After 20 years – 7,449 days to be precise – the Canadian women‘s soccer team had a surprising victory over the United States.

It is only Canada’s fourth win against the United States in 62 encounters and it came nine years after their controversial semi-final defeat by the Americans in London in 2012.

After two consecutive Olympic bronze medals, Canada is playing for a gold medal for the first time in the country’s history.

After the historic victory, the Canadian women rejoiced.

The difference in the semi-finals for Canada on Monday was Jessie Fleming’s 74th-minute penalty.

Despite a late night or early wake-up call for numerous Canadians from coast to coast, fans, experts and those involved in the program reveled in excitement.

The Canadian women will play Sweden in the final in Japan on Friday morning at 11 a.m. – or Thursday at 10 p.m. ET.
