The scene will be Snapdragon Stadium in San Diego, where Panama will take on Colombia, followed by Brazil facing Puerto Rico. This group will be interesting because it features the 2 best teams in CONMEBOL in Brazil and Colombia, but you add Panama, who made their Women’s World Cup debut last year and Puerto Rico to the mix, you provide some excitement. All of these teams have players that play with flair, and you should probably e ..read more

Tonight, they play in their first ever W Gold Cup match when they take on the Dominican Republic. It’s the first chance of the year to show that the team has improved from a tumultuous 2023 that saw them have their worst ever finish in the Women’s World Cup and has seen a coaching change and the departure of a few legends. The team they bring to the W Gold Cup is one that still has some legends, but the future ..read more

Photo by Friedemann Vogel - FIFA/FIFA via Getty Images The W Gold Cup begins! The 2024 Concacaf W Gold Cup is here! The tournament begins tonight at Dignity Health Sports Park with Group A action, and the first match pits Mexico against Argentina. Mexico is a team that has the talent to take the leap to the next level, and it feels like they are ready to make that leap. Mexico had the disappointment of missing out on the 2023 Women’s World Cup and the 2024 Olympics in a tournament that they hosted (the 2022 Conacacaf W Championship), so now they have been building for their next opportunity.

Photo by Robert Cianflone/Getty Images Canada should be considered a tournament favorite. The final group at the inaugural CONCACAF W Gold Cup features three in-region opponents and one guest nation from CONMEBOL. Not only is Canada expected to finish atop the standings, but the United States Women’s National Team’s chief rival should also put in a stern challenge for the title. While Costa Rica appears the likely runner-up on paper, Paraguay and El Salvador could provide a stern test in the pressure cooker of tournament play. All six matches will be held at Shell Energy Stadium in Houston, Te ..read more

However, Panama, Colombia, and Puerto Rico are hardly shrinking violets and will provide stiff competition, having survived the rigors of re ..read more
