2021 Send-Off Series: USA vs Mexico Friendly Pre-Olympic
The United States Women’s Soccer program is on quite an impressive run, with five major cup wins over the last four years, highlighted by their 2019 World Cup title. Spanning the last 15 years in contests tracked by FBRef.com, they’ve had tremendous success internationally. There is but one blemish that stands out on their record, however, and that is their quarterfinal loss in the 2016 Rio Olympics. The PK loss to Sweden ended a streak of three consecutive gold medals at the Olympics, and five straight appearances in the final.
2021 has been a good year for the team, still undefeated with a 6-1-0 record, and another SheBelieves Cup in the trophy case. They’ve won four consecutive friendlies, going perfect through June, recording their lone drawback in April against Sweden. The two teams are going to be first-match opponents at the Olympic Games and drew 1-1 in that previous contest. As the team once again pursues gold, they look to build some momentum heading into the tournament.
Mexico is a great warm-up opponent for the American women. Their all-time history against their neighbors to the south falls heavily in their favor. The two teams have met three times, with the United States winning each time, owning a 12-0 scoring differential across all matches. They last faced each other in a 2019 friendly that the Americans won 3-0.
United States Women’s Team Roster:
D Abby Dahlkemper, D Tierna Davidson, D Crystal Dunn, M Julie Ertz, G Adrianna Franch, F Tobin Heath, M Lindsey Horan, M Rose Lavelle, F Carli Lloyd, M Kristie Mewis, M Samantha Mewis, F Alex Morgan, G Alyssa Naeher, D Kelley O’Hara, F Christen Press, F Megan Rapinoe.
This year’s American squad, led by familiar faces like Rose Lavelle and Megan Rapinoe, will aim to avenge a disappointing showing at the last Olympics
Defender Crystal Dunn, midfielder Julie Ertz and forwards Alex Morgan and Carli Lloyd are among the other U.S. mainstays who provide the team with firepower. A similar roster helped the U.S. capture the World Cup title in 2019.
