The American women's soccer team won all three games in pool play for the first time in Olympic history. Now they move on to the elimination round brimming with confidence.
The United States starts with New Zealand on Friday.
"This is when the tournament starts," U.S. midfielder Lauren Cheney says. "It's the knockout stage. There's no mess-ups in this."
If the Americans win, they will play the Britain-Canada winner in the semifinals.
