The US women’s national soccer team is the most successful in international women’s soccer. The team has won three Women’s World Cup titles, four Olympic gold medals, eight CONCACAF Gold Cups and 10 Algarve Cups. On Friday, June 28th, the US team will face France in the semi-finals in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of the tournament.
