The United States are three wins away from winning the World Cup. All that stands in their way now are China, Germany or France and then the final. But before the Americans can look forward to the much-anticipated semifinal that will pit two of the world's top three teams against each other, first they have to take care of China.
This will be the first time that the U.S. and China have met in a World Cup since the final in 1999, which the Americans won on penalty kicks in the most famous women's soccer match of all time. Since then, the Chinese have fallen off the map, failing to qualify for World Cups and generally becoming an afterthought, but they are back with an exceedingly young and talented team that has made their way to the quarterfinals.
The match kicks off at 7:30 p.m. ET at Lansdowne Stadium in Ottawa, where the U.S. has not played in this World Cup. It will be televised in the U.S. on FOX, giving it a primetime network TV spot. As has been the case for U.S. matches all tournament long, J.P. Dellacamera, Tony Dicicco and Cat Whitehill will be on the call. FOX will air a 30-minute pre-game show from Vancouver and while there will not be a post-game show, World Cup Tonight will air at midnight E.T on Fox Sports 1, as always does.
In addition to the English-language TV coverage, NBC Deportes will show the match in Spanish and you can watch it on your computer, tablet or cell phone with the Fox Sports Go app.
