    Very strong starting 11. Maybe Pia is sending a subtle message......

    Notre Dame only had one Rudy but Nebraska gets a new crop of Rudys every season

    Or not so subtle....I think you are going to see us attack Japan relentless today and not allow them to stay back and bunker in and hope for a counter attack to win....which as we both know is their style...if we do so I think we win comfertable....should be fun...

    USA!!

    In minute five a non-call on Alex Morgan being brought down just outside the box....wow....looked like impeding a clear goal chance...interesting no call...

    Wonderful goal by Wambach in minute 7...off fo a great buildup.....that is good omen....

    Boxxy being back is huge...allowing out attacking players to go forth more than anyothe rgame in this Olympics...

    USA 1 Japan 0

    USA is domintating this game early and attacking and controlling possesion....

    Now they are saying the goal was Lloyds...headed it just before it hit Wambach's foot....go figure..

    I can see where it was a no call, as Alex crossed behind the Japanese player, and their feet got tangled up.

    Now, if the Japanese player had been behind Alex, then it should have been a card.

    Besides, I didn't say goal in the 9th minute, just that it is 1-0 in the 9th minute, 13th now....
