Fans and a 5 member group are set to name the MVP from these games that will close out around 9 p.m. ET as the US take on Argentina kicking off at 7 on FS1 & TUDN. The USWNT need but to win or tie to take the title. VISA in their 2nd straight year as the presenting sponsor of this honor, to be presented following the US game.
