The U.S. women’s national team is set to square off against South Korea on Tuesday at Allianz Field in St. Paul, Minnesota. The two sides played to a scoreless draw on Thursday in Kansas City, and the match is the final game of the two-game series between sides. Tuesday’s game is also a farewell match for longtime USWNT player Carli Lloyd. 

The 17-year veteran is stepping away from the game after announcing her retirement in August. Lloyd is currently the second-most capped player in world soccer history with 315 games played and has scored 134 international goals, third in USWNT history and fourth all-time in the sport. She will play her final USWNT game Tuesday before concluding her playing career in the NWSL regular season with NJ/NY Gotham FC.

Storylines

USWNT: While the team is likely to see Carli Lloyd in the lineup in her final match, there are questions on how they will line up otherwise. The team struggled to break down South Korea, and were lacking the extra pass in the final third last week. The Americans were tested on the flanks as Kelley O’Hara and Casey Krueger were tasked with starts at outside back. While there likely won’t be any drastic changes in the final post-Olympic exhibition game and what is being billed as a celebratory match, there will be eyes on the U.S. attack and their finishing.

South Korea: The South Korean side ended a 22-game home winning streak for the USWNT in their previous meeting and will try to play spoiler on what’s supposed to be a celebratory evening. The team will likely look for another solid midfield performance from team captain Soyun Ji, and another big game from goal keeper Younggeul Yoon. Yoon faced 19 shots from USWNT in the scoreless draw on Thursday.
