The U.S. Women’s National Team won its third straight gold medal and fourth gold medal overall at the 2012 London Olympics. The USA went 6-0-0 during the Olympics for the first time, which included a thrilling 4-3 come-from-behind overtime victory in the semifinal against Canada on Aug. 6 and Carli Lloyd’s two-goal performance to lead the U.S. to a 2-1 win against 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup champion Japan in the gold medal match on Aug. 9 in front of more than 80,000 fans at Wembley Stadium.

The USA is 3-0-0 so far on the 10-game Fan Tribute Tour, having defeated Costa Rica 8-0 on Sept. 1 in Rochester, N.Y., before taking a pair of games from Australia by 2-1 and 6-2 scores on Sept. 16 in Carson, Calif., and Sept. 19 in Commerce City, Colo., respectively.
