Carli Lloyd and team is looking to get just one point to get on the top spot in the group table. On that basis, US becomes more favorable to go in the top 8 round. Then, the winner will play with the third placed team, and the runner-up will have a game with first place team of Group F, i.e., Canada as of now who won 2012 bronze.
However, the match with the third placed team can be really tough, if it turns out to be an opponent like Germany or Australia or any other high ranking team.
However, US team shouldn’t have any reason to fear from any other team. The world champions haven’t yet reached in their best / top notch form. However, they showed some glimpses in Brazil, but they were only shades. Without solid defense and mental toughness, winning games in a row become difficult.USA vs Colombia Live Score
