Which is my biggest fear about a utility player like Dunn at outside back instead of a dedicated outside back like Short or Hinkle. Dunn is fine in CONCACAF play or in endless friendlies, but is she really ready for when we play France, Germany, Japan, and so on at the World Cup? That's my fear. Dunn is really good. She's world class, but she's not a natural defender. Her speed will bail her out of some scrapes, but she's on the outside of two not terribly speedy center-backs. Which leads to another issue with the outside backs we tend to play, they're rather short. If she's having to cut in behind Sauerbrunn and cover on a break, she's going to be at a severe disadvantage getting up to crosses to the taller strikers she's going to find herself covering - But then Short and Hinkle aren't the tallest players, either.
