USA vs Vietnam - Women's World Cup preview: TV channel, live stream, team news and prediction

The USWNT begins its Women’s World Cup defense against Vietnam on Saturday afternoon.

Vlatko Andonovski’s side, champions in 2015 and 2019, will begin their tournament at Eden Park in New Zealand against a Vietnamese side who are in the competition for the first time.

Megan Rapinoe and Alex Morgan are the marquee names in the USWNT side, betting there is a wave of younger talent hoping to make a bigger impact for The Stars and Stripes.

They are hot favorites to get off to a strong start in Group E – here’s everything you need to know about the game.

USA vs Vietnam H2H record

The USWNT and Vietnam have yet to play each other on the international stage – the Asian team will be the 57th country to face The Stars and Stripes.

Vlatko Andonovski has a complete lineup for the USWNT’s tournament opener – which likely means a front three of Sophia Smith, Alex Morgan and Trinity Rodman.

Lindsey Horan will lead the side despite being named co-captain with Morgan, while we should expect Rapinoe to arrive at some point as the countdown to her retirement begins.

USA predicted lineup against Vietnam (4-3-3): Naeher, Huerta, Cook, Girma, Dunn; DeMelo, Sullivan, Horan (c); Smith, Morgan, Rodman

The USWNT has a phenomenal record at the Women’s World Cup against teams from the Asian Football Confederation – winning their last 15 matches.

Pre-tournament expectations see the USWNT installed as favorites to win the tournament, so it won’t be much of a surprise if they put down a goal with a dominant performance. Goals could be today, with a convincing win to come.

Prediction: USA 5-0 Vietnam
