The USWNT plays Costa Rica in a send off game before flying to Brazil on July 22, kick off time at 9:00 PM ET, at Children’s Mercy Park in Kansas City, Kansas.
The United States is one of the powerhouses in the world of women’s soccer with 13-0-1 record in 2016. With plenty of improvements before the Rio Olympics, USA coac Jill Ellis wants to experiment on the 18-player roster that was named on July 12. Thus, this game provides a glimpse of what the team is capable of doing with the 18 players.
The United States toppled Costa Rica, 5-0, earlier this year on Feb. 10 in Frisco, Texas. USA soccer magnificently delivered goals after goals against the defense of Costa Rica. Alex Morgan scored two goals while Carli Lloyd, Crystal Dunn and Christen Press followed through with their own.
This is a tune up game for the Americans before competing in the Olympics in which they are in Group D with New Zealand, France and Colombia.
