Throughout the 2019 Women's World Cup the United States Women's National Team has been the heavy favorite to repeat as champs. After dominant performances in the early rounds, the team faced stiffer challenges in elimination matches, squeaking by Spain in its first match of the knockout stage, topping host nation France in a historic quarterfinal match and earning a gritty 2-1 victory against England in the semifinals.
