Both sides have been playing some fantastic football throughout the tournament as neither of them have had much trouble with any of their opponents so far. Both teams cruised to 3-0 victories in their semifinal matchups, with the USWNT taking down Costa Rica and the Canada WNT topping Jamaica.
USA and Canada have met five times in the W Championship final out of a total 10 tournaments since its inception in 1991. The USWNT have won every single one of those meetings, with the most recent one coming in the 2018 tournament when they defeated Canada with a 2-0 score, thanks to goals from Rose Lavelle and Alex Morgan.
The USWNT will be seeking their ninth W Championship title, while the Canadians are in search of their third. They’re the only two teams to have ever won the tournament.
The winner of the final will qualify for the 2024 Olympics and the 2024 CONCACAF W Gold Cup as well, while the runner-up will head to a CONCACAF Olympic play-off against the team who wins the third place match, which is being played between Jamaica and Costa Rica prior to the final on Monday.
