USWNT vs Netherlands Preview

The last time these two teams played each other, the United States women handed the Netherlands a 2-0 loss in the 2019 World Cup final. The story heading into this one, though, is one of conditioning. The USWNT had six days of training in the Netherlands before the match, and they have not played for over 260 days. The Americans’ last action was back in March when they won the SheBelieves Cup, taking down Japan 3-1.

“First, everyone is just really excited to have an international match,” U.S. Women’s National Team head coach Vlatko Andonovski said. “That it’s against the Netherlands makes it even better and more challenging. We had to get back on the field for a real game at some point, so it might as well be against one of the best teams in the world. We have a lot of work to do before the Olympics and facing a really talented Dutch team will give us a good look at where we are at the end of this very unusual year.”

The United States is still the No. 1 team in the country, while the Netherlands is currently ranked 4th, but the Americans are a bit more rusty heading into the match than their opponents. The Orange Lionesses have seen action more recently and more often, handling Estonia 7-0 on October 23 before notching another impressive win, a 6-0 beat down of Kosovo four days later.

“The chance to play against America in the Netherlands does not often arise in practice,” Dutch coach Sarina Wiegman said heading into the match. “So when we heard that they would like to organize a longer training camp in this region during this period, we naturally seized the opportunity with both hands. It is a great pity that the fans cannot be there now, but we consider ourselves very lucky that, despite the corona pandemic, we can ‘just’ play football.”

While the lineups for neither team have not yet been released, a few happenings have at least in part, determined who will and won’t be suiting up for the United States. Catarina Macario has yet to receive FIFA approval to play for the U.S., so she’ll miss the match. Alex Morgan should play but should see limited minutes, as Andonovski said before the game she’s not quite ready for a full 90 minutes yet. But then again, very few of his players are.

“We know that we’re nowhere close to our best from the tactical perspective, nowhere close to our best in our physical preparation. Not even technical and mental preparation. Obviously we’ve been off for so many months, first game after a while. Some players haven’t touched the ball for almost a year, some players haven’t touched the ball for six months. We have literally only a few players that are 90 minutes ready,” the American coach said.

Christen Press, Tobin Heath, Emily Sonnett, Sam Mewis, and Rose Lavelle will all likely see the field in this one, although Lavelle has been limited recently.
