U.S. Women Reach World Cup Final

By Wyatt Earp | July 13, 2011

And they beat a very to get there.

The United States is in the World Cup final for the first time since it last won the title in 1999, and once again Abby Wambach came up big for these Americans, scoring in a 3-1 victory over France on Wednesday.

Wambach broke a tense tie with a monstrous header off Lauren Cheney’s corner kick in the 79th minute. Cheney delivered the ball perfectly to the far post, and Wambach jumped over the scrum and pushed the ball past French goalkeeper Berangere Sapowicz. It was Wambach’s third goal of the tournament and 12th of her career, tying her with fellow American Michelle Akers for third on the all-time World Cup scoring list.

I’ll be watching Sunday, if only to see more of the yummy Hope Solo.

    Sully – I have been completely negligent in posting about the Women’s World Cup, to my shame. I’ve seen parts of every game, but keep forgetting to post – : a game compared by most sports gurus as the equivalent to the Miracle on Ice.

    And this is one of I have ever seen.

    I agree. Hope does have some hotness, but I think I would take Alex Morgan.

    Dude… not only is it Soccer, it’s WOMEN’S Soccer. Stop already.

    (Actually we always watch the World Cup).

    What’s next a WNBA post? Snark added. ;)

    Old NFO – Good for US. (The U.S., that is!)

    Robert – This Alex Morgan? Yeah, she’s smokin’.

    Captain – Oh yeah, I forgot; you don’t like hot chicks. And how ironic is it of you to snark about one of my posts. I remember when you used to post on your blog . . . Those were the days. Ba-zing!
