Concacaf Football

The legendary Maracana in Rio was also the setting for the USA’s 5-0 defeat to hosts Brazil in the final of the 2007 Pan American Games women’s football tournament on 26 July. The stars & stripes earn only their second-ever medal in the games since taking gold in 1999. In an earlier encounter on 26 July, Canada posted a 2-1 triumph over Mexico to clinch the bronze medal.
