USWNT vs. Canada time, TV channel, live stream, lineups, and betting odds for CONCACAF W Championship final – Sporting News

Both teams are unblemished through the competition. Both teams are coming off a 3-0 semifinal victory. Both teams are recent championship-winning squads. And now, the USA and Canada women’s national teams meet in the CONCACAF W Championship final with a spot at the 2024 Summer Olympics on the line.
The two North American heavyweights will clash in the continental championship match, with each side looking to hoist the trophy and earn a guaranteed place in the Paris Games. The loser will be relegated to the Olympics playoff match at a later date, requiring 90 more minutes to earn a berth against Jamaica, which claimed third place.
The two squads come into the title bout with very similar narratives. Both teams are looking to usher in a younger generation of talent, but still rely on strikers from the old guard to drive them forward. For the United States, Alex Morgan remains a critical component of the attack, with injuries to Catarina Macario and Ashley Hatch leaving Morgan as the lone reliable option through the middle. Canada’s Jordyn Huitema provides promise for the future, but still has yet to supplant the 39-year-old legend Christine Sinclair as a starter.
The match will be a chance for the U.S. to get revenge for their last meeting, a 1-0 Canada victory in last August’s Olympic semifinal en route to a gold medal at the 2021 Games in Tokyo. Conversely, victory for Canada would see the No. 6-ranked Les Rouges move closer to supplanting No. 1 USA as the dominant team in North America.

USWNT manager Vlatko Andonovski opts for veteran Alyssa Naeher over Casey Murphy, along with two changes at fullback. Emily Fox has emerged from COVID protocol and takes back her left back spot. Kelley O’Hara has played well, but Sofia Huerta gets the start at right back.
Ashley Sanchez, Midge Purce, Megan Rapinoe and Kristie Mewis have made important contributions during the tournament, and they could be asked to be difference-makers off the bench if the USWNT struggles against Canada. 
USWNT starting lineup (4-3-3, left to right): 1-Alyssa Naeher (GK) — 19-Emily Fox, 4-Becky Sauerbrunn, 3-Alana Cook, 8-Sofia Huerta — 10-Lindsey Horan, 17-Andi Sullivan, 16-Rose Lavelle — 9-Mal Pugh, 13-Alex Morgan, 11-Sophia Smith
USWNT subs (12): 18-Casey Murphy (GK), 21-Aubrey Kingsbury (GK), 12-Naomi Girma, 14-Emily Sonnett, 5-Kelley O’Hara, 2-Ashley Sanchez, 22-Kristie Mewis, 24-Sam Coffey, 20-Taylor Kornieck, 15-Megan Rapinoe, 6-Trinity Rodman, 23-Midge Purce
Canada manager Bev Priestman does not veer away from her trusted starting lineup during this tournament. Julia Grosso has made a strong case to be a starter and Adriana Leon was impressive in her sub appearance during the last match; however, Priestman will look to them to be attacking sparks off the bench. Along with Jordyn Huitema, they’re sure to be among the five subs used by Priestman based on recent matches.

In a tournament that has seen wild swings in odds as the USA and Canada expectedly dominated their continental foes, the final produces a real treat. While the United States, as FIFA’s No. 1-ranked team, remains a favorite, the odds correctly suggest that Canada will provide a stiff test.
In fact, the +330 odds probably still don’t quite reflect how evenly these two teams are matched. Yes, the United States will be expected to win, but Canada came out on top a year ago in another high-stakes situation, and now these two teams will duel it out for a trophy.
The 2.5 goal total is in question, with the last two meetings between these teams both ending in a 1-0 scoreline. Neither team has conceded so far in the tournament and the United States women also sit on a whopping 32-match shutout streak for World Cup and Olympic qualifying matches.
