The final whistle has blown on the Women’s World Cup final between the U.S. and Japan and what began with the U.S. on June 8th ends today with the U.S.W.N.T. winning the World Cup by a 5-2 score.
The U.S. came on strong scoring 4 goals in the first 16 minutes, 3 by Carli Lloyd alone including one from the midline. Japan came back with a goal and an “Own Goal” Julie Johnson to make the score 4-2 before Tobin Heath knocked in a shot in the 54th minute to cement the win with the teams trading control until the final whistle.
Time to add a third star to the U.S. team’s crest.
Congratulations U.S. Women’s National Team
