USA Wins Women’s World Cup In Dominant Fashion
The U.S. Women’s soccer team had quite the monkey on their back after two semifinal losses and a shootout final loss in the last three World Cups. That all changed this past weekend when they defeated Japan 5-2 in the World Cup final and once again reigned supreme.
Abby Wambach finally got her trophy, suffering those last three devastating losses without that elusive World Cup title. The 35-year completed her resume with some help from Carli Lloyd, who scored a hat trick on the world’s largest stage. Lloyd won the Golden Ball as player of the tournament and goalkeeper Hope Solo won her second straight Golden Glove as top goalkeeper. Solo had five straight shutouts before the final, tossing aside her controversial selection with an emphatic performance.
After all of the FIFA controversy in the past few weeks, it was nice to transcend corruption at least for a moment to celebrate this momentous occasion. This was a huge victory for the American women, who stamped their passports as the best team in the whole world once again.
