USA   United States: Seven likely starters were on the 1991 winners of the first Women's World Cup. This is an attacking team, as always, but with built-in flexibility due to the versatility of several players. Much pressure is on central defenders Carla Overbeck and Kate Sobrero to stop counter-attacks as outside backs frequently move forward. Kristine Lilly is the team leader at midfield. Forwards Tiffeny Milbrett and Cindy Parlow must score to make opponents pay for likely double-teams of all-time world scoring leader Mia Hamm. Chances: Excellent to make finals.
