Both clubs have during the summer undergone changes in management following the respective departures of now-England boss Roy Hodgson and Kenny Dalglish.

The starting XI vs. North Korea

In the eyes of many, the U.S. U-20 WNT went into the 2012 U-20 Women's World Cup semifinal in an unusal role: underdogs. Coming off a 3-0 loss to Germany in its Group D finale, and facing a North Korean team that had rolled through group play by scoring 15 goals, by far the most in the tournament, while featuring no less than 10 players from its 2012 Olympic, well, you can see why the Asian power was perhaps the favorite.
