  • Semi-Finals

    6.0
    No last minute heroics needed this game as the US advanced to the Finals with a 3-1 score. The US now has the opportunity to became Champion again after losing in the last two tournaments. America is glued to their screen for this World Cup and ESPN has to be loving this. The US started as a dark horse and they have emerged as the favorites to win it all now. Japan has also shocked the world and the key is to not take them lightly.



    The US played a strong game here. France was a dangerous opponent, but their lack of any true scoring presence was evident here tonight.moreless
  • The USA was a bit Fortunate Today

    8.0
    This was an interesting match. The U.S. scored a lovely early goal but France settled into the game quickly and took over in the second part of the first half dominating the play at times. In fact the US managed on one shot on goal the entire half and it went in. Hope Solo on the other hand, was a very busy lady with balls flying all over the place. The French had some terrific chances before scoring a deserved equalizer in the second half.



    For the better part of the game, France was the better team, but America defended very well and the goalkeeping was worlds class. Finally, Abby Wambach came to the rescue with a fine header at 80' and Alex Morgan, who was terrific, added an insurance goal a few minutes later and the U.S. found themselves on their way to their third World Cup Final and first since 1999.



    Whoever they play will have their hands full with this determined, resilient and talented group of ladies.moreless
