Current form: USWNT vs Australia

The Stars and Stripes continue their prep for the upcoming 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup as they take on familiar foes Australia in yet another warm-up friendly on Thursday, April 4. Jill Ellis's squad ended up finishing second at the recent SheBelieves Cup and certainly will look to improve on those performances as they gear up for what will be their sixth overall game this year. Next up on the menu will be ties against Belgium on April 7, South Africa on May 12, New Zealand on May 16, and Mexico on May 26 before opening up their World Cup title defense against minnows Thailand on June 11.

But before then, the no. 1 ranked side in Women's Football will be looking to defend a very impressive record against Australia. To date, the USWNT have lost just once to the Matildas, albeit that was pretty recently at the 2017 Tournament of Nations. The two sides' most recent encounter ended in a 1-1 draw at the same competition in 2018, and the Americans had to fight from a goal down to secure a stalemate. This put them on course for the final round of matches which they eventually won by thrashing Brazil 4-1.

Australia's Women's National Team, meanwhile, won the 2017 Tournament of Nations and finished as runners-up in the 2018 edition. Currently ranked no. 6 in the world, the Matildas, who are now led by new coach Ante Milicic following Alen Stajcic's surprise sacking at the start of this year, come into this game in excellent form. So far, the visitors have beaten New Zealand, South Korea, and Argentina. But obviously, the USA will present their toughest test yet as they too, seek to ramp up preparations for the 2019 Women's World Cup in France in just two months' time.  

Match facts and stats: USWNT vs Australia

Team news: USWNT vs Australia

USWNT: No absences of note for the hosts, but Ellis could tinker with her squad after seeing some problems at the SheBelieves Cup, especially in defense and in goal.

Australia: Forward Hayley Raso, who suffered a season-ending injury last year, is back in the fold and will provide another option in attack alongside skipper Sam Kerr and veteran striker Lisa De Vanna.
