The Americans face their toughest opponent yet tonight in the semifinals of the World Cup-- Germany, the odds-on favorite to win it all.
Many questions remain for this U.S. team, even amidst an undefeated run of five matches. Amy Rodriguez or Sidney Leroux? Kelly O'Hara or Heather O'Reilly? How many minutes should we expect to see out of Abby Wambach?
What we do know is this-- after a one-match ban for yellow card accumulation, do-it-all playmaker Megan Rapinoe is back in action.
As they say, #NoPinoeNoParty.
Get your popcorn ready.
