U.S. advances to World Cup final

Abby Wambach scores the go-ahead goal
Abby Wambach scores the go-ahead goal

They did it again.

After a mesmerizing win Sunday against Brazil in penalty kicks, the U.S. women's team pulled out a 3-1 win against France that had the U.S. side looking in peril in the second half of the game.

The match started with a U.S. goal by Lauren Cheney in the ninth minute off a beautiful cross from Heather O'Reilly. That was the first half's only goal.

The French came out the agressors to begin second half play, with Sonia Bompastor scoring from 30 yards out in the 55th minute.

It was at this point the the U.S. team began to falter. While they never trailed, they were constantly on their heels for the first 25 minutes or so of the second half.

But everything changed in the 79th minute. Abby Wambach, who scored the equalizer against Brazil that eventually sent the game into PK's, had another brilliant header to put the U.S. up 2-1.

A breakaway goal with ten minutes left by Alex Morgan only sealed the deal.

The U.S. will face the winner of Japan vs. Sweden on Sunday at noon, Mountain time. At the time of this post, that semifinal game was scoreless in the early stages.
