Rapinoe is back in the lineup for the USWNT


The starting lineups are out for the U.S. v. Germany semifinal match in the Women's World Cup. Seattle Reign players Megan Rapinoe and Hope Solo are both in the starting XI, to nobody's surprise.

After her strong performance against China, Morgan Brian also earns a spot in the starting lineup. Hopefully, this means Lauren Holiday can push into a more attack-focused position. She was deadly with FC Kansas City in this role last year.

While others are listing this lineup as a 4-3-3, it appears the USWNT may be going with just one forward. Germany has shown vulnerability on the flanks, so Rapinoe and Tobin Heath could be given more room to push the attack and find space behind Germany's outside backs.
