Additional Notes:

The Sept. 17 clash with Australia will mark the USA’s fourth match in the Detroit area and third at Ford Field, home to the NFL’s Detroit Lions.

The USA played indoors at the Pontiac Silverdome in 1993 on grass in a test match for the 1994 World Cup, and then played at Ford Field in December 2008 and 2012 at the end of victory tours to celebrate the Olympic gold medals in Beijing and London, respectively.

The USA returns to Alabama for the first time in more than seven years. The U.S. Women played at Legion Field in 2003 against England, in 2004 against Brazil and in 2008 against Australia, a wild 5-4 victory that saw the Americans race out to a 4-1 lead only for the Matildas to roar back and tie the match. The U.S., which scored not one but two own goals in the game, won the match on a goal from Angela Hucles in the fourth minute of second half stoppage time.
