Sharing is caring!

The US Women’s Soccer team lost a stunner to Canada last night that bounced them from the gold medal game in what many, considering the US Team is the dominant team in the sport has routinely crushed Canada, a big-time choke job.

Barstool Sports made clear what kind of a choke this was reported: “For 1st time in 20 years, Canada has beaten the USA in soccer. Pain.”

The score was 1-0 with Canada’s Jessie Fleming successful penalty shot in the 75th minute being the game-winner. Canada got the penalty after a video review where the official determined that the U.S.’ Tierna Davidson committed a foul on Canada’s Deanne Rose in the box.

From Fox News:

It will be the first time Canada will compete for a gold medal in women’s soccer. The team did not qualify for the Olympics in 1996, 2000 or 2004. The team finished in eighth place in the 2008 Olympics in Beijing and won bronze in the 2012 and 2016 Olympics.

Canada also made it to the quarterfinals of the 2015 Women’s World Cup and the Round of 16 in the 2019 World Cup and had never finished higher than fourth place in the event.

Canada now faces the winner of Australia-Sweden in the gold-medal match

The U.S. failed to score anything against Canadian goalkeeper Stephanie Labbe. The U.S. had 56% of the possession time and six shots on goal compared to Canada’s 44% of possession time and only two shots on goal.

The U.S. looked shaky during Olympic play. The team lost 3-0 in its opening match to Sweden, beat New Zealand and then tied with Australia to barely make the knockout stage. The U.S. needed penalties to defeat the Netherlands before playing Canada.
