VIDEO - USWNT Win Four Nations Tournament (All Games' Highlights)

Champions, again.
The United States Women's Nation Team took full honors at the Four Nations Tournament with a 2-0 defeat of the hosts in Chongquing, China. The USWNT suffered an early set up, losing 2-1 to Sweden, but then successive wins against Canada and China sealed the tournament win. It was their seventh title in eight trips to the tournament.

Coach Pia Sundhage managed to use all 21 players brought for the tournament, including first caps for Meghan Klingenberg and Sydney Leroux (who we interviewed for "The Shin Guardian"). This was even without Lady Nats stars, forward Abby Wambach (heel injury) and goalkeeper Hope Solo (shoulder surgery).

Some promising stuff from the young squad, where goalkeeper Nicole Barnhart was named the tournament's best, as the USWNT shook off the tough qualifying cycle.

The USWNT is off for a week until training camp in early February to prepare for March's Algarve Cup in Portugal.
