U.S. Player Ratings:
RATINGS PLAYER (TEAM), GP/G
5 Hope Solo (Seattle Reign) 190/0.
Made save on Tancredi at near post to preserve her 95th international shutout. Otherwise, had little to do.
5 Kelley O'Hara (Sky Blue FC). 73/2.
Dangerous cross forced corner in 36th minute, but she otherwise had quiet game at right back, where she was again starting in place of Ali Krieger.
6 Becky Sauerbrunn (FC Kansas City), 100/0.
Set up opening goal by Horan with a great ball into area. Had another good pass a minute earlier off another Canadian clearance that forced corner kick off which Horan then scored.
5 Julie Johnston (Chicago Stars), 30/5.
Like Sauerbrunn, forced to do a lot of playmaking out of back but struggled under Canadian pressure until game opened up after U.S. goals.
5 Meghan Klingenberg (Portland Timbers), 56/3.
Most effective of the defenders with the most room to move forward.
6 Morgan Brian (Houston Dash), 48/4.
Did lots of good work playmaking in midfield but had little to show for it.
7 Lindsey Horan (Portland Timbers), 11/2.
Made perfect run to meet Sauerbrunn's ball into the area for the winning goal on a header. Also a huge presence in midfield with her size and vision.
7 Tobin Heath (Portland Timbers), 111/14.
Scored insurance goal, hitting perfectly placed shot with left foot inside near post. Unlucky not to add second goal when Allysha Chapman cleared her shot off line.
4 Carli Lloyd (Houston Dash), 217/86.
Should have done better on Klingenberg's cross in 22nd minute. Missed sitter in the 90th minute when she touched O'Hara's cross wide of the goal. Canadians marked her closely and frustrated her.
7 Mallory Pugh (Real Colorado), 6/1.
Set up USA's second goal with great run and pass back across the area to Heath. Another great run could have led to another Heath goal. Showed pace -- and touch -- to keep ball in and sustain U.S. pressure late in first half and almost earned penalty in second half. Fouled near corner flag just before USA opened scoring.
4 Alex Morgan (Orlando Dash), 105/62.
As lone forward, needed to see ball more. Did little when she got it.
RATINGS PLAYER (TEAM), GP/G
4 Christen Press (Chicago Red Stars), 61/31.
Replaced Morgan up front but could not add to U.S. lead.
NR Crystal Dunn (Washington Spirit), 26/10.
Tournament's Golden Ball winner (six goals) was late sub for Horan.
NR Emily Sonnett (Portland Timbers). 7/0.
Came on for Pugh in 90th minute.
TRIVIA. The USA is unbeaten in Olympic qualifying with a 18-0-1 record. Its only tie came in 2008 when it tied Canada, 1-1, in the title game before prevailing in penalty kicks.
