The U.S. women's national team has put a difficult 2021 behind it in preparation for the World Cup in Australia and New Zealand next summer, where it will look to defend its title.

In the first major tournament under Vlatko Andonovski, the U.S. underwhelmed, losing to Canada for the first time in 20 years in the semi-finals of the women's soccer tournament at the Olympic Games.

Ultimately, the players did leave Japan with medals around their necks, beating Australia in the bronze medal match, but improvements have been expected.

What fixtures has the USWNT had in 2022?

The first fixtures for the USWNT this year came in the SheBelieves Cup in February. Iceland, New Zealand and the Czech Republic were the three opponents for the U.S. this year, ranked 16th, 22nd and 24th in the world respectively.

The tournament was not as straight-forward for the USWNT as some might have imagine, starting with a goalless draw against the Czech Republic, but Andonovski's side would go on to lift the trophy.

The USWNT then played two friendlies with Uzbekistan in April, a nation ranked 45th in the world that failed to reach the final round of Women's World Cup qualifying in Asia, and a pair against Colombia in June in preparation for the CONCACAF Women's Championship in Mexico.

They went on to win that tournament, taking down Canada in the finale while not conceding a goal in the whole tournament. They also secured their place at the World Cup with their performances in the competition, as well as at the 2024 Olympic Games.

What fixtures does the USWNT have in 2022?

The USWNT has three confirmed friendlies before the end of the year, with more to come. The first of those announced come in the form of a double-header against Nigeria, who reached the semi-finals of the Women's Africa Cup of Nations in Morocco in the summer.

In October, the team will then fly to England to take on the new European champions. The game will take place at Wembley Stadium, where the Lionesses defeated Germany in extra time in August in front of a record crowd to win the Women's Euros.

What other games could the U.S. play?

There is a further international break in November, as well as room for another October fixture, in which U.S. Soccer will organize friendlies to help the national team be in the best possible shape for the World Cup.

With UEFA's qualification process for that tournament to end in September, the variety and number options for opposition in those October and November windows will not be as limited as in late 2021, too.
