They not only played a great game against Japan, but were outstanding throughout the tournament. Congratulations to all the team members. It was quite an accomplishment.

It was definitely an awesome accomplishment. I think they went six straight games without being scored upon. By the time Japan broke that streak, they had already scored 4 goals. Amazing performances all around.

For those of use hoping/expecting to win 1-0 in overtime, four goals in 16 minutes was, to coin a phrase, awesome!

A fun team to watch play. I think I saw all of their games and some of the other games. I would say I think the US team was the best of the teams I saw play.

It was a great tournament for Team USA. The announcers seemed to enjoy talking down at their ability to play. Of course the same talking heads were totally different after last nights victory.

I watched many of the games. The semi-finals & final I didn't get to watch (in Europe and the timezone was prohibitively late). Japan played a game of defense and attrition through the Tournament. Germany and the US were the best teams. Unfortunately the way FIFA created the brackets (non-draw unloke the men), they couldn't meet in the finals.

As always there were some very questionable calls...

Not a big soccer fan, but I watched and enjoyed the games. Athletes at the peak of their game are just a joy to watch in any sport. Big congratulations on an awesome series.

Watched every USA game and went up to Vancouver for the finals and a visit to Lee Valley. Outstanding performance by the ladies!

+1 to all the above...

Not sure if anyone else caught this but the American team showed great class during one particular play I remember. It was almost at the end of regulation time and we were up by three goals. An American player got fouled in the Japanese corner, resulting in a corner kick for the US squad. Rather than kick the ball across the penalty box and potentially score again, the American player put the ball back into play with a soft kick to the side, where another American girl then kicked it out of bounds, thereby giving possession back to the Japanese for a throw-in. That was a very sportsmanlike move, I though. In fact, men's football could learn a lot by watching the sportsmanship of the ladies squads. Hardly any flopping or diving, no drama. Really classy play.
