The U.S. women's soccer team qualified for the 2024 Paris Olympics by beating Canada 1-0 in the CONCACAF women's championship final on July 18, NBC Sports reported.
The final score was the reverse of the Tokyo Olympic semifinal stunner.
Alex Morgan netted her 118th national team goal on a penalty kick in the 78th minute, reprising her match-winning-scorer role from the teams' 2012 Olympic semifinal epic.
The Americans have qualified for every Olympic women's soccer tournament since the first one in Atlanta in 1996. They've won four gold medals, but their two lowest finishes came at the last two Gamesconsisting of a loss in the quarterfinals in Rio and a bronze medal in Tokyo after that semifinal defeat to Canada.
The U.S. also qualified for next year's World Cup and will try for a three-peat in that quadrennial event.
