It has been a rough tournament for the Americans, who are going to come up short of a gold medal in back-to-back Summer Olympics. This generation of stars has accomplished so much over the last decade, but this competition signaled the end might be near for stars Carli Lloyd, Alex Morgan and Megan Rapinoe. Can USA get one more signature performance from the trio before changes take place?
Australia played USA to a 0-0 draw in the group stage and will feel confident heading into this match. Sam Kerr, who plays in the NWSL, is one to watch for the Aussies. Alanna Kennedy is another important piece for Australia, who is going to record its highest finish ever at an Olympics regardless of the result.
