SB Nation put together a nice quick pre-match preview, and you can find their more expansive guide to the Cup, too. Stars and Stripes, as usual, is doing good work. On the less serious side of things, Once a Metro gives us a semi-historical walk through 1999, when the women last won the tournament.
