Utah Royals in France: Round of 16 Preview

A quick catch up and how to watch

Four players from Utah Royals FC are still in the tournament. Christen Press, Becky Sauerbrunn, Kelley O’Hara from the United States and Desiree Scott from Canada. Diana Matheson is technically still on international duty as well, but after surgery, don’t expect her to be lining up in gold anytime soon. Katie Bowen and Rachel Corsie will depart from the World Cup and strengthen up the defense, and I’m anticipating that they should be available for the game on July 28th against Reign FC. Whether they will play remains to be seen.
