US Women Friendly vs Canada Game Thread

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

The US Women begin their ramp-up to the 2015 World Cup with a neighborly match against Canada.

In the first USWNT game of the year and the first senior national team action of 2014 (beating the US Men friendly vs Korea by a day), we take on a team that would be bitter rivals if it were possible for Canadians to be bitter about anything. Our northern neighbors will no doubt still be chafing from the 2012 Olympic semifinal in which the US benefitted from a rare call against Canadian keeper McLeod for holding the ball too long, which led to an indirect free kick, which led to a handball, which led to a penalty, which allowed the US to tie the game and then win it in injury time of the second overtime.

It's an NWSL-heavy match, as you'd expect. 22 of the 24 US players are in the league — with the only exceptions being collegiate players Morgan Brian and Sam Mewis — as are 11 of the 19 Canadian players. That list includes a full five Seattle Reign players: Hope Solo, Stephanie Cox, Megan Rapinoe, and Sydney Leroux for the US and defender Carmelina Moscato for Canada.

Kickoff is at 6pm Pacific from Dallas and the game will be broadcast on Fox Sports 1.
