Team to Watch: USA

The Team USA women were stunned in the Women’s World Cup finals by Japan a year ago and will be seeking their revenge in London this July and August.

They have a stellar team led by stars Alex Morgan, Abby Wambach and Hope Solo, all who had incredible World Cup performances that they will be looking to improve upon.

It would be a surprise if the Americans did not make a deep run through this tournament.
