Canadian head coach John Herdman is already stirring the pot.

Herdman claims the U.S. Women's National Team uses "highly illegal tactics" on set pieces. He is drawing attention to the physical play of the USA. And that is odd. Why? Because Canada is just as physical as the USWNT.

What Herdman is most likely trying to do is have the referees looking at the action more closely in an attempt to limit the United States' physical advantages. If he gets one extra call because of his statements then they succeeded.

With or without his statements, the match between the USWNT and Canada is going to be good. Two of the best goal scorers in women's soccer history are on the pitch, alongside numerous up and comers.

Here are five players you need to watch today.
