United States vs Vietnam match preview

The United States’ bid for an unprecedented three-peat kicks off in Auckland.

To date, there have been eight editions of the women’s World Cup, with the U.S. featuring in five finals, winning four of them, including each of the last two.

Four summers ago, USA retained the trophy by beating Netherlands 2-0 in Lyon, now aiming to become the first team, men’s, women’s or of any age category, to capture three successive World Cups.

The Stars and Stripes are the favourites before a ball is kicked, but there are concerns, mostly surrounding Vlatko Andonovski’s tactics.

Two summers ago, the U.S. were generally very underwhelming and in-cohesive at the Olympics, just about salvaging bronze by beating Australia, having been ousted by Canada in the semi-finals.

Then, last autumn, the United States were beaten in friendlies by England, Spain and Germany, thereby suffering three successive defeats for the first time since 1993.

So far this year, they’ve won eight out of eight friendlies, enjoying wins over New Zealand, Canada, Japan, Brazil, Republic of Ireland and then Wales in California earlier this month.

Nevertheless, any potential worries will only be realised in the knockout stages, with the U.S. certainly likely to pick up three points here.

Four summers ago, the USWNT recorded the biggest margin of victory in World Cup history, smashing Thailand 13-0, with fellow-southeast Asian outfit Vietnam seeking to avoid a similar scoreline.

The Golden Star Warriors are set to make their World Cup debut here, qualifying courtesy of wins over Tajikistan, Maldives, Chinese Taipei and Thailand, thereby benefiting from the expanded format.

In the build-up to this one, Mai Đức Chung’s team have lost 2-1 to Germany, 2-0 to New Zealand and then 9-0 against Spain in friendlies, with the latter obviously concerning.

Netherlands and Portugal complete Group E’s line-up, meaning Vietnam seem the most likely team, across all eight groups, to head home pointless.

So, most would expect USA to rack up a pretty emphatic margin of victory at Eden Park.

United States team news

The U.S. are without many key players due to injury for this tournament: Becky Sauerbrunn, Sam Mewis, Catarina Macario, Christen Press and Mallory Swanson to name but a few,

Without them, the vast majority of Vlatko Andonovski’s starting XI set in stone.

Midfielder Julie Ertz spent almost 20 months out of the game after the Olympics, before returning in April against Ireland, making seven appearances for Angel City FC subsequently.

So, she will need to be eased into this tournament, as will fellow-midfielder Rose Lavelle, who’s been carrying an injury recently.

If neither are good to go, Savannah DeMelo, who only made her debut against Wales earlier this month, could be in line for a start.

Goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher has not been in good form for the Chicago Red Stars this year, but she has Vlatko’s trust, so will keep her place, chosen over Casey Murphy.

In attack, Sophia Smith could be the star of this tournament, forming a formidable front three alongside Trinity Rodman and 2019 golden boot winner Alex Morgan.

Predicted XI (4-3-3): Naeher; Fox, Cook, Girma, Dunn; Ertz, Horan, Lavelle; Smith, Rodman, Morgan.

Vietnam teams news

Star striker Huỳnh Như is the only squad member who does not play in the domestic league, she’s with Länk Vilaverdense in Portugal, seeking to add to her 67 international goals.

Meanwhile, goalkeeper Trần Thị Kim Thanh could be in for a busy evening.

Predicted XI (5-3-2): Thị Kim Thanh; Thu Thảo, Thu Thương, Thị Kiều, Thị Thu, Thị Loan; Thanh Nhã, Tuyết Dung, Nguyễn Thị; Hải Yến, Huỳnh Như.
