2012 London Olympics: United States Women's Soccer Finish Group Play Tuesday

With convincing victories over France and Colombia in its first two matches of the Olympics, the United States women's soccer team is all alone at the top of their four-team grouping in the standings and will finish up play in the group stage on Tuesday against North Korea.

North Korea earned a 2-0 win against Colombia two days prior to the Opening Ceremony, but were blown out 5-0 by France in their second game of the games on Saturday.

With a three-point lead over both France and North Korea in the group standings and a significant lead in the goal differential, only an unlikely devastating, blowout loss to the North Koreans could threaten the US not advancing to the elimination stage of eight teams.

The game is scheduled to start 17:15 London time, which translates to 12:15 p.m. Eastern time, and is scheduled to be televised live on NBC Sports Network as well as NBC's Speciality: Soccer channel.
