At 59 minutes in American defender pulls down a rampaging German attacker in the box.
American Gets a yellow card, the German a free shot at goal....

And

German misses!
Luckily cause Solo had guessed the other side and was completely away from the ball. Whew!
68 minutes the cleats are on the other foot, German defender tackles American in the box. German gets a yellow card the American a goal kick

And

SHE SCORES! putting it in the lower right if the net, ANGERER tried but couldn't make the stretch.
American Girls are up one with 22 minutes left.
At 83 minutes American Forward takes a pass across the middle and puts it in!
2-0 U.S.
Canadian Stadium is filled with U.S.A. chants
Germans won't give up, pressing attacks recklessly. Maybe 7 minutes left, Germans lose they're out.
We face the winner of tomorrow's England Japan Match for the winners trophy on Sunday
Game over! USA goes to semi final! Germans are on the first Lufthansa heading East.

USA will face Japan for the winners trophy..
In the Japan England game Japan scored one goal, England scored two..

Wait a minute you're thinking...

England scored on itself, end score Japan 2 England 1
It's happened before but never in a World Cup...
The English defender went to pass it back to her goalie so she could grab the ball.
Goalie missed and the ball went into the net..

The Japanese forward was so confused until the umpire signaled GOAL.

Third place goes to England with its first EVER win over Germany during second overtime period off a penalty kick, I would have loved to seen it. After watching the whole game i wanted to see who had the stamina in overtime... FOX SPORTS switched to a WWE training documentary. Huh? So....well... Just idiotic...

Going for the gold, U.S. Women haven't taken a World Cup since 1999.
Watching history....
--------
At 2:35 minutes into the game the U.S. SCORES! Loyd takes a grounded corner kick from Rapino and smacks it past the Japanese Goalie! Woo hoo!
--------
Holy poop!
At 4:35 the U.S. SCORES FROM A PENALTY KICK! LOYD PUTS IT PAST THE JAPANESE GOALIE AFTER TWO PREVIOUS SHOTS WERE BATTED AWAY BY DEFENDERS
2-0 AMERICA!
--------
Just noticed...
American forwards are Morgan and Loyd..
Wambaugh our best and most experienced is on the bench in reserve.
Solo is in goal.... Napping
Coach went 2-4-4, playing a defensive game against the 3-4-3 offensive orientated Japanese..
13:30 U.S. Secondary Holiday scores a line drive off a quick break pass.
At 15:00 Loyd gets a hat trick! They're scoring faster than I can type!
4-0 U.S. !
--------
That last goal the goalie came out of her box, Loyd sent a long ball from midfield over her head and it rolled into the goal. It's a massacre. Pearl Harbor in reverse..http://www.breitbart.com/video/2015/...from-midfield/
--------
BANZAI!
26:53 Japanese strike back 1v4 in the American box, Japanese forward fights off 4 U.S. defenders and sends a fast ball into the lower right corner just past Solo's fingertips..
1-4 U.S. Winning but not as cocky...
--------
Note: it's a hard played game, but the women are showing great sportsmanship. After a foul the offender is seen helping the fallen player up...great sportsmanship off both teams. The NFL should take notes...

Different Japanese team on the field at half time.
Aggressive, 3-3-4 formation three forwards.

51:00 Japanese force a goal on an overwhelmed Solo
4-2 U.S.

And at 53:00 U.S. Puts one in! Off a corner kick three touches and then a rookie midfielder puts it past the goalie.
5-2 U.S.
Wambaugh still riding the bench(?)
60:00 U.S. Substitution:
Thirty year old Rupino (today's her birthday) out for O'hara (not wambaugh?)
BTW
In case you haven't noticed, this is a great game!
--------
?
70:00 Solo pressed hard on a corner attack with a box full of Japanese forwards leaps and..
Makes a great save!
--------
73:00 another Japanese corner attack batted away by Solo..
--------
75:25 Solo saves a Kamikaze header close in, attacker ran up on a crossing pass but Solo kept her line. whew!
78:00 U.S. SUBSTITUTION:
Wambaugh in for "Hat Trick" Loyd
--------
80:00 Solo punches attack away.
--------
81:00 9 minutes to go 5-2 U.S.
WAMBAUGH FOULED ON RUN!
Penalty kick called for, Japanese player given
First Yellow Card Of The Game.
82:00 nuttin off the PK
--------
Japanese desperate with 7 minutes to go.
It's like Okinawa all over again.
84:00 Another yellow card on a Japanese Forward slamming into an American defender
--------
85:00 last US SUBSTITUTE
RAMPONE THE ROOKIE IN FOR JOHNSTON
--------
(?) 88:00 U.S. On a breakaway has a clear shot at goal... Instead slows the ball (?)
--------
It's plain, the U.S. is going to keep the lead and play a keep away game
--------
92:00 Waiting for the whistle
--------
93:03 the girls are back!

U.s. Wins 5-2 over japan!
--------
U.S. Players... Refreshing
A lot of them wrapping the American flag over their shoulders, two take off on a run around the pitch, the American flag held between them.
Bravo Ladies, Bravo.

Ummm Hope Solo, if you ever get an offer to have your legs shaven by a guy named Rudy,
Give me a call first, I'll have a blade in the razor!
Lol
--------
As to history: after its last winning trophy in 1999 the U.S. Lost to Germany TWICE and then Japan in the next three World Cups...

How satisfying is it to the women that they took Germany down to fight and then beat Japan for the trophy!

Once again
BRAVO!
