The first half of their Olympics 2012 semifinal against Canada has not gone entirely to plan for the United States, who are looking to set up a repeat of the 2011 World Cup final vs. Japan in the gold medal game. So far, however, it looks like it's the Canadians who'll go through. The underdogs have the upper have through Christine Sinclair, who ripped open the USA's defence before finishing emphatically past Hope Solo to make it 1-0 in the 22nd minute.
There have been plenty of chances to equalise, however, with both Abby Wambach and Alex Morgan flashing headers past Erin McLoad's goalposts, but nothing's really happened for the States yet. They did step it up a notch towards the end of the half, with Tobin Heath and Morgan both extremely impressive, but with nothing to show for it you can't imagine that Solo and company will be very happy heading into the break.
