The breakthrough came late when the 18-year-old Huitema capped off a pretty passing play involving Ashley Lawrence, Janine Beckie and substitute Deanne Rose, whose cross found an unmarked Huitema in front after a 10-pass Canadian sequence.

Christen Press said it's hard after all the attention that comes in the wake of winning soccer's premier tournament to transition so quickly to preparation for the Olympics.

"I think the way I approach football always, and it's been this way for a while, is just that my job is to strive to be my best when I'm on the field, and that's every training and every game", she said.

"I think this is our expectation, we go into every tournament with the pressure to win", said Christen Press.

When on form, they're too much for nearly any adversary to keep pace with - and Andonovski can always turn to his stacked bench to sustain the carnage, as he did with the introduction of Lindsey Horan on Friday.

Mexico could do little to make an impression as the US controlled possession.

Second-half goals by Lynn Williams, Lindsey Horan and Megan Rapinoe helped the US women's national team win the CONCACAF qualifying tournament for the 2020 Olympics by defeating Canada 3-0 in the final in Carson, California, on Sunday. But this was Canada's closest margin of victory over Costa Rica since 2008. But the Americans were eliminated by Sweden in the quarterfinals four years ago in Brazil for the team's earliest exit in the tournament.

Canada and the USA will meet in Sunday's tournament final in Carson, a game in which nothing more than pride will be at stake. "But against a team like that, you can't give them goals, and we did that tonight". That's the most among men or women. And indeed, the team swept group stage play without conceding a goal.

Adriana Leon, who scored four goals in the opener against St. Kitts and Nevis did not play against Costa Rica. "There was something about the performance (Friday) where you can tell the players definitely brought some nerves on the pitch".

Canada and the United States were favoured to earn the two Olympic qualifying spots in the region and face each other in the final.

The U.S. women have dominated the Olympic qualifying tournament, which features eight teams from North America, Central America and the Caribbean. They picked themselves up after the heartbreaking loss to the United States in 2012 and went on to defeat France 1-0 in the third-place game.

"It's a relief to have qualified, it's definitely a big deal to get to the Olympics", Heiner-Moller said. "We're focusing on right here, right now". Canada failed to qualify for the 2004 Games, beaten by Mexico in qualifying.

Andonovski, former coach of Reign FC of the National Women's Soccer League, is well aware of Press, who now plays for the Utah Royals. The country won its first two matches before falling 2-0 to Canada.

Canada Captain Christine Sinclair, who became the all-time leading global goals scorer during the group stage, went into the match with 186 goals. Substitute Press made it four for U.S. with a deft chipped goal. "And I think before we even talk about the Olympics, we have to talk about our game versus Mexico and qualifying there".
