World Cup Final
Tomorrow the USA women will take on Japan in the World Cup final. Though rated number 4 in the world coming into the tournament few people truly saw Japan as a threat to make it this far. That changed when they shocked the favorites Germany. Japan has won primarily with a controlled possession game while the USA has relied on wing play and set plays for most of their goals. The biggest advantage that the United States squad has is their size and ability in the air. Japan's goalie has performed well for them the last few games but does not have the ability that Solo does, especially in the air which I think will be the downfall of Japan.
