This will be the second of two straight matches against Nigeria for the American women, with the first one resulting in a comfortable 4-0 win last weekend. Sophia Smith bagged a brace, with the opening goal in the 15th minute followed by another one in first half stoppage time. Lindsey Horan added one in the 25th minute, while Alex Morgan converted a penalty early on in the second half to complete the 4-0 rout over the Super Falcons.
These sides have met seven times so far across all competitions, but this will be just the third meeting as a friendly. The Americans are a perfect 7-0-0 against the Nigerians over the years, with the last meeting prior to the 4-0 win in Kansas City came in June of 2021, when the USWNT defeated the Super Falcons 2-0 in Austin, Texas. Christen Press and Lynn Williams each bagged a goal to help secure the win.
This will wrap up the September slate for the United States, as their next match won’t come until October 7 when they take on England in a friendly at Wembley Stadium.
