(WXYZ) — The U.S. Women's National Soccer Team will look to defend its World Cup title during the 2019 FIFA World Cup, which kicks off Thursday from France.

They are coming off an incredible run at the 2018 CONCACAF Women's Championship where they won the title while also not allowing a goal in the entire tournament.

The women's team will compete in Group F at the 2019 FIFA World Cup, which also includes Sweden, Chile and Thailand. They will compete in a round-robin tournament playing each other once. A win in the game is three points, a tie is one point and a loss is zero. The two teams with the highest point totals in each group will head to the knockout rounds.

Check out the U.S. Women's schedule for the group round below.

Tuesday, June 11 - USA vs. Thailand - 3 p.m. EDT
Sunday, June 16 - USA vs. Chile - 12 p.m. EDT
Thursday, June 20 - Sweden vs. USA - 3 p.m. EDT

Several of the team's veteran stars will return once again for the World Cup, including Alex Morgan, Julie Ertz, Tobin Heath and Carli Lloyd, who became somewhat of an American hero after scoring six goals in the tournament, including a hat-trick in the final against Japan.
