The Google U.S. homepage is sporting a FIFA Women’s World Cup doodle to mark today’s USA-Australia game. This is the first game of the tournament for the U.S.
The two teams have only played each other once before almost twenty years ago, a game the U.S. won 4 to 1.
“You never take something like this for granted,” says USA mid-fielder Megan Rapinoe
“The Americans begin their challenge against an Australia side that finished runners-up in the AFC Women’s Asian Cup and reached the quarter-finals at the last two women’s world finals,” according to FIFA.com.
Hosted in Winnipeg, Canada, the Women’s World Cup tournament started on Saturday, June 6 and will run through July 5. Today’s USA-Australia game is scheduled to start at 6:30 p.m. Winnipeg time.
