Watch Megan Rapinoe put a defender on skates and open scoring against Japan

Very nice.

Megan Rapinoe has given the United States women’s national team the first half lead over Japan in the 2017 Tournament of Champions. What a goal it was too. After receiving a throughball from Christen Press, Rapinoe faked a shot to get the opposing defender to the ground, took it around her back to the right and finished clinically across her body. And1 Mixtape type stuff from the USWNT veteran, The Professor would be proud.
