"They showed that the girls soccer team is better than the guys team, so girls can actually play soccer too, and I think we're actually better," says 13 year old soccer fan Emily Sosnowski.
Sosnowski and her friends braved the cold Nashville air for a chance to see their role models take on Scotland at LP Field.
"I love the USA soccer team, I love watching Alex Morgan, Hope Solo and Abby Wambach and Tobin Heath, I just love the USA team, they're really awesome," says 11 year old soccer fan Abigail Williams.
The team played in Music City in 2004. On that occasion they beat Canada. 9 years later, the players have changed, but the team's success continues.
Williams says one of her favorite players is #20 Abby Wambach, who was voted the Best Player in the World. On Wednesday, #20 became the only 8th player to make 200 appearances for Team USA. It inspired little Abigail to keep playing.
"Very excited because I play soccer too," says Williams.
The team is so good, in fact, they're even role models for the guys.
"It's great that they came down here, you can see a lot of people came out to support USA, it's just a great thing for Nashville," says soccer fan Ardlan Khalili.
