The U.S. finishes an unbeaten second, with Japan in third, and Brazil last.

Japan 0-3 England

Beth Mead scored for the second time in the tournament to cap off a 3-goal first half-hour for the Lionesses, as manager Phil Neville and England clinched its first SheBelieves Cup by beating Japan.

Karen Carney and Lucy Staniforth also scored in a match that flattered to deceive given relatively even numbers in passes, possession, and shots.

USWNT 1-0 Brazil

Tobin Heath’s 20th minute goal gave Jill Ellis’ women the lead, but would they keep it for the duration of a match this time around?

The USWNT blew three leads across its draws with Japan and England, but held on to the advantage against Brazil.

Heath, as we’ve said before, is a wizard.

Brazil finishes 0-3 in the tournament.
