USWNT & Spain Face Each Other For First Time In History

USWNT & Spain Face Each Other For First Time In History

The USA is coming off a 3-1 loss to 2019 Women’s World Cup hosts France on January 19 in Le Havre and will now look to get back to its winning ways when it faces Spain on Jan. 22 at Estadio José Rico Perez in Alicante (2:30 p.m. ET on ESPN2 & UDN). Spain will also be in France this summer after qualifying for its second Women’s World Cup.

A less than full-strength U.S. side faced a very talented and athletic France team in front of 22,870 last Saturday night. It was the USA’s first loss in 29 matches dating back to the summer of 2017. Since the 2017 SheBelieves Cup in March of that year, the USA has failed to score in just one game (vs. Australia at the 2017 ToN). That’s a 34-game span.
