Japanese women’s team beat the U.S. soccer 3-1 in penalty kicks to take the title of FIFA Women’s World Cup, after being tied the game in overtime 2-2. The Japanese team won the shoot-through performance of their goalkeeper saving Kaihori to save two shots from the United States.
It was a night of patience for the Japanese team when they beat in the first 80 minutes of the game until they found a way to slow down the U.S. team. The game went to overtime, but eventually ended in a shootout. Japan scored Miyama, Sagakuchi and Kumagai to seal the game. While the U.S. score in the shootout came only from Wambach.
With determination, Wambach routine with a header at the near post after a good cross from the left scored the second goal for the United States in overtime. Wamback have missed those kicks in regulation, but eventually sneaked through the weak defense of Japan. In tiredness in the body language of the U.S. players still managed to play with courage against the tight defense of the Japanese team.
Alex Morgan fired the first goal in the 69th minute giving them a comfortable advantage of knowing the rigorous defense they use to overthrow Japan. However, the U.S. made a mistake in a dangerous cross that was not cleared properly. Miyama stabs the ball and tied the game 1-1.
Wambach scored in the 102th minute of extra time to make the score 2-1. It seemed that the U.S. has control of the game as they defended well in the next few minutes until Sawa sent the ball through the goal only to tie the game at 2-2. United States defended the game in a controlled manner but Japan was reluctant to go.
Both teams played with guts to throw everything they know to win the game. But we all know that every game has an end as the game between the U.S. and Japan.
As for the Japanese team that returned superbly goal after goal. That had been a patient to match the strength of the United States. Japan provided the tenacity and courage that the U.S. has never encountered before.
