Happy America Day, Americaland! Yes, it's America Day for the second day in a row, because the United States women's national team open their CONCACAF championship campaign against Trinidad and Tobago tonight. This is their first group game in World Cup qualifying, and the lineup is an interesting one. Thanks for the surprise, Jill Ellis!
Yes, that's Abby Wambach listed in midfield. So, functionally, this should be a 4-2-3-1 formation with Wambach playing behind Alex Morgan, while Lauren Holiday and Carli Lloyd run the show in midfield. Though, the formation isn't going to matter that much as the game wears on, because the USWNT should take a multiple goal lead pretty quickly.
Kickoff is just after 8:30 p.m. ET from Sporting Park in Kansas City. You can catch the game on FOX Sports 2, FOX Sports Go and FOX Soccer 2 Go.
