China lost to the United States 2-1 in their opening game of the Algarve Cup Women's football tournament on Wednesday.

Midfielder Carli Lloyd scored the winner in the 38th minute when she shunned two sluggish tackles by the Chinese players before releasing a powerful right-footer.

The United States' veteran striker Kristine Lilly opened the scoring from the spot in the 18th minute after her striking partnet Abby Wambach was fouled by Chinese defender Li Jie inside the penalty area.

China equalised three minutes later through forward Han Duan who met a cross from teammate Liu Yali and headed the ball past the United States goalkeeper Hope Solo.

The United States, a physically and technically superior team, were on attack throughout the game forcing a lot of saves from Chinese keeper Zhang Yanru.

Wang Haiming, China's acting head coach accepted the loss with no complaints.

"The United States deserved to win the game as they are a better team," he said.

"But I am satisfied with my players' performance, they showed signs of maturing. They need to hone their skill to make up their physical disadvantage," he said.

Greg Ryan, head coach of the United States, also perceived China' s progress since they lost to his team 2-0 in a tournament in January.

"They are a better team than in January, they have made improvements in every aspects including attack, defence and physical play," he said.
