The U.S. women’s national team’s first game of 2018 will be vs. Denmark on January 21 at San Diego County Credit Union Stadium in San Diego, California (7:30 p.m. ET on ESPN). Ticket info

Denmark finished second at the 2017 UEFA Women’s Euro tournament last summer, falling in the final to the host nation Netherlands. It’s the first meeting between the two teams since a 5-3 Denmark win at the 2014 Algarve Cup. The USWNT is 16-5-3 all-time vs. Denmark.

Denmark will likely feature a player familiar with NWSL fans in Nadia Nadim, the former Portland Thorns FC forward who joined Manchester City this offseason. Nadim scored twice in six games for Denmark at the Euro tournament this summer.
