The U.S. Women's National Team (USWNT) will take on Paraguay in a friendly match at FirstEnergy Stadium Thursday evening. The contest will be the USWNT's first since taking home the Bronze medal at the Tokyo Olympics.

The game will be broadcast nationally on ESPN2. Coverage begins at 7:30 p.m. with an anticipated kickoff shortly thereafter.

The Cleveland match will be the first in a two-game series with Paraguay. After tonight's game, both sides will travel to Cincinnati for a re-match next Tuesday.

The USWNT has been dominant on U.S. soil in recent years. They last defeated Mexico in July, and have now won 20 consecutive home games.

Some of the top players from Tokyo, including favorites Megan Rapinoe and Julie Ertz, will not be on the roster this evening. But USWNT standouts Rose Lavelle, Tobin Heath, Carli Lloyd, and Alex Morgan will all be suiting up.

Lower bowl tickets are still available for $28
