first half did them in, unfortunately. just a single goal would have changed the pace of the game.

Choke job. Disappointing for them. Good for Japan.

What sucks the most almost is that, despite the lack of scoring, we looked better in this game overall than just about every other game this tournament (in which we honestly didn't look that great).

^^^ agree, if they would be up 1-0, they would of had a better gameplan to defend.

SO, anybody else think the play of the game for japan was probably the red card?

the US would have been better off kicking every ball right down the middle. that keeper was going to dive in the direction that the players took their last PK at no matter what.

^^^ I hate to say "play of the game" due to the nature but yes as I said when it happened, it was great from a tactical point of view and I think it saved the game for them. It probably was better than the two weak goals they scored though haha.

Can't wait to see the anime portrayal of the game on japanese comic pages.


The play of the game was Rachael Buehler's assist on Japan's first goal.

Buehler and Boxx were fucking terrible the entire game. I knew Boxx was going to shit the bed on that first shot.

Their second goal was pretty solid.

The first goal was absolute shit. That girl should be shot Colombian style.

Rule #1 of soccer is never to clear the ball into the middle when inside the box...

No idea what she was thinking...take the corner kick and fight to live another day

very proud of the US Womens WC Team! We'll be back come London 2012, and hopefullly Wambach, Rapinoe, Solo, Cheney, and Morgan are all back for the World Cup squad in 2015.

So since they lost does that increase or decrease the odds of one or more of them appearing in Playboy and/or Maxim, FHM?

Not really. She had some shitty balls, but overall played above average (I think she got one of the higher grades in ESPN's post game wrap-up). She's always creating, which means sometimes she plays some bad balls, but she's always trying to push something. And her long ball to Morgan was a thing of beauty.

Hopefully she'll still be going strong for the next World Cup (I think she'll be 30). She was one of the more entertaining players to watch during the tournament.

Just gotta teach Alex Morgan how to dribble, get some good defenders and we'll be fine. As long as Racheal Buehler is off the team it will be addition by subtraction. We would've beat Brazil and Japan with ease if she wasn't on the team. Look at the France game.

She was clearly our worst player of the Cup, (A-Rod perhaps, but she didn't have any colossal fuck ups)

But, I really wouldn't point to the France game to make a point, we were severely outplayed and should have probably lost.

I hate how Lloyd said they lost because the keeper had seen all of their penalty kicks. Is it that hard to kick it the other way?
