Welcome to VAVEL.com’s LIVE coverage of the 2019 Competition match: USWNT vs Portugal! 

My name is Melina Gaspar and I’ll be your host for this game. We will provide you with pre-game analysis, roster updates, and news as it happens live here on VAVEL.

Kick-off time
The UWSNT vs Portugal match will be played at the Allianz Arena, in Saint Paul, Minnesota, United States. The kick-off is scheduled at 8pm ET.
Portugal is trying to improve
After months without playing, Portugal is looking to have some consistency. They collected a tough loss against the world champions last Saturday but truth is: You learn more from losing than you do from winning, and this is more true if you play against top teams. We will see if Portugal can show a different side this match.

USWNT: Is this the opportunity for Kristen Hamilton?
Last match, coach Jill Ellis subbed in everyone but the two backup keepers and Kristen Hamilton. The lineup changes started in the 52nd minute and the US team scored two more goals from that moment to finish with a 4-0 victory.


Will this be the time for Hamilton to appear at the international level? She has proved to have enough quality at a club level. Will coach Ellis give her the opportunity to demonstrate this a national level?

USWNT: Minnesota here they go!
After the USWNT big win last saturday against Portugal in Philly, the world champions moved to Minnesota to play at the Allianz Field today. Even though the US were missing some key players in their starting XI, they had no problem againt the Europeans and gave to the nearly 50.000 fans a sweet victory... and we expect to see the same outcome today.
