Statistical Summary: USA / JPN

Shots: 27 / 14
Shots on Goal: 5 / 6
Saves: 4 / 3
Corner Kicks: 8 / 4
Fouls: 10 / 11
Offside: 3 / 2

Misconduct Summary:
JPN Ė Aya Miyama (caution)           97th minute
JPN - Azusa Iwashimizu (sent off)   120

A good red card for Japan, I would say. :'(

The backline really crumbled toward the end of the game.  A much deserved win for Japan, IMO.

For me it looked like Japan was playing with the same attitude the USA had in the Brazil match.

Had no idea where to post this-

My goodness the women's game needs some leadership.  We were heartbroken when the WUSA went under due to poor management.  The WPS was on life support when the WWC brought some attention to the game, but this crew has a passion for self destruction.  Shame on them all.  >:(

Nice to see some props for Joe Sahlen's club; a class act.  They've avoided the Florida circus and have kept this tottering league afloat.  They deserve a championship this year, if for no other reason than they saved the WPS ;D....for now. ???
