Welcome to the unofficial start of the United States Women’s National Team Way to the 2023 World Cup.

The mixed feelings about this year’s Olympic bronze medal are also a thing of the past, as are the four friendlies following the melancholy “Celebration Tour”, the last of which as a farewell game for Carli Lloyd, who retired after almost 17 years as a professional.

Now a young US team is going to a friendly game in Australia over the course of the next week. The roster hardly looks like the one that went to the Olympics a few months ago. It includes six players without team access and many more who have little experience or have not been on the team for several years. Not every player on the journey will stay in the long run, but one thing is clear: this is a group that US head coach Vlatko Andonovski believes can move forward.

“Australia is the starting point for the next chapter,” said Andonovski The equalizer. “In the next chapter up to qualifying, the main objective is to identify the players who we believe will help us first and foremost in qualifying and then hopefully in the World Cup.”

Andonovski and his coaching staff have identified three different groups of players. First are the players he needs to see more of to see if they can contribute to the development and advancement of the United States. Think of these as the fringe gamblers fighting for a different look.
