    Despite a pretty strong schedule in early 2015, it’s disappointing that the USWNT will not play a top 15 ranked team in the final two months before the World Cup. As important as it is to get competition prior to the tournament, playing four games against teams that you’ve outscored 43-3 in the last ten matches since 2012 will not do great deals for preparation.
