So the United States got together for an away friendly in the Netherlands and amidst a bunch of handwringing that they might be super rusty after being separated for the greater part of a year, they actually looked pretty good, particularly in defense, and it’s clear they’ve bought into on field tactical/organizational roles and are sticking to their principles. Also: BANGERS.

As if that weren’t enough, we also got the Return of Kristie Mewis, putting her back on the field with her sister after six years. Emotions!
