The showdown we have all been waiting for!
I believe Jayde Riviere is suspended for this match due to yellow card accumulation.
Lawrence's 100th cap!

Couple of interesting sayings come to mind.

Those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

Insanity is the practice of repeating the same thing with different results.

If we are desire a different outcome, what are we going to do different to bring it about?

I missed the Brazil match because I needed sleep but watched the Group Stage. Nigel is a little conventional and boring but that's his role. 

What do you not like about former #CanWNT player Dr. Clare Rustad?!? I think she's great (and I think that's the majority opinion on this board). Also very friendly in person. http://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clare_Rustad

USA is still the best team in the world, and it's 0-0 at the half. So it's going fine.

But if Canada wants to score a goal and not just hope for penalties they'll need to bring on someone in midfield who is more positive and can pass, instead of Quinn (Scott has been surprisingly good on the ball so far).

I'm not sure what to make of this first half. It's not that we look good; it's more that the USA look much worse than usual.

I agree re: the usa. But we've been good. Tired as the half went on but we looked at our sharpest in the tournament so far. Beckie has to do better on corners but we look a legitimate threat.

Defensively superb, Gilles especially. I take back saying Zadorsky should start, this pairing is more awkward but definitely on much better form

I think we need to attack and score early in the second half

We are playing this half disgustingly badly. They can't make the most basic pass. We have counters we squander over and over again. 

The problem is that this is considered acceptable, when we have so much more to give. Every player on this team could play much better, but they don't seem to be required to show the most basic skill sets. Then you get players sleeping, in a semi final.

Pisses me off, frankly, especially when this US team is nowhere near as dangerous as they've been for decades.

Edit: Labbé is doing her job.
