Weather postpones Brasilia tournament matches

The United States women’s national team will not play Argentina on Wednesday as previously planned due to inclement weather. U.S. Soccer made the announcement on Twitter, stating that the match would not be played on Wednesday. There appears to be excessive flooding at the National Stadium of Brazil Mane Garrincha, where the International Tournament of Brasilia is being played.

Brazilian media outlet BAND, which is broadcasting the tournament, also reports that the Brazil-China game is postponed and that both matches will be played on Thursday. USA-Argentina will be played at 4:20 p.m. ET on Thursday and Brazil-China will kick off at 6:50 p.m. ET on Thursday.

The U.S. is in an unexpected position of third place after drawing China in last week’s opener and losing to Brazil 3-2 on Sunday after succumbing to a Marta hat trick.

The U.S. needs to beat Argentina by a large amount and hope that China loses by a large amount to Brazil, allowing the U.S. to make up the goal difference and finish second to qualify for the final on Sunday. Standings:

Team GP W L T GF GA GD Pts.
BRA 2 2 0 0 7 2 5 6
CHN 2 1 0 1 7 1 6 4
USA 2 0 1 1 3 4 -1 1
ARG 2 0 2 0 0 10 -10 0

The top two teams after round-robin group play will advance to the final.

U.S. players now have some unexpected time off on Wednesday. So, how about some soccer tennis?
