex Morgan in injury time for the fourth, after Lindsey Horan and Margaret Purce had extended the hosts’ lead.

Dahlkemper, who gained the most minutes played for her country in both 2019 and 2020, earned her 68th cap with her 61st start.

Her clean sheet marked the sixth in a row. The defender has completed the full 90 minutes in each, having featured in all bar one game in which she has been available throughout her senior international career.

The Summer Series are the United States’ final games before Head Coach Vlatko Andonovski names their 18-player Olympic squad.
