Team USA's quest for a third straight Olympic gold medal now heads to the knockout stage, where Pia Sundhage's side will be heavy favorites in Friday's quarterfinal match against New Zealand in Newcastle.

Join editor Kayla Knapp and senior editor Jamie Trecker (via @FOXSoccerTRAX on Twitter) at 9:15 a.m. EST (15 minutes before kickoff) as the United States women's national team look to carry their momentum from the group stage.

With a potential semifinal match against Team Great Britain or Canada on the line, the Americans will rely on forwards Abby Wambach and Alex Morgan to exploit New Zealand's stingy defense and move one step closer to erase last year's World Cup disappointment.
