    Updates to the FIFA calendar that honestly won't affect the immediate future as the women have nothing scheduled, but still good to know:
    -Olympic window is now set as 21 July to 6 August 2021 (yes, the IOC had already moved the Olympics, but this is FIFA setting the window for club release dates and such)
    -Originally scheduled Type II window in June-July 2021 scheduled as 7-16 June 2021 (for all but UEFA; consecutive Type I window set as 7-15 June 2021)
    -existing window of 14-22 September 2020 cancelled for all confederations except UEFA
    -13-21 September 2021 Type I window will be consecutive with an alternative 13-25 September 2021 Type III window for all confederations, except UEFA

    The updated calendar is here: https://img.fifa.com/image/upload/r1bjp24jndwtqm5ecvzt.pdf

    Original calendar with definitions of the types of windows is here: https://resources.fifa.com/image/up...ar-2020-2023.pdf?cloudid=uoleugt7yudo3zavog9a

    One of the cliches that should be abandoned is the statement that "the gap is closing between the U.S. women and the rest of the world."

    The 2019 World Cup showed that the gap is widening. The U.S. has never fielded such a dominate team. Nobody even came close to beating them, although Spain showed well and tough.

    but rather NWSL’s underwhelming schedule will be the downfall of the USWNT? We’ve ready seen the whole Australian contingent dump the NWSL for the greener($$$)pastures of England, now with the recent rumor that Press & Heath are heading there as well to join Mewis & Lavelle, Could this mean the beginning of the end of US domination?(if you feel like I do that having what was the strongest league in the world was one of the main reasons for the US success)

    Well, although I agree that the USA have dominated the WWC, I guess your statement is quite inaccurate: nobody have beaten USA, but there definitely were teams that "went close": not only Spain, but also England, since they were one failed PK away from equalizing the semi-final, and who knows how the game would have ended if that PK had been converted.

    So what Top 10 Teams did some of the other Countries beat in the '19 WWC?

    #6 England beat ......................................
    #5 Sweden beat #8a, #6, #2,
    #4 Netherlands beat #5
    #3 France beat #8b
    #2 Germany beat ....................................

    And as always, please remember the little known 11th Commandment that Moses unfortunately dropped when traversing down Mount Sinai - - - "Thou shalt not question the FIFA Women's Rankings".

    Here are the currently scheduled 2021 USWNT dates:



    Will there actually be a SheBelieves tournament? Will any teams come for matches during the camps? Will the 2020 Olympics really happen in 2021? All good questions that cannot be answered yet.

    Carli Lloyd's future plans are essentially to stick around for one more Olympics:

    The way she playing it’s better just to leave her alone in the box.
