Canada beats U.S., will play for Olympic women’s soccer gold


Nine years after heartbreak and controversy at Old Trafford at London 2012, the Canadian women’s soccer team defeated the number-one ranked United States 1-0 in their semifinal on Monday at the Tokyo Games.

The only goal of the match came off the boot of Jessie Fleming of London, Ont., who converted a penalty kick in 74th minute.

Canada now moves on to play in the Olympic gold-medal match for the first time in the country’s history.

More to come.
