Naeher recently sealed the United States semifinal victory when she saved a late-game penalty kick against England, while Ertz has been dominant throughout the tournament as the teams’ defensive mid, while sometimes slotting in at center back. Brian and Davidson both saw time in the group stage and contributed to the win over Chile.
The excitement around the team is vibrant and buzzing, and the city is ready for the U.S. women’s team and their local Red Stars to bring the World Cup back to the Windy City.
Here are a few places to post up and watch the match kicking off this Sunday, July 7, at 10 a.m. CT on FOX. Second City Soccer will have live pregame coverage from Soldier Field on Twitter @SecondCitySoc and Facebook.
