SheBelieves Cup Matchday 2: USWNT vs England, Brazil vs Japan

March 2, 2019 By Angela Asante
Only England came out as victors on Matchday 1 of the SheBelieves Cup as Japan held USA to a draw whilst Brazil failed to protect their lead.

The opening day at the 2019 SheBelieves Cup was exciting and not lacking goals. England shocked Brazil 2-1 after the latter couldn't add more to the penalty kick they converted. The USA, meanwhile, were brought down to earth as they were unable to protect their advantage on two occasions.

Evergreen Rapinoe remains an influential component of the USWNT's roster. Always a threat in both set pieces and a fast dribbler on the flanks, her intelligent movement off the ball allowed her to be at the right spot for her "easy" goals orchestrated by the laborious Heath.

Alex Morgan came close to putting her name on the score sheet on several occasions before her efforts paid off in the 76th minute. Upcoming opponents England might suffer the consequences of Morgan's persistence in attack if luck doesn't favor them more than once as the 29-year-old Orland Pride forward is seeking to hit a milestone of 100 goals for the national team.

Likewise, the U.S. will want to keep it tight and have their keeper on top of her game after witnessing how Ellen White and Beth Mead fired outrageous goals to stun Brazil in 2-1 comeback win on Matchday 1. Appalling defensive errors by the Americans such as Davidson's failed backpass which opened the door for Emi Nakajima's curling 67th minute equalizer are details for the U.S. to work on and eradicate from their play as they prepare to defend their Women's World Cup title. Already, when Japanese striker Yokoyama launched a volley that crashed against the crossbar inside the 11th minute, it was clear that the Americans' defense had been exposed. 

Taking into account their strength of character, Japan is poised to keep Brazil at the bottom of the table whilst England vs USA could end in a spirited draw. This would allow the suspense to exist until the very last matchday of the SheBelieves Cup when favorites USA will lock horns against the Brazilians, shortly after the Japanese's date with the English.

Five points could prove just enough for the tournament to crown its winner. However, European contenders England will want to hit six out of six on Saturday evening. 

As things stand, the 2019 SheBelieves Cup table is as follows: 

1st - England: 3 points (+1)
2nd - Japan: 1 point (+0)
3rd - USA: 1 point (+0)
4th - Brazil: 0 points (-1)
