Coach Sundhage may change up her lineup for this Saturday’s game against Columbia. Unfortunately, it might be our very own Shannon Boxx.
She didn’t play well against North Korea. Her distribution with the ball was lacking and she was seemingly not a presence in the game. I know it can be tough to be on your game every game, everyone has those days. But, this is the World Cup and the USA doesn’t have time for any slip-ups.
Today in practice, it was Lori Lindseyand Carli Lloyd in the center of the U.S. midfield, not Shannon Boxx. For me, Boxx’s will eventually back in the line-up because her game will step up and she is tough to deal with in the air and her physicality can overpower others.
Keep following USA as they go for a World Cup title, its been 12 years since
their last one. They play their next game this Saturday vs. Columbia at 12pm (eastern time) on ESPN.
