USA-Japan

Recommended Posts

Have to say even though Japan is the more highly ranked team, I am glad to see Sweden get eliminated. Hopefully the US can complete the tremendous story started with that improbable win over Brazil!!

So many missed opportunities....it could easily have been 4-0 USA midway through the 1st half. Instead, it's scoreless, Japan is feeling confident, and if the last American attempt at pressing the ball is any indication, they're getting a little frustrated.

Hopefully, they get off to another fast start in the 2nd, and we aren't sitting here an hour from now, wondering what could have been.

Wow, very disappointing for US. But overall....what an epic game.

It was a good game. Just disappointing when USA seriously could have/should have scored so many more goals and failed.

Definitely a huge disappointment. Seemed like they couldn't find the balance between holding the lead and still keeping the pressure on. Credit to the Japanese, but it's hard to see them as the better team. Definitely took advantage of the windows the US left open.
