Sixteen-year-old Lily Yohannes scored 10 minutes into her international debut on Tuesday at Allianz Field in the United States women’s national team’s 3-0 victory over South Korea to become the third-youngest scorer in program history.

“It’s a dream come true, really,” said Yohannes, who came in as a substitute in the 72nd minute. “I played this scenario out in my head like how many times before this game? Just having the idea of coming on and scoring.”

Yohannes is the eighth-youngest player to debut for the USWNT and the youngest to take the field for the team since March 2021.

“She doesn’t look like a 16-year-old,” coach Emma Hayes said after the match. “She knows what I think about her. I’ve really pushed and wanted her in this squad.”

Yohannes scored in the 82nd minute, after forward Trinity Rodman collected a short corner kick and dribbled past her defender to slide a ball to Yohannes for the finish from 10 yards out. The teenager ran to the corner to celebrate and was quickly surrounded by exuberant teammates.

“That was so special,” Yohannes said. “I think that made it just that much more special. I just took off to the corner, and I saw all of them running at me. Just super, super special and so grateful. Such a great team.”
