Tuesday, February 19, 2013
CHICAGO (AP) — The U.S. women’s soccer team has announced it will play an exhibition against Canada at Toronto on June 2.
This will be the first time these teams have met since last year’s Olympic semifinal when the Americans won 4-3 in overtime on Alex Morgan’s stoppage-time goal.
Under new coach Tom Sermanni, the Americans started 2013 with 4-1 and 3-1 victories over Scotland this month.
The U.S. plays Iceland (March 6), China (March 8) and Sweden (March 11) at the annual Algarve Cup in Portugal, then has an exhibition at Germany on April 5.
The match against Canada was announced Tuesday.
