The Olympic woman’s soccer semifinal yesterday was a tense battle between the U.S. and Canada that ended with an American goal by Alex Morgan in the last minute of extra time.

The University of Portland’s strong soccer program was well represented on both sides of the field. The game pitted ‘08 alumni Megan Rapinoe on the American team against ‘06 alumni Christine Sinclair on the Canadian team. The two former Pilots scored the first five goals of the game. The two played together during the Pilots’ 2005 NCAA National Championship season where they went 23-0-2. We’ll talk to their coach and former teammate about the game yesterday, and what to expect in the coming medal matches on Thursday.

What questions do you have about the Canadian and American soccer stars, Megan Rapinoe and Christine Sinclair?
