BEIJING -- A goal by Carli Lloyd in the 27th minute was all the US women's soccer team needed to post its first win of the Olympic Games, claiming a 1-0 victory over Japan at Qinhuangdao Olympic Sports Center Stadium early this morning.

With the win, the US earns three points and for the moment joins Norway at the top of the Group G table. Norway plays New Zealand beginning at 7:45 a.m. today. The American side will close out group play against New Zealand at 7:45 a.m. on Tuesday at Shenyang's Olympic Stadium. The top two teams in each of the three groups and the top two third-place teams advance to the quarterfinals.
