      Germany look huge favourites to top Group A and progress to the Algarve Cup 2014 Final. Group B is going to be tough now, Japan and USA can not afford to drop any more points. It will be a battle between Sweden, USA and Japan for the place in the final – Sweden have the advantage after their opening win, but they have a big challenge to overcome USA and Japan.

    My personal view, but USA outperformed Japan not only in the usual physicality and speed but in the quality of passing!! And O’ Reilly looks like Kawasumi playing for INAC Kobe.

    The Nadeshikos were lucky to end up in a draw. It became a close competition because the Americans were relatively poorer in front of goal. It could have become USA’s lopsided win if Bev was there.

      I personally felt the game lacked a certain urgency, maybe both teams were playing too tactical?

      I have hopes for Bev, now she will be playing in the NWSL for a season she will have a great chance to show Tom Sermanni what she can do.

    A nice goal by Miyama. Not impossible for a goalkeeper, but not the easiest shot as well.

    Looks like the US can smell the blood in the water, and have played better the last couple of minutes.

    Heath isn’t playing, but it’s a bit strange that Pinoe looks so out of it…she makes very bad calls…if any player in the US should have match-fitness, it should have been her. Honestly I don’t think her last couple of months for both Lyon as the US have been all that good.

      Agree Rapinoe is does not seem to be playing at her best today. Heath is now on the pitch, great to see her back involved,will take her a while to get back to 100%.

    Such a shame for Japan to concede a goal like that.

    That wrongly made offside call against Japan, not when Ogimi made goal, could have cost Japan at least a draw, after the Leroux goal.
