USA vs. Nigeria, Women's World Cup: Starting lineups

New, comment

After calls from all over to start some actual outside midfielder, United States women's coach Jill Ellis appears to have acquiesced. Tobin Heath and Megan Rapinoe will start on the outside with Abby Wambach and Alex Morgan at forward.

In case you need some help deciphering that rather odd lineup graphic, here it is in plain English: Solo, Krieger, Sauerbrunn, Johnston, Klingenberg, Heath, Lloyd, Holiday, Rapinoe, Wambach, Morgan.

If the United States can actually put a semblance of an attack together, this could well be the lineup for the rest of the tournament.
