The United States Women’s National Team look to get back on track today when they take on New Zealand in their second match at the 2020 Olympics. Both teams are in desperate need of a win, but the USWNT are the ones who currently sit in last place in Group G as a result of their 3-0 opening day loss to Sweden.
The USWNT last faced the Ferns back in May 2019, a World Cup send-off match where the Americans pummeled New Zealand by a 5-0 score. It won’t be as easy this time around, as the pressure of attempting to get out of the group mounts. The USWNT hold a 15-1-1 all-time advantage over New Zealand, but New Zealand has to have the confidence that they can outlast the world’s #1 team and get a result. Who will control the pace of the match and who will ultimately emerge victorious?

The U.S. women’s national team will look to bounce back from a disastrous opening match at Tokyo 2020, as they face New Zealand in a Group G match in Saitama.
The pre-tournament favourites were shocked by Sweden , the nation who dumped them out of the running five years ago in Brazil, in the first game of their Olympic campaign.
