FIFA Women’s World Cup 2015 final: USA vs Japan soccer score, TV schedule, start time, tickets and where to watch live
Will US women’s soccer side have to be content with beong the second best side after Japan. This is a scenario that is scary not just for US women soccer team members but also millions of their fans across the US and beyond.
But this scary scenario is not unprecedented and the US soccer team – obviously women team- has sufferef this fate not very long time ago.
The women’s world cup final in the year 2011 was also played by the same teams and despite playing great soccer Team US was beaten and the trophy was clinched by Japan. Many fans are still fearful of this scenario and will not rest till the Tam US has actually won and taken control of the world cup trophy.
There is no denying the fact that this thought is haunting the US side day and night. U.S. captain Carli Lloyd says “It hurts to think about it and talk about it…But it is what makes you stronger. It is tough, but it builds character. Now there is nothing I want more than the chance to put it right.”
This is definitely a time to take revenge. The same two teams will again square off at Vancouver’s BC Place, 1,449 days after Japan completed an extraordinary victory topped by a last-gasp equalizer and a nerveless penalty-kick shootout.
In the meantime other team members are both excited and anxious. US team veteren Wambach says “As a competitor you know in your heart that all the good stuff, none of it counted…How well we had played, how we had fought back from the brink of defeat in the quarterfinal, all the excitement. We lost. We didn’t finish the job. We weren’t champions.” Now they are determined to erase the ignominy and win the trophy.
