International Friendly United States Washington Tickets

The International Friendly series is a women’s soccer tournament in which teams from all over the world participate. A lot of matches from these tournaments are not even televised, and so the only way for football fans to catch up with these events is through International Friendly United States tickets. So far, the top contenders for the win are Germany and the USWNT (The US Women’s National Team). The latter has dominated the tournament for many years, with the former posing as the biggest threat since the first take over. Although FIFA still ranks USWNT as number one, Germany is trailing behind them in second place. Their fans are hoping for a big upset as the 2015 World Cup approaches.

About International Friendly United States Washington Tickets

The United States women’s national soccer team (USWNT) is the United States’ women’s team in international association competitions. Controlled by the United States Soccer Federation, it participates in CONCACAF.  Having won the first women’s football world cup held in 1991, also in 1999 and four Olympic gold medals and nine Algrave Cups, it is seen as a strong team in the sport, currently ranked first in the world by the FIFA Women’s World Rankings.  It was selected as the US Olympic Committee’s Team of the Year in 1997 and 1999, and in the same year the whole team was chosen Sports People of the Year by Sports Illustrated.

Their debut match was played on August 18, 1985, under the coaching of Mike Ryan. The venue was Mundialto. What brought them onto the world stage was their iconic and most memorable win against China in 5-4 penalty shootout, and this led to an increased amount of media attention towards women’s soccer. After a tough competition both teams were in head to head match and tied 0-0, and remained so after extra time. With penalty shoot outs they tied at 4-4.  Brandi Chastain scored the winning goal.

But the most influential win came about on July 10,2011, in the quarter final of the Women’s World Cup in Germany, with a 5-3 penalty win against Brazil. Intriguingly, the game was held on the 12th anniversary of the famous 1999 world cup win.
The women team gained more attention, when they won the gold medal at the 2012 Olympics by defeating Japan 2-1, with almost 80,203 fans cheering them on at Wemebly Stadium. The match was played as a rematch of the 2011 Women’s World Cup final. The London Olympics marked the first time the USWNST won every game en route to the gold medal, setting a record of scoring 16 goals, with Wambach scoring five consecutive goals in five games.

One of the standout stars of the Olympics was Hope Solo, but she is not taking part in the Friendly because of an injury to her wrist. In addition, Carli Lloyd will also not be playing because of a fracture to her shoulder. Heather Mitts recently announced her retirement. Fans can catch the rest of the phenomenal ladies play with International Friendly United States tickets.
