When A European Crowd Goes Nuts Cheering For The USA

You know something amazing is going on

As the lady said

“I just took a touch and friggin’ smacked it with my left foot,” Rapinoe said. “I don’t think I’ve ever hit a ball like that with my left foot. I got it to the back post and that beast in the air just got a hold of it.”

A thing of beauty.

    That was an AMAZING kick! Yay!

  2. Skyler says:

    Not a big fan of soccer, but that was an amazing thing to watch. They should be very proud.

    It’s still soccer ZZZZZZZZZ.

  4. JeffS says:

    I played soccer in high school, and a little in college until I got injured.

    But I don’t watch it. At all. It’s fun to play, mostly boring to watch.

    Them Euros must hate Brazilians even more than us, unless Yanks bought all the seats.

  6. Skyler says:

    Oh, I couldn’t watch an entire game. But that play was really amazing.

    Soccer is like basketball, the game is too easily decided by just one small error by one player. It’s hard to get worked up by who wins or loses.

    Oh, darn the formatting killed my graphic.It’s supposed to have lines and arrows before each “basket” or “No Goal”

    I had thought for sure that the imported NHL refs were going to hose the US side on that. A red card was excessive on the penalty in the 65′, and the “box violation” that let the Brazilians re-take the penalty after it was saved (tre-MENDOUS stop by Hope Solo) was ticky-tacky. And the Brazilians were offside on their second goal.

    Overcoming all that is a job well done. Good on ya, ladies.
