Vlatko Andonovski often has an embarrassment of riches to choose from – and even with a smaller squad than normal for this crop of games, his current party is no exception.
With Tobin Heath back in the fold following her move to Arsenal and the evergreen Megan Rapinoe retained, there is no shortage of firepower among the hosts’ ranks.
Predicted USWNT starting XI: Campbell; Sonnett, Dahlkemper, Sauerbrunn, Davidson; Lavelle, Horan, Mewis; Lloyd, Heath, Rapinoe.

Colin Bell knows how to win big games, having led Frankfurt to the UEFA Women’s Champions League crown back in 2015, but he’ll know that his task will be far from easy in taking a win off their hosts in Kansas.
His squad blends a host of domestic talent with a handful of foreign-based players, such as captian Ji So-yun and midfielder Cho So-hyun, with Tottenham and Brighton respectively.
Predicted Korea Republic starting XI: Yoon; Choo, Lee, Jong; Lim, Kim H., Ji, Hong; Cho S., Choe, Yeo.
