2016 Olympics qualifying: Time, TV schedule and live stream for 3rd-place game

Canada needs to win the 3rd-place game in order to keep their hopes alive to get a eventual spot in next summer's olympics

Peter G. Aiken-USA TODAY Sports

Only the top two teams from this tournament are guaranteed a spot in the 2016 Summer Olympics and neither Canada nor the USA will be enjoying that luxury. Now the pressure is on both North-American squads to win the tournament's third-place game that does not guarantee an automatic berth to the RIO 2016 Olympics.

Both teams met during the group stage with the US beating Canada 3-1

The winner of this 3rd-place game will play against Colombia for a berth to the Olympics. Canada needs as much positive momentum as it can get to play a high-level of soccer in a tournament far from the World Cup but big enough for national programs to help their young players develop and live rich experiences.
