team in FIFA's Women's World Rankings, the U.S. Women's National Team has been one of the true powerhouses of the sport since
winning the first Women's World Cup in 1991. The team won their second World Cup in 1999 and will be looking to take home
a third in the 2015 competition after finishing a disappointing second in 2011. Scoring against the U.S. will not be easy
for the opposition with defender and captain Christie Rampone and goalkeeper Hope Solo, arguably the best keeper in the world,
holding down the defense. Up front Alex Morgan and Abby Wambach will provide the firepower to light up the scoreboards. This
is a team on a mission with some of their stars set to compete in their final World Cup next year. Additionally they have

are the only other CONCACAF women's teams to have made it to the World Cup with Mexico never making it out of the group stage
