US sets to hold SheBelieves Cup women's soccer event in March
WASHINGTON, Jan. 14 (Xinhua) -- The United States will hold the fifth SheBelieves Cup women's soccer tournament in March, local media reported on Tuesday.
The 2020 SheBelieves Cup will take place from March 5-11 as three of the top teams in the world - England, Japan and Spain - join the United States in the elite four-team international tournament in women's soccer.
"US Soccer does such a great job staging this tournament and it's a world class event for the players and the fans," said US women's national team head coach Vlatko Andonovski.
"We look forward to welcoming these really talented teams to the USA and there's nothing better than facing players who force you to be your best in order to be successful, which is what we'll get from England, Japan and Spain. I know all the games will be excellent displays to show why the women's game keeps increasing in popularity and competitiveness."
The tournament will mark the United States' first meetings with England and Spain since last summer's FIFA Women's World Cup 2019. The US played both teams in the knockout rounds in France, defeating Spain in the round of 16 and England in the semifinals.
