Canada's midfielder Desiree Scott reacts as the US team celebrates after the London 2012 Olympic Games women's semi final football match between the US and Canada

It was one of the most exciting football games in the history of the Olympics.

Our image of the day captures a rightfully sorrowful Canadian player’s face after a heartbreaking loss to the USA.

The United States advanced to the final of the Olympic women’s football tournament on Monday, August 6 after an Alex Morgan goal in the last minute of extra-time clinched a dramatic 4-3 victory over Canada.

In one of the most extraordinary matches in the history of the tournament, the American women came from behind three times to level at 3-3 in 90 minutes before Morgan’s 120th-minute clincher at Old Trafford.

Canada — who had taken the lead three times thanks to a magnificent hat-trick from captain and striker Christine Sinclair — were left shattered by the agonizing nature of the loss.
