A lot of firsts in this one. Canada taking the gold for the first time ever in any soccer major tournament.🥂. First ever penalty shootout in the gold medal match. Canada goalie Stephanie Labbe the hero in the shootout with 2 saves turning herself to heroine after being the villain that let in Stina Blackstenius goal for Sweden. Jessie Fleming making it 1-1 with her second spot kick in as many matches. Canada showed that you don’t need to be overly great attacking wise in a knockout competition, but you can be good in defense hold on until penalties. Lady luck might smile on you and that is what happened as Sweden skied their fifth and winning spot kick in the shootout to swing the balance back to the Canadians.
