Tierna Davidson was called for a foul in the penalty area on Deanne Rose, and Fleming put the penalty kick away for the goal on Adrianna Franch.

Franch was in for US goalie Alyssa Naeher, who was injured in the first half of the game and didn’t come back out for the second.

It was a revenge game for Canada, who fell to the US in a controversial 2012 semifinal match at the London Olympics.

The US will now face the loser of Australia vs. Sweden for the bronze medal Thursday at 4:00 AM.
