The reigning champions fell behind in the first minute against Japan thanks to Kiko Seige's play. But JD Shaw (21st) and captain Lindsay Horan (77th) converted penalties to cheer the 50,644 crowd in Atlanta.

The second semi-final was decided on penalties after a 1-1 draw after regular time. Tarzian's opening goal from the penalty spot (22') was met by Vanessa Gilles (77') who headed in a free kick cross. The Canadians showed great nerve from the point, with Julia Grosso converting the decisive try.
