U.S. women's soccer team faces Canada at Coliseum in July

"Red, white and blue soccer will be part of Nashville's Fourth of July weekend as the U.S. Women's National Team will play Canada at the Coliseum in preparation for the Summer Olympic Games in Greece."

"The match is scheduled to kickoff at 7 p.m. July 3 and will be broadcast nationally by ESPN, officials with U.S. Soccer and the Titans, who operate the Coliseum, confirmed last night."

"The match will be the fourth in a six-game schedule in the United States to prepare the team for the Olympics. The soccer games in Greece begin Aug. 12."

"[A] key member of the team, Cindy Parlow, is from Memphis and was the Tennessee High School Player of the Year in 1994 for Germantown. Now 25, she is the youngest woman in soccer history to play on a national team that won both an Olympic Gold Medal and a Women's World Cup."
