USA Women continues title hunt

USA Women is looking to add to their wins for a better chance in the title with a win against Netherlands Women. These two teams had a strong start in the contest, as they both won their openers, which works for their advantage. USA had a comfortable 3-0 win against Vietnam, while the Netherlands took a narrow 1-0 win against Portugal. Following their opener wins, USA and Netherlands are next to each other in the group standings. However, USA is at the top while the Netherlands is at the second because of their goal difference. Moreover, USA and Netherlands are not new with each other as they already played 10 matches competitively. It was USA who dominates those matches, as they have won eight, as opposed to Netherland‘s one win. The 11th meeting between these two teams will be on July 27, 2023, at 9:00 AM (GMT+8).

It seems like USA is on a roll in the contest, as they had a dominating 3-0 win against Vietnam, proving how they bagged the title in 2019. It was Sophia Smith and Lindsey Horan who gave victory for USA on their opening match. Their win in the opener is already their 10th win across all competitions, and their fourth, where they did not concede any goal. Additionally, it seems like they are confident to play in this game, considering their record. When going against a European opponent in the World Cup, they were able to win 18 times, and lost just thrice. USA once proved why they are the most successful team in the contest, as they won four times in the contest. As they have the advantage against their opponents, they are looking to make use of that advantage.

Following their win in their previous game, USA is expected to parade the same lineup in this match. However, Horan needs to be careful un this match, as she already had a yellow card during their match against Vietnam.

Netherlands on the other hand is from a 1-0 win against Portugal on their last meeting, all thanks to their early goal. It was Stefanie van der Gragt’s goal during the 13th minute that gave Netherlands the win on that match. That win is already their third straight win across all contests, which means they have a good momentum as they go against the defending champions. Additionally, in their last five matches across all contests, they were able to score at least four goals in three of those. Coming into this game, the Netherlands are looking to avenge from their defeat against USA in the World Cup final in 2019. They were that close for a title, but they were defeated by USA. Considering that they have a good momentum coming into this game, a win here is not impossible for the Netherlands.

Expect an unchanged lineup for this match, as Netherlands are looking for consistency and familiarity to win this important game.
