VANCOUVER, British Columbia —Many were hoping that the team USA will win the match against a hapless Nigeria with a huge margin. But the US women’s team seems to have done everything to ensure that it doesn’t win the match easily. All their matches have been more difficult that you could have imagined.

Beginning with their first match against Australia to the last match against Nigeria, the team has toiled to win matches it was expected to win without much of an effort. Nonetheless what matters is the end result and with the latest win over Nigeria, the team USA has ensured not just a birth in the knockout stage, but also topped the Group.

But the credit for the win must go to none other than Wambach who scored the solitary goal giving the United States 1-0 win in the FIFA World Cup 2015 soccer tournament. Now the win actually send the sends the United States to Edmonton, Alberta, for the opening match of the knockout stage against an undetermined world cup women team USA

To be fair, till now Wambach’s performance was not above par. She didn’t score a single won prior to the last night’s match. It was Wambach’s first goal in Canada and her 14th overall in a World Cup, pulling her even with Birgit Prinz for second on the all-time list behind Brazil’s Marta, who has 15.

After winning the match for her team a very excited Wambach said, ‘‘Getting that goal right before the half was big for us…Not taking too many injuries is also positive, and going out first in our group was absolutely what we set out to do.’’

The United States’ women’s soccer team, unlike the men’s team is one of the best and holds Olympic title. Ranked second in the world behind Germany, the team has two World Cup titles, but hasn’t won since 1999. Four years ago in Germany, the US advanced to the final but fell to Japan on penalty kicks. Now the team is expected to win the title.
