The USWNT faces Australia in the Group G final at the Olympic soccer tournament in Tokyo 2021. Here’s how to watch online.
After an embarrassing 3-0 loss to Sweden in their opening match of the 2021 Olympics, the US Women’s National Team bounced back with a 6-1 win against New Zealand. Now, they need a win or draw against Australia to guarantee a ticket to the knockout rounds. A defeat against the Australians, or the Matildas, as they are known in Australia, would leave the Americans in danger of being eliminated. The quarterfinals will be made up of the two best teams from each of the three groups, as well as the two best third-placed teams.
Despite their disappointing opener, the USWNT remains the most talented team in Tokyo and should be confident heading into Tuesday’s game. In 30 all-time games, Australia has beaten the United States just once (26-1-3). That was a 1-0 affair in June 2018 in Seattle. The three most recent matches between these two teams have been decided by two goals or less.
Australia has a lethal goal threat in captain Sam Kerr, who has been involved in every goal the Matildas have scored so far in Tokyo. However, Vlatko Andonovski has numerous weapons at his disposal, including Alex Morgan, Megan Rapinoe, Carli Lloyd, Tobin Heath, Christen Press, and Lynn Williams, all available up front. That’s enough to keep doormen awake at night.
Can Kerr’s individual brilliance keep up with a powerful American attack? You’ll have to tune in to find out.
