Chiba, Japan (My Sportsbook) - In a rematch of their historic quarterfinal clash of the 2011 Women's World Cup, Brazil and the United States squared off in the final match of the Kirin Challenge Cup on Tuesday with the Americans taking a 3-0 win.

The United States made history last year when Abby Wambach produced the latest goal ever scored in a World Cup, helping the Americans come out on top after penalty kicks.

Tuesday's win was much more convincing as three goals from set pieces gave the United States their biggest win over Brazil since 2004.

Carli Lloyd handed the Americans the lead in the 18th minute before Shannon Boxx doubled it five minutes later. Amy Rodriguez wrapped up the affair seven minutes from time with her 24th international goal.

With a record of 10-1-1 on the year, the Americans will go for their 11th win when they welcome China to PPL Park in Chester, Pa. on May 27.
