USWNT schedule: U.S. to host China in December friendlies

The U.S. women’s national team will take the pitch again in December, hosting China for a pair of international friendlies.

The USWNT most recently claimed a 3-0 win over Colombia, following a 0-0 draw against the World Cup darling in the first of two friendlies in October.

In September, the team bested South Africa in two friendlies, rebounding from a disappointing World Cup run. The shootout loss to Sweden in the Round of 16 marked the earliest-ever World Cup exit for the USWNT. That came after the team’s worst-ever group-stage result, which included a 3-0 win against Vietnam on July 21, followed by a 1-1 draw with the Netherlands on July 26 and a 0-0 draw with Portugal on Aug. 1.

Ahead of the World Cup, the USWNT kicked off the year with two resounding wins against World Cup co-host New Zealand, then swept its three games in the SheBelieves Cup, its next two friendlies against Ireland and its World Cup send-off match against Wales.

The USWNT has a 12-4-0 (W-D-L) record so far this year. Here’s everything you need to know about the rest of the USWNT’s 2023 schedule.
