Team news & squad
|goalkeeper||Campbell, Fanch, Closer|
|defender||Dahlkemper, Davidson, Dunn, Krueger, O’Hara, Sauerbrunn, Sonett|
|midfield player||Ertz, Horan, Lavelle, Macario, K Mewis, S Mewis|
|Forward||Heath, Lloyd, Morgan, Press, Rapinoe, Williams|
After arriving in Japan as the overwhelming favorite, the USWNT have struggled to shape the tournament, with only one regular win – a 6-1 demolition from New Zealand – to their name.
However, with their win on penalties over the Netherlands in the quarterfinals, Vlatko Andonovski’s pursuit of Olympic gold in the world title remains alive – and with talents like Tobin Heath and Megan Rapinoe they will treasure their chances.
Predicted USWNT from XI: Closer; O’Hara, Dahlkemper, Sauerbrunn, Dunn; Horan, Ertz, S. Mewis; Morgan, Rapinoe, Heath.
|goalkeeper||Labbe, Sheridan, McLeod|
|defender||Chapman, Buchanan, Zadorsky, Riviere, Lawrence, Gilles, Carle|
|midfield player||Quinn, Grosso, Scott, Fleming, Schmidt|
|Forward||Rose, Leon, Sinclair, Viens, Prinz, Beckie, Huitema|
Like their opponents, Les Rouges only won the only game in Tokyo 2020 for 90 minutes, a 2-1 victory over Chile in the group stage, and given the USWNT’s pedigree, they will undoubtedly go under as underdogs, even with their shooting success against Brazil.
Bev Priestman’s team has no shortage of match winners in their ranks, not least skipper Christine Sinclair, who at 38 is likely to see her last chance for a gold medal after bronze placements in London and Rio in her previous Olympic campaigns.
Estimated starting XI for Canada: Labbe; Lawrence, Gilles, Buchanan, Chapman; Scott; Fleming, Quinn; Sinclair; Beckie, prince.
