For the fourth time in six iterations of the SheBelieves Cup, USA ended at the summit of the four-nation tournament on Wednesday. And for the third time, the hosts of this annual event did so with a perfect record.
Not that the world champions had it all their own way, having been pushed hard in matches against second-placed Brazil and, in particular, Canada, as all three build towards July’s Women’s Olympic Football Tournament Tokyo 2020. Argentina - who replaced Japan a month ago in the Orlando-based tournament - had a tougher time, but they will have greatly benefitted from the chance to tackle three top-ten opponents.
