USA Jr Women's Head Coach Craig Rot on tonight's match: "Canada is a familiar foe, as they were in Chicago for a joint training camp and tournament with us a few weeks before the pandemic shut the world down. We’ve had a great training camp in Mexico City, and now it’s time to do the real work of winning games and championships. Today that journey begins."
