USWNT coach Jill Ellis explains why Alex Morgan, Megan Rapinoe and other stars didn't play vs. Chile

It's was a different look for the United States women's national team on Sunday in the squad's 3-0 win over Chile that booked a spot in the round of 16. Jill Ellis used just four starters from Tuesday's lineup, with leading goal scorer Alex Morgan on the bench in favor of veteran Carli Lloyd. Megan Rapinoe and Tobin Heath also spent the game on the bench with Christine Press and Mallory Pugh in their place, while Becky Sauerbrunn returned after missing the first game due to injury, shifting Julie Ertz back into the midfield. Lloyd scored two goals for the U.S. in the game while Ertz added one, with the USWNT staying atop Group F. Emily Sonnett, Allie Long and Jessica McDonald were the three subs Ellis used off the bench, so after 180 minutes of play, the U.S. has used all 20 fields (non-goalkeeper) players on its roster. After the match, Ellis talked about spreading the minutes around.
