[USA-CANADA WOMEN] U.S. women’s national team coach Pia Sundhage switched seven starters from the team that lost to Sweden on Friday and got the desired effect as it beat Concacaf rival Canada, 2-1, on second-half goals by Lauren Cheney and Lindsay Tarpley at the Four Nations Tournament in Chongqing, China.
 
“You have to look at two things from the game, attitude over 90 minutes, which we emphasize d after the Sweden game, and I think we brought that to this game, but also smartness,” said Sundhage. “We kept possession with our two center midfielders. Carli Lloyd and Lori Lindsey did a good job at times and eventually we created chances and eventually we put them away as well.”

The match marked the first career starts for defender Brittany Taylor and midfielder Kelley O’Hara, both WPS rookies, and University of California forward Alex Morgan, who earned their second, fourth and 10th caps, respectively. Defender Becky Sauerbrunn earned just her fourth cap and made her first start since she debuted at the Four Nations Tournament in 2008. University of North Carolina midfielder Meghan Klingenberg earned her first career cap when she entered the match in the 78th minute for O’Hara.

China's 2-1 win over Sweden left all four teams tied with one win and one loss apiece heading into Tuesday's final matches. China and Canada have the edge in the tiebreaker with four goals scored.
