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.”
