The United States women are on to the World Cup final after knocking off a stubborn French side 3-1 in Moenchengladbach, Germany, Wednesday afternoon.
After a narrow escape against Brazil Sunday, the U.S. women again found themselves in a tight contest. The French were frankly better in just about every facet of the match. They produced 25 shots to the United States’ 11, kept the ball better than the U.S. and looked set to take command of the match after erasing the Americans’ one-goal lead mere minutes into the second half.
But American striker Abby Wambach was in the mood for an encore to her heroic header on Sunday and once again nodded a monster goal into the net to give her team a 2-1 edge with 11 minutes to play. A cool finish from substitute Alex Morgan three minutes later sealed the match for the Americans who move on to soccer’s grand finale on Sunday, July 17.
The United States will play the winner of Sweden-Japan at 1:45 p.m. Sunday. Stay tuned to VoxTalk this week to learn where the best watch parties in town will be taking place.
