NBC will broadcast a “friendly” game between the U.S. Women’s National team and the Canadian National team this Saturday at 1:30 p.m. ET, live from Salt Lake City, Utah. For Team USA, this is their final tune-up prior to the 2012 London Olympics.

The NBC Sports Group’s lead soccer commentary team of Arlo White (@arlowhite, play-by-play), and Kyle Martino (@kylemartino, “Between the Benches” analyst) who will call the USA-Canada game while Russ Thaler (@RussThaler) will host the pre-game, halftime and post-game segments on-site.

WHITE ON THE USA TEAM: “The U.S. Women’s National team could be one of the great stories of this Olympic summer. They captured the hearts of a nation during last years’ World Cup, and there is a very good chance that they could go one better in London and claim the gold medal.”

MARTINO ON THE MATCH: “Last dress rehearsal for the U.S. Women before the big show. Their recent performances would suggest they are ready so this game against Canada will be a chance for the fans to see them in top gear one last time before they cross the pond.”
