Goal in the first few minutes and one in the final minutes and then the shootout.

I personally hate shootouts but what a dramatic ending

Wambach is a beast

that was insane, 55 minutes playing with 10, bad calls, sh1t ref, any other team would have buckled.
we can't lose to france..ever, in anything, & i want to beat the swedes in the revenge to win the cup.

marta is a beast tho, she should be playing with the boys.

I also enjoyed the "schadenfruede smile" on the face of Birgit Prinz after the Germans exited the tournament.

Very quick shot of her shaking hands with a Japanese opponent at the end of the match. She was the only German player that managed a hint of a smile. To anyone not familiar with the circumstances, you would draw the conclusion that she was simply "gracious in defeat".

Agreed, but, after the way Japan handled Germany, Swedes will have their hands full!

uh ya, we all enjoyed how brazil took the dive to slow it up at the end.
as much as the american girls & others have worked their butts off to try to legitmize this sport over the past 20 yrs, teams like brazil set the sport back decades.
my italian friends tell me its part of the sport, but i know better. fifa is a joke for allowing the mens melodramatics to invade the womens game.

Y'know, whenever a player has to be stretchered off the field, and then immediately jumps off the stretcher and literally runs off, it does somewhat damage the credibility, doesn't it? I mean, c'mon...even a 9-year-old who gets thrown out at second base knows enough to at least come up limping!

So often we see tactics like this actually work, but it's poetic justice in this situation that the USA goal was scored during the stoppage time created by Erica. The US coach was right, you couldn't write a better script. What a game!
