Soccer Saturday: Your Running Commentary


The U.S. Women’s National Team will continue their preparation for this summer’s Olympic Games in Rio, while a packed slate of MLS and NASL matches headline the evening.

Jill Ellis and the USWNT will take on South Africa on Saturday afternoon, as both teams prepare for next month’s tournament. The U.S. rides a 13-match unbeaten streak heading into the contest.

In MLS, six matches will take place on the day, including the Seattle Sounders hosting LA Galaxy at CenturyLink Field. Elsewhere, the Vancouver Whitecaps meet the Colorado Rapids and the Philadelphia Union faces D.C. United.

The NASL Fall Season hits week two this weekend as Indy Eleven and Minnesota United do battle after strong Spring campaigns. The New York Cosmos will travel to Miami FC, as the latter looks to put its revamped roster to the test against one of the league’s top sides.

    The USWNT looked like they typically do when they haven’t been together for awhile, vs
    RSA. They pass poorly and do not take advantage of the scoring opportunities which present
    themselves. Granted RSA did not allow a goal in their final 5 Olympic Qualifying matches,
    but the USA needs to keep their USWNT together from here until the Olympics if they are
    going to be the favorites. They need to run drills together so that everyone is one the same
    page when match time arrives. Their match play against RSA would not beat France when
    France brings their “A” game to the pitch. They will need to beat France in Group play if
    they want to coast into the Olympic Gold Medal Match against Germany. They could have
    benefitted with another match against RSA, while RSA was still around.
