Players to watch

Even with the Olympics just weeks away, Hayes is just getting her first time on the sidelines with the USWNT, so players are still receiving final evaluations ahead of a final selection for the Paris Olympics. Tuesday’s win featured 16 different players on the field, with Hayes and the coaching staff maximizing their substitution windows to get more players into the game.

It was a pretty clear indication that the full 23-player roster will be utilized, especially in light of some lingering injuries to some players who initially entered the camps. After Tuesday’s win, Hayes praised the players’ efforts following an intense week of training, with only seven players yet to receive minutes, including Alex Morgan. While Hayes provided more context in the post-match comments, it was a precaution the staff took for the veteran forward due to pelvic strain during training and failed to mention that they wanted to play a “nice and fresh” Morgan in Minnesota.

So here are a few players to watch:

Rose Lavelle: The attacking midfielder has found her way back to solid form after dealing with a lower leg injury following the USWNT Concacaf W Gold Cup title match. She played just 30 minutes on Tuesday and made an immediate impact, providing an assist on one of Mallory Swanson’s goals to get a full half to close out the series.

Alex Morgan: A veteran of the side who was in good form during the Gold Cup, but has been dealing with a lingering injury and now has a new coach to work with. How and if she will be used will be a big question mark as this is the final match before Hayes announces her Olympic selection.

Jaedyn Shaw: The 19-year-old leads the national team in goals scored this year and has been on the pitch in a variety of attacking roles. She left the Gold Cup as number 10, but with Lavelle back in the mix, she saw time on the wing as a substitute on Tuesday. She is also dealing with a lingering injury, so the coaching staff could limit her role again as a precaution.

What they say

Hayes didn’t shy away from applauding the team’s efforts and their willingness to adapt to new information in the opening week. Despite the big win on her debut, she balanced high praise as she showed the group moving forward that there is still more to improve in their second match against South Korea.

“I trained them quite hard this week and because of the altitude, the heat and the training I thought there was a bit of lethargy, but I thought the team hung in there,” she told broadcasters after the match. “I thought we were controlled in what we did in the first half, we stuck to the structures, we stuck to the coaching. Sometimes I felt like maybe we could have played at the back at the right moments, but from underplaying to replaying is usually the first step… Everyone did what I asked of them.’

“I think you can see we’re building something,” Hayes said during her post-match conference call. “There’s a lot of work to do. There are a lot of holes in our game, there’s no doubt about that, but it was a good start.”

Prediction

There will likely be player rotations by Hayes and some adjustments by South Korea, so maybe not another lopsided win, but look for another convincing performance for the US. Choose: USWNT 3, South Korea 0
