 Both the United States and Mexico will be looking to punch their ticket to the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo when they meet in the semifinals of the 2020 Concacaf Women’s Olympic Qualifying Championship on Friday night at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California.

The U.S. could not have asked for a better group stage campaign, with three wins in three matches, 18 goals scored and no goals allowed.

Eight different players have found the back of the net for the reigning FIFA Women’s World Cup champions, including Lindsey Horan with five goals and Christen Press with four scores.

Mexico had a strong performance in the group stage as well, posting a 2W-1L record thanks in large part to the three goals scored by Renae Cuellar.

Also standing out for El Tricolor is defensive midfielder Rebeca Bernal, who has helped limit Mexico’s opponents to just two goals.

There have been five previous CWOQ meetings between these two sides, including a memorable group stage affair in 2016 when Mexico went toe-to-toe with the U.S. before narrowly falling 1-0.
