Japan's Shinobu Ohno, left, and United States' Kelley O'Hara, vie for the ball during the women's soccer gold medal match of the at the 2012 Summer Olympics, Thursday, Aug. It was an eagerly awaited rematch that was only made possible for the Americans by last-second heroics. Powered by two goals from Carli Lloyd and sensational saves by goalie Hope Solo on Thursday, the Americans prevailed 2-1 over Japan – and avenged their heartbreaking World Cup loss to earn a third straight Olympic gold medal. Japan got one goal back on Yuki Ogimi's score in the 63rd minute and nearly got another but for Solo's lunging save of a shot from close range. Here are the TV times of this game and the Japan-Switzerland game that follows on FOX Sports 1. In the most interesting matchup of Group C, Japan and Switzerland are the two teams most likely to come out of this group.


Switzerland was a goal-scoring machine in their qualifying campaign but if they do not possess the ball, they will not be able to create scoring opportunities. Before, during or after today’s matches, join the conversation in the comments section below with fellow soccer fans from around the world.
Beating a dead horse here, I know, but having all games on fake turf has cheapened the value of this tournament.

The Nadeshiko need to play their game and possess the ball while limiting chances for the opposition. The Swiss midfielder is the offensive lynchpin for her team and will be looking to disrupt the Japanese possession in the midfield.
