What a game! Exactly what you want from a World Cup final.
Congrats to Japan, it's great to see a team from the AFC getting up.
Sad for the USA, they played like champions the whole tournament.
Well worth getting up at 4am to watch!
@Danielle I totally agree!!! It was an amazing final. It was sad for USA but I do think Japan were worthy winners. They came from behind twice, never panicked or changed their game play even when they were losing time.
The whole tournament has been amazing and as we thought, it has done wonders for the women's game around the World :):)
