The United States women's soccer team continues their push for a third straight Olympic Gold Medal with Saturday's match against Colombia. Kickoff is at 9 a.m. Pacific and the game is on NBC Sports Network.

The U.S. is coming off an impressive win over France in their first group stage game, scoring a 4-2 win after falling behind 2-0. Colombia is coming off a 2-0 loss to North Korea in their opener. A win from the U.S. would all but clinch their spot in the knockout round, while a Colombia loss would eliminate them.

Sounders Women Hope Solo, Alex Morgan and Megan Rapinoe are among the starters for this game, with Sydney Leroux starting off on the bench. Morgan is coming off a two-goal game against France.

U.S. starters (4-3-3): Solo; Heather Mitts, Christine Rampone, Kelly O'Hara, Rachel Buehler; Heather O'Reilly, Carli Lloyd, Rapinoe; Lauren Cheney, Morgan, Abby Wambach.

Colombia starters (4-3-3): Sepulveda; Gaitan, Arias, Dominguez, Peduzine; Ariza, Rodallega, Usme; Velasquez, Vidal, Andrade
