Where to watch USA vs Canada live stream, TV channel and lineups for USWNT in 2024 SheBelieves Cup Final

0


The United States and Canada meet for the 66th meeting ever in the first-ever SheBelieves Cup final on Tuesday in Columbus, Ohio.

With the nine-year-old competition, which normally features a four-team round-robin tournament, now being reorganized for the first time and featuring a bracket, it is fitting that these two top-ranked North American competitors advance to the title game.

The two teams played in a thrilling, rain-soaked tie in San Diego last month and will meet again with the 2024 Summer Olympics looming. The United States defeated Japan 2-1 in comeback fashion on Thursday to reach this round, while Canada beat Brazil on penalties after a 1-1 draw.

Although this game is technically considered a friendly for the FIFA rankings, it will be anything but a friendly as two rivals have a trophy on the line and know they will need to be at their best with the Paris Olympics looming.

USA vs. Canada lineups and team news

How many minutes Mallory Swanson And Catarina Macario Who will play in this game is unclear and there is reason to believe that neither will start, even though Swanson was electrifying in the semi-final against Japan.

Having just completed 80 minutes in this game three days ago, Twila Kilgore has decided that Swanson will play a substitute role against Canada while he returns to full fitness from injury, while Macario has been very slow to be welcomed by both club and country was introduced. Sophia Smith earned a start here with their electrifying play off the bench in the semi-final.

Sam Coffey cleared the concussion protocol and starts, but Naomi Girma She suffered a hamstring injury in the semi-final and is “fit for everyday use”, meaning she will be on the bench for now and her availability to take part is uncertain.

USA starting lineup (4-3-3): Closer (GK) – Fox, Dahlkemper, Davidson, Dunn – Sonnet, Horan, Coffey – Shaw, Morgan, Smith.

Canada's head coach Bev Priestman In the semi-final against Brazil she used a whopping five strikers, but here in the final she returns to a more traditional formation against a very dangerous US team. Priestman decides Cloe Lacasse one or the other player is in front, while a midfielder is added Simi Awujo who is elected Julia Grosso to fill the gap.

They lack an experienced midfielder Quinn He left the squad after suffering a concussion while on club duty with Seattle Reign, as did the midfielder Olivia Smith who has a minor knee injury and was unable to participate. Longtime veterans Sophie Schmidt And Christine Sinclair were eliminated after the World Cup last summer and are no longer available for selection.

Canada's starting lineup (3-4-3): Sheridan (GK) – J Rose, Gilles, Buchanan – Lawrence, Awujo, Fleming, Beckie – Leon, Huitema, D Rose.

USA vs Canada prediction

  • Result prediction: USA 2-0 Canada

Canada struggled in the semi-final against Brazil and had to defend for much of the game despite fielding a very attacking lineup.

It's likely that the USA will dominate possession in a similar way to how they did in the win over Japan, and if they create a similar number of chances they should find opportunities to finish the game. Canada is far more efficient in front of goal, as the USA saw in the encounter a month ago, and will take advantage of the opportunities that come their way, but they will have little chance in attack.

The return of Mallory Swanson was a particularly big boost and her involvement will turn the tide in the hosts' favor, especially considering she scored a brace in her last appearance against Canada.
