Nigeria vs USA

Nigeria sit at the bottom of Group D with just one point while the USA is on top of the group with four points. Nigeria is a team that likes to attack and may have a tough time breaking down the US defense. The Nigerian defense has given up five goals this tournament and while the US hasn't been the scoring threat we have seen in the past Nigeria will still have their hands full. Abby Wambach came into the USA's draw against Sweden as a second-half substitute, only the second time in her career as a sub.
