The highlights of the three-game, 12-day tour will be two matches against newly-crowned Olympic champions and the world’s no.1 ranked nation the USA.
The world no.9-ranked Matildas will warm up against Haiti in Indianapolis before taking on the USA in Los Angeles and Denver.
“Two matches against the world’s top team on their home soil is a daunting challenge to say the least, but it’s the sort of test that will help us in the long-term,” Sermanni said.
“These games are part of celebration tour by the USA after winning Gold in London, so our job is to spoil the party if we can.”
