Insight

Like every other game in 2022, the United States Women’s National Team is expected to win on Saturday.

The USWNT and Colombia have 27 spots between them in the FIFA Women’s World Ranking. The USWNT are coming off two nine-goal demolitions against Uzbekistan in the April international window.

Elsewhere, Andonovski’s side hold 5-0 wins over New Zealand and Iceland and a goalless draw with the Czech Republic in 2022.

Most of the USWNT’s top figures are in camp for both games, including Alex Morgan, Lindsey Horan and Rose Lavelle.

Morgan might be in the best shape of any player on the team. She has 11 goals for the San Diego Wave of the NWSL this season.

Sophia Smith and Mallory Pugh are second and third behind Morgan on the NWSL scoring chart with eight and six goals respectively, so the USWNT has plenty of in-form scorers in camp.

The USWNT has never lost to Colombia in eight encounters. He has seven wins and one draw, and that record is set to extend to a nine-game unbeaten streak on Saturday.

The Americans have too much talent in every position to lose, and they should score a handful of goals with their in-form trio up front.

For Andonovski, Saturday’s game will be about finding the right roster combination for the Concacaf W Championship. The USWNT kicks off this competition on July 4 against Haiti. Jamaica and Mexico are the other two teams in the group.

Colombia are using the two-match set to prepare for their World Cup qualifying campaign. Colombia are grouped with Chile, Ecuador, Paraguay and Bolivia in Group A of the CONMEBOL qualifiers, which runs from July 8-30.

The USWNT should use some rotation in their squad for both matches, but they should win regardless of the players on the pitch due to the superior talent gap in their favor. A multi-goal victory should be in the cards if the USWNT plays at its usual high level.
