[USA WOMEN] Sunday's women's game between the USA and Canada in Toronto (ESPNews, 4:30 pm ET) will conclude U.S. Soccer's 100th anniversary weekend. The much-anticipated rematch between the USA and Canada of their 2012 Olympic semifinal match has long since been sold out at BMO Field. It will feature the world's top two active scorers in Abby Wambach, whose 155 career goals are only three behind Mia Hamm's record, and Canadian striker Christine Sinclair, who 145 goals included a hat trick when Canada faced the USA in the Olympic semifinals.

The USA is 6-0-2 in 2013 under new coach Tom Sermanni and hasn't lost in its last 31 games (26 wins and five ties) dating back to March 2012.

The USA has not lost to the Canadians since March 2001 and has never lost to them in Canada (five wins and one tie).

-- Canada called up former U.S. U-20 Rachel Quon, but the Chicago Red Stars left back is ineligible since she has not yet been cleared by FIFA to switch allegiances.
