Mia Fishel and Jaedyn Shaw both scored their first international goals to power the U.S. women’s national team to a 3-0 win Sunday over Colombia.

Three days after a tepid performance in a 0-0 draw against Colombia, fresh faces brought the USWNT to life. In just their second appearances for the senior national team, Fishel opened the scoring with a header in the 56th minute, and Shaw iced the victory in the 83rd.

Shaw’s goal came off an assist from fellow 18-year-old phenom Alyssa Thompson, a display of the growing youth movement within the U.S. ranks. At 18 years and 343 days, Shaw became the youngest player to score for the USWNT since Mallory Swanson’s goal against Colombia at the 2016 Summer Olympics at 18 years and 102 days of age.

Shaw and Fishel both entered the game at halftime as substitutes for Sophia Smith and Alex Morgan, while Thompson relieved Trinity Rodman in the 72nd minute. The trio of young forwards brought energy to the pitch at San Diego’s Snapdragon Stadium — and a scoring touch, which the USWNT lacked in Thursday’s scoreless draw.
