2023 Women’s World Cup Draw: U.S. Will Face Netherlands, Vietnam and a Question Mark for Argentina
As part of this year’s Women’s World Cup, the United States will play three games in the round of 16. The team will face a group of top-seeded nations with a win securing a spot in the Quarterfinals. The group includes Brazil, Switzerland, France, and Norway. The team will also face other top-seeded, but unheralded nations in the quarterfinals. Among those, the U.S. will play the Netherlands and the Vietnam national team.
The Netherlands and Vietnam have played together on several occasions and are considered to be two of the top teams in their respective leagues. They may or may not be in the semifinals.
The U.S. will be looking to prove that they are a worthy World Cup contender, after finishing the 2013 season as the top team in the world. They defeated Argentina, and both Mexico and Canada in their matches.
The U.S. is one of four teams – England, Spain and Germany along with the Netherlands and Vietnam – that will play each other twice in the round of 16. The U.S. and Netherlands have played each other four times and the Netherlands and Germany twice. The Netherlands and Germany both won two of the four matches.
The U.S. and Netherlands will play the two times in the round of 16. The U.S. is in a tough spot, with losing the two matches to the Netherlands and Germany. The U.S. needs to win both of the matches to secure a winning record in the round of 16.
Argentina has a better goal differential than the Netherlands and Germany, even though they currently share the top spot of FIFA World Rankings.
The Netherlands sits fourth in FIFA World Rankings, Germany is eighth and Argentina sits 10th.
The World Cup has had success in the past when teams face each other four times. The U.S. has only won against Italy, Sweden, Colombia and Iran. Argentina has only won against England, Scotland, Mexico, Germany and Germany.
The U.S. needs to play a great opponent to beat the Netherlands in the group
