World Cup time is an amazing time for millions of soccer fans around the globe. In the United States, the Women’s World Cup brings something that the Men’s World Cup hasn’t, a chance to win. Historically the United States women have been dominant even when they haven’t won it all. The other countries around the world know that the United States will always be one of the hardest teams to play and that they will always be in contention to win the championship.
The group stage of the World Cup features the US Women matched up with Thailand, Chile, and Sweden and they will have their first math today, June 11th, against Thailand. The US is expected to exit as the top team in this group, but as anyone who watches sports knows, nothing is guaranteed. Having said that, the hopes of the Americans is high, and their fellow countrymen are excited for their potential.
