[CANADA-USA] The U.S. women's national team heads to Winnipeg's Investors Group Field, one of the six venues for next year's Women's World Cup, to face Canada in its second match under interim head coach Jill Ellis (live on ESPN3 and espnW.com at 8 p.m. ET). An announcement on a permanent replacement for Tom Sermanni is expected before the next U.S. matches in June against France.

A crowd of more than 25,000 fans is expected for the match, the 54th in the series. The USA holds a 47-3-5 all-time record against Canada, a team it has faced more times than any country in the world.
