For 16 Minutes, Carli Lloyd Was The Greatest Player Of All Time

From the start, it felt like the fate of the United States women’s national team hinged not on talent or tactics or even luck, but on the answers to a series of open questions. Can Alex Morgan get healthy in time to contribute? What do we do with Christen Press and Sydney Leroux? What happens when we pretend a… » 7/06/15 12:27pm 7/06/15 12:27pm

USWNT Shock Japan With Four Goals In Sixteen Minutes, Win World Cup

Watch The Gut-Churning End To The Women's World Cup

The U.S. women's national team's run came to an end today in Frankfurt. Here's Abby Wambach's go-ahead goal in extra time, Homare Sawa's nifty conversion off of a corner kick soon after to tie it up, and — for the U.S. and for me, at least — the heartbreaking end in penalty kicks. I still advocate for Wambach's … » 7/17/11 6:25pm 7/17/11 6:25pm
