Abby Dahlkemper is an Olympic medalist as she will return to Manchester with an Olympic bronze medal, as the United States defeated Australia 4-3 in the third-place match.

Former City star Carli Lloyd smashed home a brace in as Megan Rapinoe also netted twice, while Sam Kerr, Caitlin Foord and Emily Gielnik were on target for the Matildas in a seven-goal spectacular match.

Dahlkemper was an unused substitute, while former Blues Lloyd, Sam Mewis and Rose Lavelle all featured to help the Stars and Stripes to clinch their sixth medal of seven at the Olympic Games.

It was a bit bitter sweet as the USWNT were odds on favorites for the Gold and go home placing third.

Still, medaling is hugely important. Congratulations to Abby, past Blues and the USWNT.
