The next opportunity is also risky, but Canada exhales a sigh of relief when Labbe takes it.

At halftime of this Olympic semifinal at sweltering Ibaraki Kashima Stadium, the United States and Canada are locked at 0-0.

Canada seemed to be in command, moving the ball smoothly across midfield and generally controlling the game’s pace. The Americans, on the other hand, were forced to counterattack and never seemed to be a serious scoring danger.

The most significant event of the half was the loss of American goalie Alyssa Naeher, who collapsed to the ground in agony at the 20th minute after falling awkwardly on her right leg and twisting it backward. She remained on the ground for approximately five minutes while attempting to stay in the contest.

She, on the other hand, frowned and gestured toward the sideline after attempting a goal kick a few minutes later. She exited the game in the 30th minute, passing the baton to her backup, Adrianna Franch.

Alyssa Naeher, the hero of her team’s quarterfinal win in the Olympic women’s soccer competition, suffered a knee injury and had to leave the team’s semifinal match against Canada on Monday.

In the 20th minute, Naeher was hurt in an awkward fall while attempting to stop a Canada cross. As Canada’s Nichelle Prince sped by both of them on the challenge, Naeher collided with Julie Ertz and fell with her right leg outstretched. As her foot became caught in the grass, her right knee seemed to bend backward.

Naeher turned over in apparent agony right away, and the game was halted so she could be treated. She was treated by two American trainers for approximately six minutes while lying on her back and then sitting up, before choosing to remain in the game.

But, four minutes later, when the United States earned a goal kick, Naeher took it and, for the first time, exacerbated the injury by swinging her right leg forcefully. She jumped into her landing, realized she couldn’t continue, and quickly motioned to the bench, requesting a replacement.

Adrianna Franch, who had warmed up fast while Naeher was being treated, dashed forward to take her position.

Naeher hobbled off the field by the shortest path available — the end line behind her goal — before round the corner flag and returning to the United States bench.

Naeher looked to be wiping tears away with her yellow jersey by the time she got near enough for her teammates to come out to welcome her.

Naeher had been the only American player to play every minute of the Olympic competition until Monday, but it was her heroics against the Netherlands on Friday, when she made multiple diving saves and stopped a late penalty kick, that demonstrated her true worth.

She made two additional saves in the penalty shootout after a 2-2 draw between the United States and the Netherlands. Her last stop guaranteed the Americans a spot in the semifinals.

She’s done with the game. Franch has entered the fray. That is a significant loss for the United States, which has grown to depend heavily on Naeher.

However, since it was without its two top defenders, Ashley Lawrence and Kadeisha Buchanan, Canada may have been pushed about a little that night. It does today, and it will be much more difficult to get out as a result.

Unlike the US, Canada has yet to lose a game in the Olympic competition. But it hasn’t exactly ripped the bracket apart either.

Canada tied for second place in their first-round group with the United Kingdom (1-1) and Japan (1-1) while defeating China (2-1). It subsequently drew 0-0 with Brazil in the quarterfinals before prevailing 4-3 in a penalty kick shootout.

The US had a more difficult time in what was, in retrospect, a harder group, losing 3-0 to Sweden, 6-1 to New Zealand, and then a 0-0 draw with Australia to finish second in the group. That set up a rematch with the Netherlands in the World Cup final on Friday, which the Americans won on penalties thanks to goalie Alyssa Naeher.

In four games, Canada has only scored four goals. The US has eight, one less than the number of times it has been called back for offside.

On Monday, Janine Beckie of Canada and Abby Dahlkemper of the United States may clash often, but this is nothing new.

Beckie and Dahlkemper are members of Manchester City, an English team that formerly hired Sam Mewis and Rose Lavelle. That is, until Lavelle joined the OL Reign of the National Women’s Soccer League, where she currently plays with Megan Rapinoe and Quinn from Canada.

There’s more, however. Becky Sauerbrunn, Crystal Dunn, Lindsey Horan, and Adrianna Franch, all from the United States, are teammates with Christine Sinclair, the captain of the Portland Thorns. Kailen Sheridan of Canada is a teammate of Carli Lloyd in New Jersey, while Erin McLeod of Canada is a teammate of Alex Morgan in Orlando. At Olympique Lyonnais Féminin, Kadeisha Buchanan is a rising talent. Catarina Macario, on the other hand, is.

It goes on and on.

