MATCH PREVIEW: WNT Takes on Russia on April 6 and April 9 in Texas

In the first matches after the 2017 SheBelieves Cup, the U.S. Women’s National Team will jump back into action with a pair of friendlies against Russia on April 6 at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas (7 p.m. CT; FS1) and on April 9 at BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston, Texas (1 p.m. CT; ESPN).

The USA has faced Russia on eight different occasions – all friendlies – since their first meeting back on July 14, 1993, a 2-0 U.S. win in Hamilton, Canada. The WNT has never lost to Russia, compiling a 7-0-1 record with the only draw coming on Aug. 15, 2000, in College Park, Maryland.

Most recently the U.S. played a set of friendlies against Russia in February of 2014, earning a 7-0 shutout on Feb. 8 in Boca Raton, Fla., followed by another dominant 8-0 win on Feb. 13 in Atlanta, Georgia. Of the players on the USA’s training camp roster, Christen Press scored three goals in the span of those two games while Carli Lloyd scored two and Morgan Brian and Amy Rodriguez scored one each.

Russia, which is set to compete in the 2017 UEFA Women’s Euro this summer in the Netherlands, was drawn into a tough Group B with Germany, Italy and Sweden. Russia qualified for the tournament by finishing second behind Germany in Group 5 of the qualifying process.

Fans can follow all the action from #USAvRUS on Twitter @ussoccer_wnt and @ussoccer_esp, and follow the team along its journey on Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat (ussoccer_wnt).

ON LOCATION:

At Toyota Stadium: Overall, the WNT has played six matches in Frisco, Texas. Just last year, Toyota Stadium hosted the U.S. WNT for its three group games of the 2016 CONCACAF Women’s Olympic Qualifying championship. The U.S. went 3-0-0 in those matches, winning 5-0 against Costa Rica on Feb. 10, 1-0 against Mexico on Feb. 13, and 10-0 against Puerto Rico on Feb. 15. Previously, the U.S. had played three matches at the same stadium – formerly Pizza Hut Park and FC Dallas Stadium – going 3-0-0, with wins against Canada (6-2; 1-0) and New Zealand (2-1).

At BBVA Compass Stadium: Houston has hosted the USA on six previous occasions and most recently was the site where the WNT won its fourth Olympic Qualifying tournament. The first trip to BBVA Compass Stadium was a 4-0 win against China PR on Dec. 12, 2012. This was followed by two more wins, a 5-0 shutout of Trinidad & Tobago on Feb. 19 that secured the USA’s berth in the 2016 Olympics and the 2-0 win against Canada on Feb. 21 for the tournament title.
