The U.S. women's national soccer team defeated Argentina 7-0 in front of 14,608 fans Sunday at Spartan Stadium in San Jose, CA. This came two days after the U.S. team first beat Argentina Friday night in front of a sell- out crowd of over 10,000 at Fullerton, CA. The 14,608 in San Jose is the second-largest non-Olympic crowd in U.S. women's national team history, and the weekend total of 24,707 was a record high for the team (U.S. Soccer).
