Sam Kerr’s National Women’s Soccer League title hopes were dashed as her Chicago Red Stars lost this morning’s final 4-0 to the North Carolina Courage.

Kerr, who was named NWSL MVP over the weekend, played a full game in the defeat.

The Matildas skipper was starved of service and unable to make an impact on the match.

Red Stars coach Rory Dames said: “I don’t know if they prevented Sam from being dangerous as much as we didn’t give her what she needed to be dangerous.”

In the German Frauen Bundesliga, Emily Gielnik started but was replaced at the break as Bayern Munich won 3-0 at USV Jena.

In the English Women’s Super League, Jacynta Galabadaarachchi started and played an hour as West Ham lost 3-1 to Chelsea.

In the Spanish Feminina Division, Alex Chidiac was absent injured again as Atletico Madrid won 2-0 over Athletic Bilbao.
