Tokyo Olympics: USWNT vs Canada Prediction
USWNT team has once again shown why they are favourites to win the gold medal in the Tokyo Olympics 2021 and will be determined to take on Canada.
However, they will have to clear another obstacle to reach the finals of the Tokyo Olympics women’s soccer tournament. The likes of Alex Morgan, Megan Rapinoe and Tobin Heath will spearhead the team against Canada.
Meanwhile, Canada's women’s team has been impressive so far and will be poised to face USWNT. Canada has the squad to pull off an upset. However, USWNT looks good on paper and should conquer this game.
