The United States won one of the best games in the history of women’s soccer at the Olympics in their semifinal match against Canada on Monday. It was a back and forth battle that saw seven goals, including the game-winner by forward Alex Morgan with literally seconds remaining in a second overtime period before penalty kicks.
That goal propelled the United States into the gold medal game against Japan, in what will be a rematch of the 2011 World Cup Final.
That World Cup final you may remember was one of the great games in recent history as well. Tied at the end of regulation, and the two overtimes periods, it all came down to penalty kicks between the two teams. Ultimately, it was Japan who bested the United States in penalty kicks, giving them the World Cup title.
But you can bet the United States have not forgotten about that. Not at all.
In fact, many of the team members from the United States referenced a chance at redemption and revenge on Japan. The United States may be the two-time defending gold medalists, but it’s the World Cup match last year that stands out.
