A world-class day at PGE Park
PORTLAND, Ore. - It was an electric Sunday at PGE Park as Portland played host to Group D play of the FIFA Women's World Cup 2003. An inspired Ghana team-led by two goals from Alberta Sackey-defeated Australia, 2-1, and both China and Russia advanced to quarterfinal play after a 1-0 victory by the Chinese team.
An impressive crowd of more than 19,000 strong invaded the stadium to further support the billing of Portland as "Soccer City USA."
