The prohibitive favorites coming into the tournament, Team USA has gotten off to a perfect start. Shattering records en route to an 18-0 goal differential in group play, their biggest test thus far has been Sweden, whom they dismantled with ease 2-0. Now things get serious.
On June 24 they'll take on Spain in their first game of the single-elimination knockout round. If they win, they'll take on France in the round of eight, who defeated Brazil in extra time. Spain finished Group B in second place (1-1-1, 4pts), while USA finished Group H in first place (3-0-0, 9pts).
Team USA is attempting to become the first team since Germany in 2007 to repeat as World Cup champions.
