    Japan seems to be attacking more than sitting back and waiting to counter attack.....that could be a concern later in the match.

    Wow, the Japanese almost equalized. The US had 9 behind the ball, and they still almost scored..... Great job by Rapinoe to cover Solo.

    A second attack is also thwarted by Solo and the back line, but Japan are pressing more, and the US defense needs to step up...

    Japan is playing level with the US right now. Can the US take it up a notch to pressure the Japanese back line?

    Boxx and Rampone have helped settle things down again....thank goodness...

    Solo is going to have one of the games of her career....as this is a very good Japanese team...

    Nice to see a pure game tonight after the chippy play of Columbia and Canada....

    How the heck did that one not go in for the USA?? Keeper beat and it pinballs off of the right post and stays out....would have been an own goal....
