USWNT vs Argentina: SheBelieves Cup

FT: USWNT 6-0 Argentina

The whistle sounds and it's a solid and convincing 6-0 rout for the USWNT ...Poor from Argentina as Vlatko Andonovski's side retain their SheBelives Cup title.

There's the 5th as Alex Morgan slots home 

Pereyra lets the ball slip but a player in sky and white is on hand to avert the danger

Ten minutes remain in Orlando as the USWNT manage the game. Despite no goals in this half, it has, once again been a one sided affair.

Despite their total domination, there have been few goal scoring chances created in the second 45' from the side in navy blue.

The USWNT are less than 20 minutes away from claiming their fourth SheBeleives Cup as Santanta is carded for high feet

67

Becky Sauerbrunn returns to the pitch after a collision of heads and appears okay to continue. The USWNT have very much taken their foot off the gas in this half and the flow of the game much changed with the series of changes. 

Ertz comes off for the US with Smith her replacement. Rapinoe off too and she is replaced by Howell

The 4th of the night

There was a look to the line from Rapinoe but the goal stands and the US are in the driving seat.

Gooooooooool. Rapinoe opens the scoring breaking the offside trap and slotting home ... fine finish

The US now starting to impose themselves on the game with Argentina pegged back inside their half. Imperative that the "Albiceleste" side keep the US at bay for as long as possible. 

Bright play from Argentina who nearly let Rodriguez in despite some furious pressing from the US

Final countdown to kick-off.... It's Argentina who get the action underway in Orlando....

Argentina have faced the US in three previous occasions and lost all three games bagging just one goal and shipping 22 in the process !

Pre game pix and the action is imminent.... 

Argentina are in their classic light blue and white stripes, white shorts tonight with the US in their dark navy kit .... Anthem time, first up Argentina....

...and tonight's opposition Argentina: 

With kick-off looming, a reminder of the USWNT starting XI: 

As was the case for previous match days, there will be a reduced number of fans in attendance at the Exploria Stadium due to the ongoing pandemic but the US Football Federation have invited 600 medical workers as special guests to tonight's match.

A win tonight would see the US claim their fourth She Believes title after wins in: 2016, 2028 & 2020. France (2017) and England (2019) are the other victors in the tournament's history. 

Argentina come into the game ranked No. 31 in the latest FIFA ranking with Carlos Borrello's side having lost both games, bagging just one goal and shipping five in the two matches.

A reminder of how the table looks ahead of this final game.

And what a night for Carli Lloyd with the 38-year-old set to earn her 299th international cap for the US. An incredible feat for the Sky Blue FC player.

Megan

Goal hero for the USWNT vs Canada Rose Lavelle starts as do Press and Rapinoe who bagged the goals against Brazil on Sunday. 

The pre-match pennant and Argentina dressing room as kick-off looms

The Argentina XI: 

The USWNT XI is confirmed: Carli Lloyd set to win international cap number 299

Argentina would need to create a major, major upset to deny the USWNT the trophy but as we know football can throw up the biggest shocks and surprises ..... an interesting 90 minutes of football awaits in Florida.

SBC

This is how the standings look with just one game to go.....

With Brazil beating Canada earlier (2-0), the South American nation now top the standings but a draw or win for Vlatko Andonovski's side would see the US retain their SheBelieves crown

The action from the Exploria Stadium in Orlando (Fl.) gets underway at 01:00 CET.

Hello and a very warm welcome to our live coverage of the 2021 SheBelieves Cup as the USWNT face Argentina in the final game of the competition.
