The U.S. Women’s National Team has scheduled a pair of friendlies against one of Europe’s rising teams.
The USWNT will twice face Switzerland on Oct. 19 at Rio Tinto Stadium and on Oct. 23 in Minneapolis at U.S. Bank Stadium. The matches will be the first for the U.S. following the completion of the NWSL season. The USWNT hasonly faced Switzerland twice, winning the first meeting, 4-1, in 2014 before shutting out the Swiss, 3-0, in 2015. Switzerland is currently ranked 15th in the world.
Prior to taking on Switzerland, the U.S. faces a pair of September friendlies. Thailand will serve as the USWNT’s opponent for a Sept. 15 friendly in Columbus before the U.S. hosts the Netherlands in Atlanta three days later.
