Well yesterday the USA women’s team played Japan in the final of the FIFA women’s world cup. And they lost.
The game was very exciting as both teams played an outstanding game. The US had many shots on goal in the first half but luck just wouldn’t put the ball into the net.
Each team ended up scoring great goals during the second half which forced the game into overtime at one goal apiece.
And each team scored a great goal in the overtime period which sent the game to penalty kicks.
The USA did horrible during the penalty kick shootout and Japan didn’t which is what gave the game to Japan.
I am not mad or sad about losing the World Cup final to Japan as both teams played a classy game without many fouls. The both played the beautiful game the way it was supposed to be played, and that is how it should be.
The USA women’s team should not be sad either. You had to win a playoff game to just qualify for the World Cup. Then you lost a game to Sweden in the group stage only to bounce back to play the epic game against Brazil. Then you beat a very talented France team to reach the final.
So USA, keep your chins up you will be ok. You have a very talented team and there is still more soccer to play. Next summer is the Olympics (which they have won the last two times) to look forward to. And I also heard that the next women’s World Cup is in Canada, hmm I may have to take myself and the kids up there to see it.
Oh and to the USA goalie Hope Solo, you can come play goalie with me anytime you hot thing you!!!
