United States vs Chile FIFA Womens World Cup

The United States are ready to get back on the field. The USWNT have been criticized by many media members for blasting Thailand 13-0 in their World Cup opener, but many of those critiques will melt away provided they don’t beat Chile by 13 or more on Sunday. That’s extremely unlikely considering the style that La Roja employs, but nevertheless Chile are massive underdogs coming into their last match.

Everyone knew that the United States would beat Thailand in their opener on Tuesday, but no one expected to see a final score of 13-0. It didn’t seem like it would finish anything like that at halftime. The USWNT went into half up 3-0, and they seemed likely to just cruise the rest of the way. Of course, we all know that’s what ended up happening.

The Stars and Stripes poured it on in the second half. They scored four times in six minutes just after the break, and they secured the biggest blowout in World Cup history well before the final whistle. Alex Morgan set the record for most goals in a game as well with five goals against outmatched Thailand.

Chile are making their World Cup debut, and they nearly earned a result in their first match. They made the decision to lean on their defense from the opening whistle against Sweden, and that nearly led to a point. La Roja were close to earning a draw, but then the Swedes scored in the 83rd minute and sealed the victory with a goal four minutes into extra time.

United States Player to Watch

Any time you score five goals in a game, you’re someone to watch. This was seen as Morgan’s World Cup ahead of the first game, and she is off to the best start imaginable. She already has more goals than in her previous two World Cups combined, and she is only going to add to that tally the longer the USWNT are in the competition. Morgan has the benefit of playing with the most talented set of attackers in the world, so it’s impossible to focus on just her. That leads to more space than she would receive otherwise, and she makes the most of it.

Chile Player to Watch

Goalkeeper Christiane Endler is the best player on Chile. She is the captain of the squad, and she has more caps than any of her teammates. Endler stood tall in net against Sweden, and she will pose a much tougher challenge for the USWNT than any other goalkeeper they face in the group stage. She is one of the best goalkeepers in the world, and Endler was just named the best player in the French league after a fabulous season with Paris Saint-Germain.

After receiving a lot of criticism for their evisceration of Thailand, I expect the USWNT to put it in cruise control once they go up a couple goals. Chile are no threat to score on them barring a defensive collapse at the back, and I think this final score will be much more respectable. Endler will make a few big saves to help matters, and Chile will cover the goal line thanks to the Americans letting up relatively early.

United States vs. Chile Prediction: United States 4, Chile 0
