The United States women’s volleyball team looks to make its next steps toward a gold medal when it faces Japan on Tuesday in Rio.

WATCH LIVE: USA vs Japan -- 1 p.m. EDT

The Americans went 5-0 to win Pool B, earning them a date with Pool A’s fourth-place side.

That’s Japan, who went 2-3 and lost two more sets than it won in pool play.

The U.S. went to the gold medal game in 2012, where they lost to Brazil.
