USWNT vs Nigeria build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:

In a ridiculous run of form, USWNT have won 29 of their last 30 international matches, with a 1-1 draw against Sweden in April the only blip during that time. Of course, with Vlatko Andonovski’s side opening their Olympic campaign against Sweden next month, the United States will want to send out another message to their opponents that lightning won’t strike twice. USWNT face a Nigeria side without a win in their last two, drawing 3-3 with Portugal last time out after a 1-0 defeat to Jamaica.

  • USWNT (vs Jamaica): Franch; Sonnett, Dahlkemper, Davidson, Dunn; Lavelle, Horan, Macario; Purce, Lloyd, Press.
  • Nigeria (vs Portugal): Oluehi; Ogbonna, Payne, Chikwelu, Onumonu, Okeke, Ajibade, Ordega, Alozie, Ebi, Asisat-Oshoala.

Neither side picked up any fresh injury concerns in their last match.

Player to watch: Christen Press (USWNT)

If the United States are to add a record fifth Olympic gold medal to their collection, keeping Christen Press finely tuned ahead of the tournament will be absolutely vital.

The Manchester United forward is in the midst of an incredible run of form at international level, scoring 13 goals and assisting another 19 in her last 34 caps. Since the 2019 World Cup, Press has had at least one direct goal involvement in 18 of her last 23 USWNT appearances.

Few players in world football can match that output right now and during this recent tear, Press has moved to ninth in the all-time USWNT scoring charts. She needs another 15 goals to catch Cindy Parlow on 75, but you’d certainly back her to close that gap here against Nigeria.
