This summer, the USWNT will compete in the Concacaf W Championship. The tournament will be held in Mexico and will feature three top teams from the continent. The tournament winner will be eligible for the 2024 Olympics. The runners-up will compete against each other in a playoff in September 2023. The USWNT has three main goals in July.
The first goal is expected to be scored by the United States women’s national team, with Melina Rebimbas opening the scoring in the 18th minute. Onyeka Gamo closed the scoring in the 58th minute. While their offense was effective, the U.S. women’s defence was able to keep a clean slate. They also dominated possession, completing 566 passes to Canada’s 166.
The USWNT can play matches throughout the international window, while the CONCACAF women’s soccer ecosystem as a whole benefits from more competition. In addition to more friendly matches, a tougher qualifying tournament would reduce lopsided results. The tournament will be more competitive if there are more CONCACAF teams. The USWNT can expand CONCACAF to play more matches and have more friendly matches, which will be beneficial for the entire region.
The CONCACAF W Championships will be held in the United States and Canada. The gold medal was won by the U.S. at the last summer’s Olympics. Canada won the championship. Canada is the leader of Group B and is a strong contender in CONCACAF W Championship. The winners of the tournament will qualify for the World Cup in 2023 and the winner will qualify for the Summer Olympics in Paris. However, the third place playoff winner will face the loser in the final match. The match is not scheduled to start until September so the U.S. may have to wait a bit longer to qualify for the Olympics.
The CONCACAF Women’s U-20 Championship, an association football tournament, is held bi-annually in North America, Central America and the Caribbean. It was first played in Nicaragua in 2002, but was postponed due to civil unrest in the country. The tournament resumed five weeks later in Florida. The United States has the chance to win its fifth consecutive Concacaf Women’s Championship with a new coach.
The Concacaf W Championship is the stepping stone to the Olympic Games for the United States and Canada. The winner will be automatically qualified for the 2024 Olympics in Paris. In the past, the USWNT has won the Concacaf W Championship eight times, including the last two editions. Canada was the only country to stop the American dominance in 2010, while Mexico, Costa Rica and Mexico both reached the final two times.
The Concacaf Women’s Championship Mexico will be the venue for the U.S. women’s team. The tournament will determine which teams will be eligible for the 2023 Women’s World Cup or the 2024 Olympics. The World Cup will be awarded to the top two teams from each group. The third-place team will go on to the inter-confederation playoffs. The winner will play in the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris.
