USA Vs. Canada, 2012 Olympics: Christine Sinclair Puts Canada Back In Front

Once the United States scored to get back level with Canada, the match was supposed to turn decisively in favor of the Americans. Wrong. Christine Sinclair decided that she was basically going to put Canada on her back and carry her country, which she just might do. The Canadian superstar scored her second goal of the match to put Canada back in front, 2-1, and back on the verge of a massive upset of the U.S. in the Olympic semifinals.

Some clever play by Canada got Melissa Tancredi free down the left and she cut back before hitting a cross right back to the middle. That was a great place to hit it because that is where Sinclair was and the striker did what she doest best. She cleared space and headed perfectly into the corner, beating Hope Solo and putting Canada back in front. It was a great bit of finishing and one that has the Canadians back on the front foot.
