Game Analysis: United States vs Canada (Mar 6, 2024)

In a thrilling match at Snapdragon Stadium in San Diego, goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher was the hero for the United States as they defeated Canada in a penalty shootout to advance to the Concacaf W Gold Cup final. Naeher saved three penalty attempts and even scored one herself, solidifying her reputation as one of the best goalkeepers in the world.

The heavy rain in San Diego added to the drama of the match, making play challenging for both teams. Despite the difficult conditions, forward Jaedyn Shaw made history by becoming the first U.S. player to score in each of her first four starts. Her impressive performance helped the USWNT improve their knockout record against Canada to 12-1-1.

The U.S. will now face Brazil in the final after the Brazilian team secured a victory over Mexico. The win denied the U.S. a revenge match against Mexico after an earlier upset in the tournament. Canada, on the other hand, faced their first major tournament without retired captain Christine Sinclair, and despite their strong performance, they were unable to overcome the U.S. in the shootout.

Interim coach Twila Kilgore’s team showed resilience and determination as they bounced back from a loss to Mexico with a hard-fought victory over Colombia. The stage is now set for an exciting final between the U.S. and Brazil, with both teams eager to claim the Concacaf W Gold Cup title.
