The USA next faces Japan, which upset China 2-0 in another quarterfinal in Qinhuangdao, and will play the rest of the Games in Beijing. The teams met in group play, with Lloyd's goal giving the USA a 1-0 win.

On the other side of the bracket, favorites Brazil and Germany advanced. Brazil beat Norway 2-1 in Tianjin, while Germany needed extra time to see off Sweden 2-0 in Shenyang.

According to Christine Sinclair's blog (here), the entire team is staying through the closing ceremonies. I think they can make an exception for Sophie.
