    I was really heartened to see Megan Rapinoe nominated above. I find myself getting a bit perturbed at the television announcers for not mentioning Rapinoe’s excellence in her defensive play, as well as Saurbraun (sp?) who together seem to form an impenetrable wall. Hope Solo is a great goal tender, but the statistic that stands out, as well as her shutouts, is the on-frame attempts by opponents. Let’s face it, if you can prevent clean shots from even being attempted off, then you will never be scored upon.

      I agree about Rapinoe. It is so difficult though to just select one player as so many have been influential for different reasons, Lloyd’s composure during high pressure penalties, Johnston’s work both in defence and in attack. It will be interesting to see if Hope Solo has a lot of work to do in tonight’s final.
