Last Time USA Played Opponent: The USWNT last met Chile earlier in the 2019 PAG. After trailing for three quarters, USA rallied to score four goals in six minutes in the final quarter to defeat Chile 4-2. Before that, the two teams competed in a series of test matches in January prior to the start of the 2019 FIH Pro League. Even though USA dominated possession for both games, the results were 0-1-1 following the two-game series played in Santiago, Chile.
What You Need to Know: As Pan American rivals, USA and Chile have battled it out in numerous test series and tournament match-ups. Chile comes off a close game against No. 3 Argentina where they kept Las Leonas to two goals until they could answer with one of their own. The comeback was short-lived, and Argentina ultimately scored again to prevent Chile from tying the match. Meanwhile, USA comes off a tough loss to No. 18 Canada where they could not connect to get on the scoreboard following four goals by their opponent. The USWNT will look to capture the bronze medal by defeating the familiar foe of Chile.
