In a toughly contested battle between the United States women’s national team and Spain in the SheBelieves Cup on Sunday, Julie Ertz called game.

With the game tied in the final moments of the match, the U.S. was awarded a free kick and capitalized.

On the set piece, forward Christen Press serviced a perfect cross to the center of the goal box, where Ertz was making a run surrounded by defenders. The midfielder made contact with her head, and though goalie Sandra Paños managed to get a hand on it, the go-ahead goal found the back of the net.
