Draw to be held next Saturday.
World Cup Draw tomorrow on FS2 (11 AM) - will be captivating television.
We'll be the top seed in a group and get one of each of the other four Pots. Numbers are their world ranking.
No group can contain more than one team from each confederation apart from UEFA, which have nine teams, where each group must contain either one or two UEFA teams.
A decent draw for us; but, with Sweden for the 6th time in group play. Top two move on for sure and the third place team has a chance as well. 24 total teams for 16 knockout spots.
US Women lost their 2019 friendly opener to France, 3-1, in France. Several US starters were out of the lineup due to illness or injury and France is #3 in the world, Not an impressive showing for sure; but, at least there are explainable excuses for the loss.
Up next is a match in Spain on Tuesday. 1:30 PM US Central time on ESPN2.
