Powerhouse U.S. Women’s Soccer Team Takes The Field

The Opening Ceremony for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics isn’t until Friday, but televised competition on NBCUniversal channels has already kicked off. Wednesday will feature women’s soccer and softball, including powerhouse Team U.S.A. squads in each sport.

The U.S. Women’s Soccer team has won four Women’s World Cup titles (1991, 1999, 2015, and 2019), four Olympic gold medals (1996, 2004, 2008, and 2012), and eight CONCACAF Gold Cups. It medaled in every World Cup and Olympic tournament in women’s soccer from 1991 to 2015, before being knocked out in the quarterfinal of the 2016 Summer Olympics.
