U.S. women to face Canada before Olympics
CHICAGO (AP) -- The United States women's soccer team will play Canada on June 30 in Sandy, Utah, as a final tuneup before heading to the 2012 Olympics in London.
The top-ranked USA recently returned from the Kirin Challenge Cup exhibition tournament in Japan, where it drew 1-1 with the hosts and beat Brazil 3-0.
Before that, the Americans beat Canada in the Olympic qualifying tournament in Vancouver three months ago. The Canadians will also be using the game to prepare for London.
The United States has won the last two Olympic gold medals in women's soccer, and three of the last four.
