USA Women’s soccer team win World Cup final 5- 3: scores, updates
Full-time: USA 5-2 Japan – USA WIN THE WORLD CUP!
GOOOOOOOOOAL! USA 5-2 Japan (great goal by Heath 53 min)
It is one of the best goals of the tournament indeed.
Did the US just concede from an aerial ball against the much smaller Japanese team, who are weak on set-pieces? Yup, they did. Did they just run up the pitch and score straight away? Yup, they did. Itâ€™s a wicked, inswinging corner that Japan fail to clear. Brian gets it at the far post, pops the ball back to Heath, who slides the ball home from eight yards out. wonderful performance from USA eves indeed.
GOOOOOAL! USA 4-2 Japan (surprize gift, Johnston og 52 min)
Being a great friend USA is gifting a few goals to its long time ally.
Which idiot said Japan had no chance? Johnston, who has been slack in the air this game, goes up to defend a free-kick and flicks the ball past her own keeper.
GOOOOOOOOAL! USA 4-1 Japan (Ogimi)
Finally one goal for Japan. They have made three attempts at goal till now. USA are now playing the ball out of the area with crisp, short passes. They can afford too. Or maybe not. Ogimi gets the ball around 10 yards out, and has plenty of time to turn and shoot past Solo. Told you the comeback started here.
GOOOOOOOAL! 4-0 Japan (Lloyd)
It is nothing short of carnage. Why Japan are playing like an incohrent side. USA has clearly stolen a powerful initiative.
What a goal! Kaihori is way out of her goal, and Lloyd roughly located in Wyoming, sees her off her line and shoots from inside her own half. Kaihori slips as she runs back and the ball sails into the set. Me oh my!
GOOOOOOAL! USA 3-0 Japan (Holiday 13 min)
TThis seems to be disgustin. A club level performance by Japan
Hope Solo looks visibly shocked as she is asked to touch the ball. Itâ€™s an easy one too, which she takes with ease. USA havenâ€™t conceded two goals all tournament, theyâ€™d need to have a horrible game to do so in the next 75 minutes Make that three goals they need to concede! The ball deflects up on the edge of the area and Holiday thrashes a volley past Kaihori.
GOOOOOOOOAL! USA 2-0 Japan (Lloyd again 5 minutes)
Hey guys what Japan
is doing. USA having it so easy here. Lloyd again! Rubbish defending again! Holiday plays the ball in short from a free-kick into the near post. Johnston flicks it on, it deflects off a Japanses defender and Lloys is there to snaffle it up.
GOOOOOOAL! USA 1-0 Japan (Lloyd 3min)
USA seems to be on an offensive from word go.
Rapinoe takes their first of the final and THEY SCORE! No wonder Ellis looked so relaxed. Itâ€™s a simple goal: Rapinoe plays it short into the area and Lloyd runs in to finish. Simple.
Will the team USA avenge the loss of last Womenâ€™s World Cup final played in the year 2011? Four years have passed but after an intensive four week long soccer tournament, the two teams that have reached the final are none other than the teams that played the final in the year 2011.
There is no denying the fact that the team USA will be looking forward to avenge the humiliating loss it suffered at that time. It was Japan that had destroyed the United States women soccer teamâ€™s dreams of winning the World Cup final and now the same team will do everything to do precisely the same and keep the trophy with it.
Will the US team allow this to happen? There are reasons to believe that in the match, the team USA seems to have an upper hand. After making rather disappointing start, the team USA seems to be peaking at the right time. The way they destroyed China in completely one-sided match is enough to convince the doubters. But if that is not sufficient enough to convince the doubters, the 2-0 drubbing that the USWNT received from Japanese eves.
The US womenâ€™s soccer team will leave no stone unturned to win the match. They will be working hard to actually end a four-year search for redemption when it takes on Japan in Sunday’s Women’s World Cup final in Vancouver.
A report while talking about the USA vs Japan world cup 2011 results says â€œThe team’s 2011 final defeat at the hands of the same opponents shocked the football world and still haunts several members of the U.S. squad, including veteran striker Abby Wambach. The 35-year-old, who could earn her 249th cap in Sunday’s showpiece, revealed that the pain of that penalty shoot-out reverse in Frankfurt has driven her ever sinceâ€.
There is no denying the fact that the loss was unbelievable and this is the reason that it still feels that big. While talking about it US top soccer player Wambach says, â€œFor me it has been a constant reminder since July 17, 2011â€¦It has been the thing that has been within us that fuels our fire, motivates us to do that extra sprint, to make that extra flight, to extend and search for that ball whether you are in the box or saving the ball from going in our own net. It’s always there and that is what happens with heartbreak. Heartbreak never goes away, but now we have an opportunityâ€¦And it’s not about revenge or avenging that loss, because this team is different. I feel an air of confidence and we don’t overlook Japan for one second, because they are a very, very organized, good team.â€ There is no denying the fact that the team will be tested and tested badly.
