The last episode of 2020 for the Stars and Stripes FC Podcast is here! On Episode 33, we address the rumors of who the United States Women’s National Team could play at SheBelieves Cup: Brazil, Japan, and Norway. We discuss why each team could be a nice challenge for the 2-time defending world champions as they seek to win the gold medal at the Olympics.

After the break, we get to the USMNT, who have some friendlies coming up during a busy 2021. Which teams could serve as formidable opponents for the team as they prepare for the Nations League playoffs, the Gold Cup, and World Cup qualifying? We look at some options, including a couple that may be outside the box.

Finally, we close with a New Year’s wish for everyone in the American soccer community. Strength is the key word for that wish, because we will all need it to have a successful 2021.
