Canada vs. USA Women's Soccer: London 2012 Olympics Live Blog

After taking their quarterfinal matches against New Zealand and Great Britain respectively, Team USA and Team Canada will face off in today's semifinal soccer match.

It isn't expected to be an easy match for Canada, as the US hasn't lost to them since 2001. In an earlier match, Japan defeated France 2-1 in their semifinals and will play today's winner in the gold medal finals on Aug. 9.

Heads Held High

@ SteveNash :

MAJOR respect to the Canadian woman's soccer team! Didn't deserve to lose. Played some beautiful stuff and fought like crazy. Heads up.

Bronze Is Our Gold

It's a little joke that's been going around the HuffPost Canada office. It just hurts today. Go for the Bronze ladies, we're behind you all the way. -RN

Alex Morgan with 30 seconds or so left in extra time. She just heads it past McLeod's hand. HEART. BREAK. -RN
