Who Won The Women’s World Cup 2011, Japan won the 2011 Women’s World Cup on Sunday, becoming the first Asian nation to win the World Cup. The Japanese team, who always needed the inspiration and emotional support to their fellow citizens at home still recovering from a devastating earthquake and tsunami, recently defeated the U.S. 3-1 in a penalty shootout.
After each game, the team from Japan was a sign that said “For our friends in the world – Thank you for your support.”
The United States, which was considered a favorite to win the cup, made a dramatic rebound after eliminated Brazil in a penalty kick in the quarterfinals, raising hopes that the team can bring home the Cup for the third time.
Team USA dominated much of the final game Sunday in Frankfurt, Germany. Alex Morgan scored the team’s first goal on 69 minutes. However, Japan tied the game when Aya Miyama scored the equalizer 12 minutes later. The Americans took the lead again during the time in the 104th minute when Abby Wambach made goal with a header. However, they played the lead just six minutes to win their third World Cup title when Homare Sawa of Japan scored another tie. U.S. had won the Women’s World Cup in 1991 and 1999.
