Tokyo — In a stunning upset, Canada defeated the U.S. women’s national soccer team 1-0 in the Tokyo Olympics semifinal on Monday. USWNT can still win bronze if they win their next game.
Canada, ranked no. 8 in the world, scored a goal in the 74th minute following a penalty by the USWNT. Jessie Fleming of Canada hit net, ultimately deciding the semifinal match and helping the team beat the U.S. for the first time since 2001.
USWNT’s starting goalie, Alyssa Naeher, suffered an apparent injury in the first half after colliding with defender Julie Ertz. Her replacement, Adriana Franch played the rest of the game.
