Despite the best efforts of the referee, Canada takes the game to overtime tied 3-3 against the US.

You're like the Canadian coach, already preparing the excuses? :lol:

If the USA loses, it's because Canada played an amazing game.

Yeah, Canada is playing a great game, I just can't say the same about the referee, two bad calls at least, giving the US two corner kicks, never mind the delay of game call......

I didn't think I could see a game that topped Algeria in the last Men's World Cup or against Brazil in the last Women's World Cup, but this did indeed top.

Probably the best soccer game I've ever seen.

That referee should be shot. That was the main contributor to Canada losing, the smaller factor being Canada blowing the lead repeatedly after gaining it. Christine Sinclair did everything she could do in that game. The others should have stepped up as well, but they didn't.

I'm getting really disappointed at the 'Canada Falls Short' headline this Olympics. Why can't we have shiny gold medals aplenty?

I hate ragging on the officials in any sport, but the "delay of game" call in the 76th minute was a crock of shit considering the importance of this game, Canada had the lead 3-2 but was scored on directly because of the poor call and resulting penalty kick. Full marks to both teams for a great, well played game. Canada will now play France for the Bronze.....

GO CANADA!!

That ref was terrible. She'd be right at home in the MLS.

A small consolation. Bronze is that "Hey you weren't good enough to compete for gold or silver so here's your consolation prize" kind of medal. I'm sick of our athletes always ending up going for bronze.

Whatever happened to the 'Own the Podium' thing that helped bring Gold in the winter Olympics?

We need some kind of spark.

The upside of this is that you can expect most of the French team to surrender while some of them can be counted on to start kicking the ball into their own goal for you. :lol:
