"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.

Tishomingo County voters OK beer, alcohol sales
May 22, 2013 23:38 GMT
IUKA, Miss. (AP) -- Tishomingo County is the latest Mississippi jurisdiction to legalize alcohol sales.
Voters approved the sale of liquor, wine and beer Tuesday, reports the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal (http://bit.ly/13JCcix).
It wasn't clear referendums would pass until affidavit ballots were counted Wednesday.
With more than half Tishomingo County's voters casting ballots, legalizing alcohol passed by 42 votes, while legalizing beer and light wine passed by 73. The county borders Alabama and Tennessee.
Lawmakers legalized liquor at a proposed resort at the county's Bay Springs Lake in 2010, but it wasn't built.
Greene County voters legalized beer sales last year, while Corinth, New Albany and Senatobia have legalized alcohol sales under a 2012 law that allows cities to hold votes.
Mississippi has 13 remaining counties that allow no beer or alcohol sales.
