1. Will Christen Press, Lindsey Horan be the difference makers?
Christen Press and Lindsey Horan both had a tremendous impact on the success of the USWNT during Olympic qualifying. Press finished as the Golden Ball winner of the tournament, which is given to the top player in the completion. Her five goals placed her among the top three goalscorers during the competition.
Horan, meanwhile, enjoyed a fantastic showing. She scored in all but one of the matches during qualifying. Her six goals led the way for the USWNT. As a versatile midfielder, she could well play a big role in the outcome of this match.
Both of these players are in good form and are certainly going to be ones to watch during the opening fixture for the USWNT. It would not be surprising to see both players score against England.