There are so many links between the players on the American and Canadian teams that it would take a long time to locate a single player from one side who hasn’t played with someone from the other side today — at a college, a club, or in a city.

Even their club teams are in shambles.

In the semifinal, will Kristie and Jane face Nichelle, Chappy, and Sophie?

…We hope everyone has a good time.

That means there will be a lot of friendships formed today on the field, as well as a lot of inside information. Tendencies and preferred movements, as well as triggers.

International soccer is notorious for putting such ties in jeopardy, and today is no exception. Expect handshakes before and after the game, as well as some hard tackles in between.

Nobody wants to go home to the N.W.S.L. and find out they’ve lost the remainder of the season.

The United States has made three changes from the squad that faced the Netherlands in the quarterfinals: Alex Morgan replaces Carli Lloyd up forward, Rose Lavelle replaces Sam Mewis in midfield, and Tierna Davidson replaces Abby Dahlkemper in central defense.

On the surface, the adjustments seem to be part of the team’s rotation during the competition. However, the replacement of Mewis with Lavelle, a much more offensive player, and the restoration of Morgan in a combination with Tobin Heath and Lynn Williams indicates a more forward-thinking style is on the way.

Davidson has also been outstanding in her outings, and she isn’t far behind Dahlkemper, who has had a few shaky moments.

This seems to be a squad that wants to score goals and play aggressively. That’s what the athletes want, and it’s what the fans want. It seems that Coach Vlatko Andonovski likes it as well.

To say the rivalry between Canada and the United States has been one-sided is an understatement. Canada has faced the United States more times than any other opponent — Monday’s Olympic semifinal will be the 62nd meeting between the teams — and to say the rivalry has been one-sided is an understatement.

In the series, the United States has 51 wins. Only three victories have been achieved by Canada. However, any Canadian fan will tell you that the number should be four.

The game in question is the teams’ encounter in the 2012 Olympic semifinals in London, a thrilling 4-3 American win that remains a hallmark moment of grit and persistence for the US even now. Canadians use a distinct language to describe the game, which they won three times. The most frequent word is “robbed.” Others are unprintable in this format.

After the game, Canadian captain Christine Sinclair stated, “We feel like it was stolen from us.” “We believe we have been duped.”

Sinclair, Canada’s best player, was likely to get enraged more than others. In Manchester, England, she scored three times that day, only to have the Americans answer each time and go away with a last-minute winner by Alex Morgan.

The Canadians have been fuming ever since, fueled by some questionable officiating that led to the tying goal and a lingering second-class position in a rivalry that should have ended that day, in their opinion.

In London, the Americans won gold, while Canada took bronze, a feat it duplicated in Rio. It now has a second opportunity to redo that fateful day in 2012. It has already narrowed the gap: since 2011, more than half of the matches have ended in draws or American victories by one goal.

“We were sort of on a hope and a prayer in 2012,” Desiree Scott of Canada remarked on Sunday. “We were hoping to make that game, but now we really believe in ourselves and what we can do on a soccer field, and we think we can make it to the gold medal game.”

That day in 2012 will not need to be recalled to the United States. Morgan, Carli Lloyd, Kelley O’Hara, Tobin Heath, and Megan Rapinoe were among the five Americans that participated, and every member of the team is aware of the threat that Sinclair, a regular in the National Women’s Soccer League, brings to every match.

“We know this is going to be our most difficult game, and we’re preparing for it that way,” US coach Vlatko Andonovski said on Sunday. “This is a semifinal – four of the greatest teams in the world are playing.”

The International Olympic Committee increased the number of alternates allowed for the Games, enabling each team to bring four to Tokyo. The decision was influenced by the pandemic and provided some leeway in the event of a coronavirus breakout in any of the teams.

The IOC, however, established the criteria for who might call oneself an Olympian and be eligible for a medal if their team won one when it made the adjustment. Players who were on an active roster for any game would have that privilege.

During the group stage, the US made a point of honoring its alternatives. When they were on the 18-player squad against New Zealand, Catarina Macario, Jane Campbell, and Casey Krueger cleared the bar, and Lynn Williams did the same against Australia. (Williams has subsequently proven even more important, with a goal and an assist against the Netherlands in the quarterfinals.)

Sweden, Canada, and Brazil (who was knocked out in the quarterfinals) have all used all of their players. All they have to do now is make sure they have a medal to take home.
