    Carli Lloyd leads USWNT to Women's World Cup title past rival Japan

    VANCOUVER, British Columbia --
    That wasn't a victory. That was grand theft soccer -- and it came in the biggest game on the grandest stage with a whole lot of Jersey attitude.
    What Carli Lloyd and the United States women's national team heisted inside the muggy confines of BC Place Sunday evening wasn't merely a 5-2 win over defending Women's World Cup champion Japan. It was seizure by the U.S. of the right to claim being the greatest team in women's international soccer.
    Goodbye to 1999. Goodbye to 16 years of World Cup futility. Goodbye to the searing memory of July 17, 2011, when the U.S. twice held the lead against Japan in the Women's World Cup final in Frankfurt and three times let the game escape them.
    Seem it's true what Lloyd, Abby Wambach, Ali Krieger, Hope Solo, Alex Morgan and every woman part of that devastating loss in 2011: Never again!
    Even Japan's great Homare Sawa understood the momentousness of the moment for the U.S. When Wambach subbed into her final World Cup game, the 36-year-old former captain for Japan walked over and gave a high-five to the 35-year-old Wambach. Just a touch of hands for two of the game's all-time great warriors, though on this night, it was all about the U.S

    well done USA, no rolling around 'injured' no biting, elbowing or near leg breaking tackles or spitting all over the pitch. That's best left to the blokes.

    That fourth goal was kicked from one step past the mid-field line by Carli Lloyd and it was her third of the game. Also, all 4 were within the first 16 minutes. From Women's World Cup final match report | USA 5-2 Japan | Football | The Guardian
    She noticed goalkeeper Ayumi Kaihori way off her line, and launched the ball from just inside the Japanese half. Kaihori got her fingertips on it but it ricocheted off the post and in.

    Takes a quick footballing brain to consider that effort. To consider so quickly, and execute so well is rare in the mens game. The girl done good. Goal of the tournament for me. No argument about it.

    3hours of the BBC coverage of the Ger-Eng game got a bit much when I knew the end score. I didn't make it that far.

    I've downloaded the final 'cos at least I'm sure I'll make it till half time. Happy the USA team won
    I'd like to see what morning looks like
    Don't wanna drink pint after pint
    I wanna wake up without feeling sick
    But I can't cuz I'm a drug-abusing alcoholic

    The goal Ronaldinio scored against England in the Japan world cup
    from just inside the half way line had David Semen falling arse over face.
    And that was a free kick.

    Why such a bad rap, I wonder? BeIN Sports broadcasts the Scottish League and those blokes always seem fitter and more enthusiastic, as well as just as skilled as their Premier League counterparts. Crowds are generally more enthusiastic also.

    Hope Solo is a bit sloppy when on the piss, which resulted in a couple of domestic violence incidents.
