U.S. women will face improving Swiss for first time
[DATEBOOK] The U.S. women’s national team will face Switzerland for the first time on Aug. 20 at WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary, N.C. The Swiss have already
qualified for the 2015 Women’s World Cup in Canada with eight wins and a tie in their first nine games.
Switzerland is one of six nations that have already qualified, winning
European Group 3 with one match left to play. It has outscored its opponents, 48-1.
Former Ohio State star Lara Dickenmann, who plays for French
power Olympic Lyon, leads Switzerland in Women’s World Cup qualifying with 10 goals. Fabienne Humm, who plays for Swiss champion FC Zurich, has scored
eight times, as has former WPS player Ramona Bachmann, who plays for Swedish leader Rosengard. Ana Maria Crnogorcevic,
who plays for Frankfurt in Germany, has six goals in qualifying.
The game will be the sixth time the U.S. women have played at WakeMed Soccer Park, and first since the venue was expanded
to seat 10,000 fans.
