The 2022 SheBelieves Cup kicks off Thursday, Feb. 17, and this is how you can watch all the action in more than 40 countries around the globe, including the USA.

 The seventh edition of the SheBelieves Cup, an invitational women's football tournament held every year in the USA, will take place in Carson, Calif., and Frisco, Texas, from Feb. 17 through Feb. 23.

The four-team round-robin tournament sees teams play one another once in group-stage style. Three points are awarded for a win, one point for a draw and zero points for a loss. The team with the most points wins the tournament. A tie in points is decided by goal differential, goals scored, head-to-head results and fair play ranking, in that order.  

The USA, Czech Republic, Iceland and New Zealand are the four participating nations in the 2022 SheBelieves Cup.

Iceland – Debutants

Ranked 16th in the world, Iceland enters the 2022 SheBelieves Cup as the second-highest ranked nation behind the United States. They will use the tournament to prepare for the UEFA Women's Euro 2022.

Head coach Thorsteinn Halldorsson's roster consists of players who play club football in six different countries – England, Germany, Iceland, Norway, United States, Sweden. The most familiar names from the roster to fans in the U.S. are midfielder Dagny Brynjarsdottir, who spent three years in the NWSL with the Portland Thorns, and midfielder Gunnhildur Yrsa Jonsdottir, who plays for the Orlando Pride.

New Zealand – Debutants

Czech manager Jitka Klimkova will see her team in tournament action for the first time after being appointed in September 2021. Klimkova selected 17 of the 22 players who played in Tokyo during the Olympic Games returned to the roster.

One of the headlines going into the tournament is the story behind experienced defender Rebekah Stott, who was diagnosed with stage 3 Hodkin's Lymphoma early last year and has since undergone successful treatment. Defenders Abby Erceg and Ali Riley are two standout players traveling to the USA.

United States – Hosts

The USWNT is the winningest team in SheBelieves Cup history, with four wins in six appearances as host. The Americans enter the tournament ranked No. 1 in the world and are the clear favorites to win it all.

Current USWNT Sports Female Player of the Year Lindsey Horan and veteran Abby Dahlkemper sustained injuries and were omitted from the roster. National Women's Soccer League Rookie of the Year Trinity Rodman and two-time MAC Hermann Trophy winner Jaelin Howell are exciting replacements for Horan and Dahlkemper.
