GOALLLL! That’s what Team USA’s hoping to hear on Aug. 9. The women’s US soccer team will be taking on Colombia at the Rio Olympics, and they’re hoping to get one step closer to taking home the gold! Hope Solo, Carli Lloyd, Alex Morgan and more amazing players are going to take the field at 6pm EST/3pm PST, and we have the live stream so you catch every second! WATCH THE US VS COLOMBIA WOMEN’S SOCCER GAME RIGHT HERE.
America is totally expected to win the Aug. 9 match-up, which is their third and final game of group play. They’ve been undefeated so far, and if they take home the gold they will become the first women’s team ever to take the World Cup and Olympic gold back-to-back. Go team!
This will be the girls’ second game in this year’s Olympics. First, they went head-to-head with New Zealand winning 2-0. Then France took a beating from USA on Aug. 6, when after quite the battle they beat them out 1-0! Hopefully they’ll carry on the winning stream for the next two weeks so that they can bring the gold home to America!
These ladies are not stranger to victory. The girls took home the World Cup in 2015, proving that they are the best women’s soccer team in the world! While they are still dominant so far, some things have changed since 2015. Most importantly, their fearless leader Abby Wambach retired after the season, leaving Carli to lead the team to victory. We’re sure the stellar player will do her proud!
