Great match, physical too and a brave effort by Canada who led three times only to lose it in the dying seconds of extra time with penalties waiting. Watch it on the BBC Olympics replay section where you can also now just hop from goal to goal also..cool feature.
In the end 5 US finals in a row and years of dominance in the womens game tells a story. Those who stayed away from Old Trafford,.perhaps miffed at GB’s departure certainly missed a treat. In some smaill way too, the odd shaky defence-work aside and our nerves on the night, it puts into perspective our loss to Canada.
