Former U.S. WNT player Leslie Osborne expects the U.S. to come out strong vs. Thailand tonight:

“They are out to prove a point. Especially after watching some of the more dominant performances, I think it’s fueled them even more to come out and make a statement.”

Two-time World Cup champion Christie Pearce Rampone picks Alex Morgan as her player to watch this evening:

“For me, Alex Morgan is the player to watch in this game. She is a fierce player and a proven goal scorer, which other teams fear. She is the enforcer up front. It’s going to be exciting to watch her prove herself in this tournament.”

Studio analyst Kelly Smith thinks patience will be a key factor for the U.S. WNT in its opening match:

“It’s about patience for this U.S. team today…They’re going to have to play a lot of high-tempo and move the ball quickly to move the Thai players around. They need their creative players to play today. Your Alex Morgans, your Megan Rapinoes, your Tobin Heaths. Those front three are going to be key for me to move in and not stand still. Rose Lavelle also a key player, if she starts today, linking with those front three.”

FOX SOCCER TONIGHT analyst Cobi Jones says it is important for the U.S WNT to make a statement vs. Thailand:

“I want them to set the tone. We’re talking ‘All Eyes on Us,’ so go out there and be as good as France if not better. Have everyone chase you.

“Swagger and style are important here. This is No. 1 playing against No. 34. Go out there and show that you can dominate a team back to front. Go out there and dominate in every position.”

Studio analyst Eniola Aluko says the U.S. WNT is ready to get out there and prove what they can do:

“There’s only so much you can talk about football, right? Leading up to this World Cup there would have been a lot of preparation, a lot of meetings. I personally hated meetings…At some point you just want to get out there. Especially in a game like this for USA, where they’re expected to score a lot of goals. It’s time to just do it.”
