THE BIGGER PICTURE: Rodman now has three goals and two assists in six NWSL appearances this season. Her display this weekend could boost her hopes of securing a starting spot in the USWNT for the Women's World Cup this summer. She could replace the injured Mallory Swanson in the XI at the tournament.
WHAT NEXT FOR RODMAN? The USWNT international will look to help her side to victory in the NWSL Challenge Cup when they take on Orlando Pride on Thursday.
