Four minutes, two goals, one stunning loss.
The U.S. women’s Olympic team got off to a terrible start on Wednesday, giving up two goals in the first four minutes as Norway shut down the Americans, 2-0, in the opening match of the tournament.
The loss, coupled with the Japan’s tie with New Zealand, means the Americans are in last place in Group G after the first round of games.
The Americans are still favored to advance to the quarterfinals, but the loss certainly sets off alarm bells for a team that is trying to win without star striker Abby Wambach.
