USA'S ROAD

TO THE FINAL

After the Americans booked passage to their 3rd straight FIFA Women's World Cup Final by beating England, we took a look at their memorable journey through France 2019...




13 - 0

It was a historic night for the Stars & Stripes against Thailand. Alex Morgan bagged 5 goals, and the team scored 10 in the second half alone - including 4 in a remarkable 6 minutes!

HIGHLIGHTS

3 - 0

Carli Lloyd scored twice and only a heroic performance from Chilean goalkeeper Christiane Endler kept the Group F match in Paris close.

HIGHLIGHTS

0 - 2

The Red, White and Blue completed a perfect group campaign after an early Lindsey Horan goal set them on course for a comfortable victory against eventual semi-finalists Sweden.

HIGHLIGHTS

1 - 2

This hard-fought Round of 16 match was settled by two Megan Rapinoe penalties - one early and one late - either side of a defensive mix-up.

HIGHLIGHTS

1 - 2

Le Grand Match lived up to the hype and was a quarter-final to remember. Rapinoe was again the 2-goal heroine, giving the USA a cushion against the scrappy hosts.

HIGHLIGHTS

1 - 2

A 3rd straight knockout classic as Christen Press and Alex Morgan headed home goals against a determined English side.


HIGHLIGHTS

Every day our players are put under pressure. It requires a lot of focus to survive. We’ve had less days of rest than probably anyone, and the hardest route to a final that a team has maybe ever taken. But we found a way, and I attribute that to mental strength.
