The USA opened the delayed Tokyo 2020 Olympics with a 3-0 defeat to Sweden on July 21 at Tokyo Stadium. The loss – which was just the USA’s second defeat in regulation ever at an Olympics – ended the USWNT’s 44-game unbeaten streak, which was the second longest in program history. The USWNT also lost the opening match of the 2008 Beijing Games, a 2-0 setback to Norway, but went on to win the gold medal.
New Zealand is also looking to get back in the win column . . .
