“Bad performance and a good result” is Alexi Lalas’s verdict on the USWNT W Gold Cup win. She also talks about the three things that are still missing.
  • The USWNT won the W Gold Cup.
  • Get the win in 5 out of 6 matches.
  • Lalas gives his opinion on acts


After beating Brazil 1-0, the USWNT won their first trophy of 2024, one of three possible awards. The former USMNT player-turned-analyst gave his thoughts on the team’s first event of the season.

Lalas said that the team needs more “ruthlessness, direction, and identity” while they are rebuilding.


“I thought it was a bad performance and a good result,” he wrote on social media site X. The #USWNT is still changing and doesn’t have a clear character, direction, or the will to be brutal. “However, I believe that winning is much better than losing.”

During the CONCACAF W Gold Cup, the USWNT won five of their six games. Their only loss was to Mexico in the group stage. During the match, they were exposed, and their straight North American rivals won every part of it. Lalas says that all of the things that need to be fixed were probably brought to light in that event.

But they were strong, and they came back to beat Mexico in the semi-finals and then Brazil in the final, shocking everyone.
