WHAT:Â Â Â
This game is a rematch of the U.S. and Canadaâ€™s initial group stage contest that took place just a little more than one-and-a-half weeks ago. The Stars and Stripes defeated the Canucks 3-1 while on their way to racking up two more decisive victories during group play. However, the U.S fell prey to a feisty Honduras team in this past weekendâ€™s semifinal game â€“ losing 0-2. While Canadaâ€™s performance was not as authoritative as the U.S. throughout the tournament (1-1-1- in group play), it was good enough for the team to earn a trip to the semifinals. With an Olympic berth on the line, the Canadians hopes were dashed after they ran into a determined Mexico squad that ended up defeating the team from north of the boarder 2-0.
For both the U.S. and Canada, this game is a must win. Simply stated, the loser will not go the Rio 2016 Olympics. The winner will travel to Brazil next March for a one-game playoff against Colombia to decide the final berth in next summer’s tournament.
