WNT Plays Its Own Euros

Since September 2016, the U.S. Women’s National Team has played 10 different opponents -- nine teams from Europe plus Thailand. 

The USA’s list of European opponents since last fall includes the Netherlands, two sets of matches each against Switzerland and Romania, tough tests against England, France and Germany at the 2017 SheBelieves Cup and another double-dip against Russia in April. Most recently of course, there were the two big wins against Sweden in Gothenburg on June 8, and against Norway in Sandefjord on June 11. 

So, besides belonging to the same Confederation, what do eight of these nine European countries have in common? They make up half of the field for the 2017 UEFA Women’s EURO tournament taking place this July in the Netherlands. Romania nearly made it into the last 16 as well but fell to Portugal in the playoff for the final spot.


WNT vs. Netherlands, this year's EURO hosts.

The UEFA Women’s EURO is the most prestigious competition for women’s international soccer in Europe and, after the Women’s World Cup and the Olympic Games, the biggest and most competitive women’s international tournament in the world.

And facing the best is precisely what U.S. WNT head coach Jill Ellis committed to do coming out of the recent Olympic cycle.

“I said it last year, we want our schedule to be aggressive,” Ellis told ussoccer.com. “We’re always trying to play top-10 teams and elite teams. It’s a priority and our Federation knows it’s a priority for our team because it’s in those games where we will see growth. The games against European teams are critical.

With the next Women’s World Cup in France, surely the European nations – especially France and Germany – will be favorites to lift the trophy in Lyon. By then, the USA clearly will have cut its teeth on European competition.

Including the games against Sweden and Norway, the U.S. has now played exactly half of the EURO field in less than a year, a rarity for most countries both in terms of the high level of opposition and the short amount of time in which the games have taken place.

Holders FC Dallas Roll Over Ailing Rapids 3-1 in Round of 16 Opener

Defending champions FC Dallas strolled past Colorado Rapids 3-1 to book passage to the Quarterfinals of the 2017 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup. The visitors never really got going at Toyota Stadium in the first of eight Round of 16 games and they were hit hard by injury, a red card and a far superior opponent on the day.

Oscar Pareja’s FC Dallas piled the pressure on Colorado early, with Ryan Hollingshead and Maynor Figueroa both hitting the woodwork inside the first 20 minutes. And things only got worse for the Rapids when they were forced into a pair of first-half substitutions. Swedish defender Axel Sjoberg injured his hamstring and limped out, and he was followed shortly after to the training room by Dillon Powers.

Even with all the adversity, it looked like the away side might sneak into the half with the scores level, but more bad luck hit when a late challenge in the area gave the referee no choice but to point to the spot in the fading minutes of the opening period. Mauro Diaz stroked home with a calm penalty in the 45th minute to send FC Dallas into the locker-room with a fully merited 1-0 advantage.

The Rapids drew level 1-1 in the opening exchanges of the second half when Ugandan defender Michael Azira scored a rare goal from 20 yards. The leveler was a false dawn, however, as hopes of a second straight Open Cup comeback for the Rapids were dashed in short order. Diaz was again the creator in the 57th minute when his entry pass picked out Reggie Cannon who crossed low through the box for Hollingshead to clean up with a tidy finish at the back post. Outstanding goalkeeper Zac MacMath kept the Rapids alive with some stellar saves and a little luck as Tesho Akindele and Michael Barrios both hit the frame with the score stuck at 2-1. But an injury to Shkëlzen Gashi and a red card for Kortne Ford forced the visitors to finish the game with nine men.

Javi Morales rounded off the scoring in the dying moments with a pin-point free-kick that nestled in the bottom corner to settle the affair at 3-1. FC Dallas are now in fine fettle heading into the Quarterfinals and aiming for a second-straight Open Cup crown. Up next, they’ll face the winner of Wednesday’s contest between Houston Dynamo and Sporting Kansas City.
