Usa Vs Japan SoccerUsa Vs Japan Soccer, Match Women’s World Cup final between the USA Women’s National Team and Japan is headed for the extension, football’s answer to overtime. Here is a quick overview of the “overtime” rules:

After 90 minutes, if the score is tied, play will continue in two periods of 15 minutes of extra time. No golden goal during these periods, which means that even if a team scores, play continues until the end of the second 15 minutes of extra time period. The USWNT is no stranger to return in overtime, against Brazil, U.S. fell behind 2-1 in extra time after a goal from Marta, and then tied the 122nd minute head Abby Wambach, the ultimate goal in the history of the Women’s World Cup.

If the score is tied after two periods of extra time, play continues with kicks. The teams will alternate every five attempts from the penalty spot; the team with more goals wins through five kicks. If teams are tied after five attempts each, the game continues with a penalty kick rounds each. U.S. won his quarterfinal match against Brazil on penalties and won the 1999 Women’s World Cup on penalties after a goalless draw against Japan.
