Women's World Cup quarterfinal games on Saturday:
JAPAN VS. AUSTRALIA
Where: Edmonton. Time: 1 p.m. PDT. TV: FS1, Telemundo.
The buzz: Japan, the defending World Cup champion, has been all but flawless defensively with its three-keeper rotation allowing just two scores — and the second was a fluke goal in stoppage time in its round of 16 win over the Netherlands. Offensively, however, Japan has played just well enough to win, beating the Dutch on Mizuho Sakaguchi's second-half goal, arguably the prettiest one of the tournament. Japan was one of only two teams to emerge from group play unbeaten and untied but that won't intimidate Australia. The Aussies took down the other perfect team, Brazil, 1-0, in its last game.
CANADA VS. ENGLAND
Where: Vancouver. Time: 4:30 p.m. TV: FS1.
