The United States women's national team look to advance to their second straight World Cup final and their fourth final overall tonight as they battle the top team in the world, Germany. The US women are the only country to have reached semifinals of every FIFA Women's World Cup. The USA won in 1991 and 1999. Germany has also won this tournament twice.
Tonight's match will be a battle of a crazy good offensive team in Germany against a really good defensive team in the US. Since allowing a goal against Australia in its opening match on June 8 in the 27th minute, the U.S. has shut down opponents for 423 straight minutes.
The last time these two teams met was in 2013. The United States beat Germany in the Algarve Cup final, then drew with them, 3-3, in a friendly rematch a few months later.
The USA and Germany will play the first of two semifinal matches, as Japan meets England on July 1 in Edmonton. The winners will square off on Sunday in Vancouver.
