Where to watch the USWNT on their path to Olympic gold

RELATED: USWNT goes for Olympic gold vs. Japan in World Cup rematch

Soccer News of the Week –

The United States women’s soccer team look stronger than ever as they head into the Olympic Quarterfinals. They made it through the Group Stage undefeated – three dominant displays to gain three Ws.

Goalkeeper Hope Solo allowed two goals in the team’s opening game against France, but kept Colombia and North Korea firmly shut out of the net. Except for those early minutes in the first game, the USWNT’s lackluster defense was rarely troubled. Not with the collective offensive prowess of Abby Wambach, 23-year old Alex Morgan, Carli Lloyd and Megan Rapinoe controlling the game.

Next up for the American ladies as they go for gold is a Quarterfinal match against New Zealand on Friday, August 3, at 9:30 a.m. on NBC Sports Network.
