Spain vs USA, Monday’s match for the Women’s World Cup Round of 16, at the Stade Auguste-Delaune in Reims, France.
Spain and the United States are looking for a place for the quarter finals of the Women’s World Cup.
The Spanish team had a discreet World Cup, with a win, a draw and a defeat. They only scored in one of their matches. They finished 2nd in Group B
Marta Torrejón is the most experienced player, she has 90 games already played. Far from the more than 300 that Lilly played for the United States.
They are number 12 in the FIFA ranking, has less experience and participates in the World Championship stage, playing now only for the second time only.
It’s the big favorite. They were present in all editions of the Women’s World Cup that were disputed and won the previous one. They already have 3 World cups into their account.
It takes an impressive tournament with 18 goals scored and none against. The only time they were eliminated in a major competition before the semifinals was at the 2016 Olympics.
United States, has been the favorite national team. It is a global power in female soccer. Even with more power than the men’s team. The last time the two teams met was in a friendly in January that ended with the win of the Americans.
It must be a game with emotion and a good amount of goals that inclines the game to the United States against a less experienced and physically weaker Spain.
