USA vs Chile : The United States will effectively secure their spot in the next round of the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup if they can beat Chile at the Parc des Princes in their second Group F outing on Sunday.
Jill Ellis’ side opened the competition with a record 13-0 hammering of Thailand and look all but certain to advance after flexing against one of the competition’s underdogs.
The U.S. meets Chile in the Americans’ second game of Women’s World Cup 2019 on Sunday (noon ET, FOX, Telemundo), and while the Chileans are ranked by FIFA below Thailand, don’t expect another 13-0 thrashing in this one. Chile played Sweden tough in a 2-0 loss on Tuesday, and La Roja’s Christiane Endler, who plays for PSG, is one of the better goalkeepers in the tournament.
That said, few are expecting the U.S. to have much trouble against Chile, which the Yanks beat 4-0 and 3-0 in two friendlies last fall.
Five days are a historic 13-0 win over Thailand in their World Cup opener, the United State Women’s National Team is back in action on Sunday against Chile.
Forward Alex Morgan scored five goals in the thrashing of Thailand and will look to continue her stellar play against Chile.
After their match against Chile, Team USA will complete Group F play against Sweden on Thursday.
