After two Olympic victories, the U.S. women's national team aims to make it a Group G sweep in its match against North Korea at Old Trafford in Manchester, England (12:15 p.m., NBC Sports Network, stream on NBCOlympics.com).

The Americans have combined for seven goals in victories over France and Colombia, but much of the focus has shifted to goalkeeper Hope Solo and her pointed tweets at former U.S. standout and current television analyst Brandi Chastain.

The United States will be facing a team playing for its survival, as North Korea is currently tied with France for second place in the group on three points. North Korea can still qualify for the knockout stage as a third-place qualifier, but Canada and New Zealand are also in contention for third-place berths, meaning North Korea would need at least a point to be safe.
