The United States Women’s National Soccer Team

In the month of February, the USWNT held their annual SheBelieves Cup, a tournament that helps get teams ready for the World Cup. This tournament encourages young women to achieve their dreams and give them the opportunities to prove themselves worthy of being the team on top.

This tournament consists of 4 different teams who have 3 different matches each. The tournament took off on February 16th and ended February 22th. Each of these games are held in different cities in the United States, thus giving athletes the opportunity to compete in different stadiums.

The teams that were eligible to participate in this year's tournament included the United States, Brazil, Japan and Canada. The United States won each game, with their first game against Canada being won 2-0 on February 16. The next game was a close call won by just one goal against Japan.

In that same vein, their last game against Brazil was won by a single point, 2-1 on February 22. After winning this game, they were crowned as the champions of this year's SheBelieves Cup, just as the year prior.

Seven years ago, the first SheBelieves Cup Tournament took place and has continued to happen annually as the US team continues to prove themselves as the best women's team in the world, having won 6 out of the 8 possible titles given.

The MVP of the 2023 tournament is Mallory Swanson, as it was her who scored 4 out of the 6 goals the team had attained throughout the tournament.

United States Women's National Teams continue to be the best women's soccer team in the world and just as of last year in February, they were finally able to get equal pay for doing the same exact thing the men's teams do.

It took them many years to be able to get to this point, but now that they’re here, they haven’t stopped fighting for women's rights. This is more than just a team, this is a family that sticks together through all the hardships they deal with and I have high hopes for them being able to be the champions of the World Cup.
