USA warms up for FIFA Women’s World Cup qualifiers with a pair of friendly matches against Mexico.
The first meeting takes place on Saturday 13 September in Sandy, Utah (7:30pm MT), you can watch live on US Soccer.
These friendlies represent the final matches for both countries before the start of the 2014 CONCACAF Women’s Championship that will automatically send three teams to the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada.
The USA is 8-2-3 so far in 2014 and will be playing its fourth and fifth matches under head coach Jill Ellis since she was officially named to the position in May.
The USA will have had a week of training in Salt Lake City before the first Mexico game, which is the longest training period U.S. head coach Jill Ellis has had with the team since taking over. She and her staff will take full advantage of the 28-player roster. Ellis will not only have to choose 18 players to suit up for each of the two matches against Mexico, but is also tasked with the difficult challenge of choosing 20 players for the roster that will enter the Women’s World Cup qualifying tournament in October.
