United States Statements

Twila Kilgore spoke ahead of the match against the Dominican Republic: "Not only is there a trophy at stake, but this is a great opportunity to capitalize on opportunities and experience the reduced changes between matches, which is a rhythm that reflects the Olympic format. We are going to take the next steps together as we continue to evolve our style of play and provide opportunities for female players to grow into potential future roles and partnerships.”

"In Alex's terms, and I suppose this applies to everyone who is not here, everything that happens in the Gold Cup will matter in terms of the future and everything that happens outside the Gold Cup will matter in the future. We recognize that "There are multiple actors that aren't going to be in the environment that we're still looking at, but they're still very much in the mix."

"Of course, with the preseason underway, there will be opportunities for preseason matches for those who are not in camp with us. If you play in Europe, there are opportunities there and then our league will start very soon here. We will be watching and we want to choose the best team and it's going to be very competitive."
