The smell of medals is now strong. A win in the semi-final secures one of these teams at least a silver medal but very possibly a gold. With so much on the line, what can we expect from the United States Women's National Team as they head into battle against their nearest neighbours, Canada.

The USWNT campaign got off to a sticky start with a humbling 3-0 defeat to Sweden before Vlatko Andonovski's side got back on track with a comprehensive 6-1 win over New Zealand. A 0-0 draw with Australia once again raised question marks of the pre-tournament favourites and that was followed by a nail-biting penalty shootout finish against the Netherlands in the quarter-finals. But they made it.

Canada also needed penalties to overcome Brazil in the quarters after neither side could convert a chance over 120 minutes of play. The victor of this match will progress to the showpiece final where they will go up against either Sweden or Australia.

These two sides have faced each other two previous times in the Olympics, on both occasions the US edging it.
