The United States national women’s team has become one of the true dynasties in soccer over the last decade, but losses befall all teams.
When was the last time the USWNT lost a game in the FIFA Women’s World Cup?
Well, you’ll have to go all the way back to the 2011 World Cup finals when the team lost to Japan on penalty kicks, 3-1. Abby Wambach scored the lone goal in penalties for the U.S. in that game.
That’s been a long time, and the USWNT has won two-straight Women’s World Cups since that finals loss.
The USWNT is one of the most efficient teams in all of soccer, and it’s impressive that the team hasn’t lost a game outright in the Women’s World Cup since the 2011 finals.
We’ll see if that streak continues in 2023 or if another country is able to defeat the favorite to win the FIFA Women’s World Cup this summer.
