The United States Women's National Team is in action tonight against England in the opener of the #SheBelieves Cup in Tampa, Floria. The #SheBelieves Cup is a four team international tournament that also features France and Germany and is being played over the next week in the United States.
The Goal for the USA: win and stay healthy
What to Watch For
1) A Bigger Challenge: The USWNT did not face much difficulty in CONCACAF Olympic Qualifying in February but should face a much bigger and far more difficult challenge in England, France and Germany. But if the USWNT is serious about winning the Olympic Gold Medal again in August, these are the kinds of tests you need.

GOALKEEPERS: Ashlyn Harris (Orlando Pride), Alyssa Naeher (Chicago Red Stars), Hope Solo (Seattle Reign FC)
