USWNT maintains two-year unbeaten streak ahead of Games
The United States women’s national team defeated Mexico 4-0 in back-to-back games in their final warm-ups prior to the start of the Olympic Games.
The United States women’s national team are the favourites to win the gold medal at the Tokyo Olympic Games this summer. On Monday, the USWNT played their last warm-up game against Mexico and won 4-0 at Rentschler Field. Lindsey Horan (6’), Carli Lloyd (11’), Reyna Reyes (OG 37’) and Tobin Heath (39’) gave the United States the victory prior to traveling to Tokyo ahead of the start of the Olympic tournament.
“I feel good,” USWNT boss Vlatko Andonovski said. “Very excited about the trip. Obviously I feel like we’re prepared. I feel like we are moving in the right direction and slowly but surely fulfilling all the tasks necessary to be fully prepared for the Olympics.”
USWNT have not lost in almost two years
With a second consecutive 4-0 victory against Mexico the USWNT extended their unbeaten streak to 44 games (40 wins and four draws). This is the second-longest unbeaten streak in the team's history and they have now beaten the Mexico women's national team 15 times in a row, with an overall record of 39W-1D-1L.
Team USA has four gold medals under their belt and they are in the running to become the first team to follow a World Cup title with an Olympic gold medal. The United States women’s national team is in Group G alongside Sweden, Australia and New Zealand.
