In our match preview informing you where and how to watch the Concacaf Women’s Olympic Qualifying final between Canada and the USWNT, we compare tournament statistics, analyze the team’s head-to-head record and look at players to watch.

Canada and the USWNT meet at a Concacaf Women's Olympic Qualifiers final for the fourth time since the competition's conception in 2004. In fact, no other team in the conference has advanced to the Olympic Games since 2008. And history will keep turning as we brace ourselves for what could be one of the most exhilarating CWOQ finals of our time.

The two-time Bronze medalist Canada arrived at this competition with a healthy mixture of young talent and experience in its squad. Of course, the team has been led by Christine Sinclair, who is now the world's international top goalscorer after bagging in two goals in Canada's opening match. The feat was not only celebrated by Canadians but hailed by football fans from all around the world. This positive energy has been added to the national team's talent, determination and physical ability making them look seemingly unstoppable on the pitch. 

On the other hand, the United States Women's National Team has been doing what it does best, win, under new coach Vlatko Andonovski. Despite a slow start against the Haitians, the Americans have adjusted themselves and played the lusty soccer that is expected from them. Winning that match against Haiti 4-0, the Stars and Stripes kept their engines running outscoring its following three opponents 18-0. Now, after seeing his players perform throughout the tournament, it is up to Andonovski to summon the best possible squad to face a Canada team that seems as powerful as the host nation.

Canada vs USWNT: tournament stats

The neighboring nations head to this match having scored a total of 45 goals. The USWNT fell short on goals to the Canadians at this point of the tournament for the first time in history.

Canada's 23 goals were led by 18-year-old Jordyn Huitema who sits on top of the goalscoring chart with seven goals in the tournament. The remaining 16 goals were shared amongst eight other Canadians – Adriana Leon (4), Christine Sinclair (3), Janine Becky (3), Ashley Lawrence (2), Jayde Riviere (1), Jessie Fleming (1), Riviere (1), Deanne Rose (1) and Shelina Zadorsky (1).

Eight Americans have placed the ball in the back of the net for the Stars and Stripes with Christen Press and Lindsey Horan leading the way with five each. Samantha Mewis has four, Rose Lavelle, Lynn Williams and Jessica McDonald have two each, and both Tobin Heath and Carli Lloyd have one.

Both nations still have a chance to finish this tournament without conceding a single goal. 

Canada vs USWNT: Head-to-head

The all-time series between these two North American nations dating back to a Concacaf Women's World Cup Qualifier on April 27, 1991, is at 21-2-0 in favor of the Americans.

The USWNT has never lost a Concacaf Women's Olympic Qualifier and has only drawn once and it was against Canada in the 2008 final won by the U.S. on penalties. Nevertheless, the U.S. has dominated Canada in the last decade outscoring them 23-7 since 2010.

The Canadians shouldn't dwell in the past, but it is always good to remember those negative memories and turn them iNto positives in the present.

Players to watch

Jordyn Huitema – Canada 

Canadians and women's football fans need to be aware of the importance of this tournament. Christine Sinclair's prodigy, Jordyn Huitema, has lived up to or exceeded expectations in this CWOQ tournament. Sinclair, 36, is approaching retirement and in this is the beginning of her handing over the baton to the 18-year-old striker. Averaging a goal every 38 minutes, Huitema is looking to carry on following the footsteps of the world's all-time top goalscorer. No matter what the score is on Sunday, Tokyo 2020 better be prepared for Canada's national team and this striker duo.

Christen Press – USWNT

I was in complete disbelief when Press was not in Andonovski's starting lineup ahead of the semifinal match against Costa Rica. Press is the only American to score in each of the four games including one in the semifinal where she only featured for 22 minutes. She averages a goal every 41 minutes, better than any other player in her roster. Press should be the No. 1 winger choice without a doubt ahead of this upcoming final.
