    Solo is having a great game, with some real lucky bounces and coverage by her defense. The Japanese keeper is almost as lucky, with the exception of one minor letdown that gave the US the lead. This will be a great game until the final whistle. Two teams that play the game, not the games within the game where flopping, tugging and fouls are the norm.

    Whoa, cross bar off of a less than stellar sequence by the USA defense.

    She is a keeper, she doesn't scare me, she intrigues me......

    Besides, as a Keeper's father, she is normal to me, just play within her self and the game plan is all she has to do.

    Japan is attacking yet again, not sitting back and waiting to counter-attack. I think this is confusing the US defense. The USA needs another goal for some breathing room. One goal is not enough against a teamof this caliber.

    We are giving the ball up way too easy at times....and giving them way too much space on the flanks.....Solo was beaten on that last shot....Thank Goodness it went wide....

    That was a close one. Good kick for the far post. Just missed.

    Men of Israel, consider carefully what you intend to do to these men. Some time ago Theudas appeared, claiming to be somebody, and about four hundred men rallied to him. He was killed, all his followers were dispersed, and it all came to nothing. After him, Judas the Galilean appeared in the days of the census and led a band of people in revolt. He too was killed, and all his followers were scattered. Therefore, in the present case I advise you: Leave these men alone! Let them go!

    Another shot that is just wide, and Solo almost had no chance as she was partially shielded by her defenders. The defense is watching more than anything else.

    We are giving Japan way to much possession time. That can bite us in the long run.
