Pretty fun to watch.
I certainly didn't expect a USA win, much less a win by 2-0! I was pleasantly surprised.

Looking forward to the England vs Japan game!

Soccer/football can be a very brutal game.

2 back to back WC finals.

Incredible that these women have more heart and guts than the men's national team.

Don't be absurd. Any decent high school boys team could beat the USWNT.

The US has never failed to finish outside of the top 3 in the 7 women's World Cups that have taken place. Their program is consistently at or very close to the top in the world. Don't discount the performance the men put in back in 2002 over in Japan and South Korea.

Having said that, men's soccer is FAR more competitive than women's soccer. It's not even close really. Also, our best athletes in the US do not play soccer. They play football, basketball, baseball, hockey and lacrosse instead.

Not sure how saying "more heart and guts" is interpreted as "more skilled".

Not sure how you measure "heart and guts." Pretty sure how you measure skill.

I've no idea how it's measured but when people say an athlete has "heart", I'm pretty sure they're not talking about his skills but more his effort and attitude.
