USWNT vs Australia: times, TV and how to watch online
All the information you need on how and where to watch USA women take on Australia women in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games soccer tournament on Tuesday.
World champions USWNT will face Group G rivals Australia Women in Kashima on Tuesday, in a match where both teams will try to secure a ticket to the knockout stages of the soccer Olympic tournament. Both nations lost to leaders Sweden in the opening week.
After the four-time world champions lost to the Swedish roster and their 44-game unbeaten run came to an end, they managed to trash New Zealand 6-1 in Saitama.
World Cup star Rose Lavelle and Portland Thorns midfielder Lindsey Horan gave the US a 2-0 half-time lead, with the latter marking her 100th cap. The four goals remaining came after the break.
The USWNT, looking for a fifth gold in seven attempts, will try to add another win, this time against a dangerous Australian side, which beat regional rivals New Zealand.
USA dominate Australia, but the Matildas have done well lately
However, Sweden was superior and defeated the Matildas, who had the chance of advancing to the quarter-finals. Now they will have another opportunity against Vlatko Andonovski’s squad in what promises to be an exciting battle.
With 45 international goals in 95 caps, Sam Kerr is the leading scorer on the Matildas Olympic roster and needs just three goals to pass Lisa De Vanna to become the all-time leading scorer in Australia Women’s National Team history.
The USWNT and Australia have played 30 times overall, with 26 wins for the American team, although over their last three games, the USA has a record of 1-1-1 and all three matches have been decided by two goals or fewer.
