Team news & squads

USWNT team news

The USWNT will have to deal with the expectation of being the favorites to lift the title. Interim boss Twila Kilgore has handed out call-ups to several exciting youngsters such as Jaedyn Shaw, Olivia Moultrie, Mia Fishel, and Jenna Nighswonger, all of whom will be keen to impress ahead of the Olympics.

Kilgore experimented with a 3-4-3 lineup against China in December, but they could revert to the traditional 4-3-3 here. Alana Cook was replaced on the roster by the experienced Becky Sauerbrunn, while star striker Alex Morgan has not been called up for this tournament, as Kilgore looks to younger attacking options for the future.

USWNT predicted XI: Naeher; Fox, Nighswonger, Girma, Dunn; Horan, Sonnett, Lavelle; Rodman, Smith, Fishel

Goalkeepers:Campbell, Murphy, Naeher
Defenders:Dahlkemper, Dunn, Davidson, Fox, Girma, Krueger, Nighswonger, Sauerbrunn
Midfielders:Albert, Coffey, Horan, Lavelle, Moultrie, Sonnett
