Down and Out: U.S. Women Beaten by Canada in Olympic Soccer Semi
by Simon Kent
There will be no gold medal chance for the U.S. women’s soccer team at the Tokyo Olympics after they went down to Canada early Monday morning.
The 1-0 victory was the first by the Canadians against their U.S. neighbour since 2001.
A second-half penalty delivered for Canada as it upset the four-time Olympic women’s football champions in Kashima to reach the final for the first time.
