Two of the World’s best, and my favorite women’s soccer teams faced each other in the Olympics’ Canada vs USA semi-finals match today. Christine Sinclair, Canada’s team captain scored the first goal in the 22nd minute and then scored 2 more goals bringing her career goal total to 143.
Abby Wambach, the US’s leading scorer scored bringing her US Soccer total also to 143. At 90 minutes, the teams were tied 3 to 3. Two minutes into overtime, following 2 – 15 minutes halves, Alex Morgan headed in the winning goal for the USA…in the 122nd minute of fantastic play. I congratulate both the USA and Canadian teams for a super, fantastic, exciting game.
The USA will play against a very skilled and tough Japan team for gold in the finals on Sunday, 17 Aug at 2:45 pm. Congratulations to USA and Canada, and especially to Alex Morgan and her team mates for their win today.
