The USA’s women’s national soccer team (or USWNT) are the most successful women’s national team in history. They have won four World Cups in total and won the last two iterations of the tournament back-to-back. With an unprecedented threepeat at stake, the USA begin their campaign at Eden Park in Auckland, New Zealand. The eyes of the world will be on this seemingly unstoppable juggernaut of a soccer team, especially with iconic players like Alex Morgan and Megan Rapinoe potentially playing their final major tournament.   

Meanwhile, Vietnam are making their World Cup debut and will face a seriously stern test as they take on the defending world champions. Vietnam definitely fall into the underdog category, and will hope to rely on the experience of their 34-year-old captain, Trần Thị Thùy Trang. They'll attempt to navigate not only this match but a tough Group E which also includes the runners-up at World Cup 2019, the Netherlands. 

The USWNT are among the most exciting national teams in all of soccer, and they will want to kick off their World Cup by sending out a message to their rivals. You won’t want to miss the US vs Vietnam live stream, and we’ve got all the details you need to watch down below.  

For odds, DraftKings has USA as the overwhelming favorite at -20,000 to Vietnam's +5500. That means you'd win $5,500 if there's an upset, by betting $100. And betting $20,000 on USAWNT would net you a meager $100.
