It’s the rematch! Remember when USA crushed Japan in the 2015 Women’s World Cup final 5-2 and we all went crazy for the USWNT? Well, it’s happening all over again as the two teams meet in Commerce City, Colorado on June 2 at 9pm EST in this soccer game. Click to watch every minute with us here!
Last summer the world went crazy for our beloved USWNT after they crushed Japan 5-2 to lift the 2015 World Cup. The girls came back heroes, and since then they’re yet to taste defeat. They’ve been simply crushing all those their wake as they’ve continued to dominate the sport. But now, for the first time since the World Cup, the two nations lock horns for what should be another intriguing encounter. Click down for the live stream!
The girls are currently getting their prep in order for the Olympics in Rio this August, as they aim to follow-up their World Cup win with a gold medal. That would be the most incredible achievement should it happen, but these girls won’t be counting their chickens just yet.
Interestingly, the USA and Japan have led the field in women’s soccer for years. You wouldn’t believe it, but they’ve met each other in finals of the 2011 World Cup, the 2012 Olympics and the most recent 2015 World Cup. The only loss USA recorded was in a heartbreaking 2011 penalty shootout loss, so we’re on good stead!
Of course, what’s lucky for the US is that Japan won’t be competing in Rio, after shockingly failing to qualify through the tricky Asia qualifying tournament back in March. It should make the US clear favorites come Rio time, and certainly in this game as well!
