Few will forget the drama on display in last summer’s Women’s World Cup final between Japan and the U.S. All hail the soccer gods for generously providing a sequel.
It’s definitely not over yet. Now FIFA’s involved in the latest fracas engulfing women’s soccer.
Alex Morgan’s late header at Old Trafford staved off Olympic elimination and forces a rematch against Japan in the final. Really, it’s just Alex being Alex.
So, the result didn’t quite go Canada’s way, but how ’bout that performance? Scant consolation, indeed.
One year removed from World Cup humiliation, Canada could have its best Olympic showing to date. A semifinal clash with the U.S. awaits.
