Women’s World Cup Final: SBI Live Commentary




After 16 long years, the U.S. Women’s National Team has the chance to add star number three in Sunday night’s Women’s World Cup final (7 p.m., Fox).

The USWNT’s chance for a third Women’s World Cup crown comes against a familiar foe, Japan, the very same team that denied the U.S. in the 2011 finale. Entering riding a victory over top-ranked Germany, the U.S. heads into Sunday night’s matchup with the chance for revenge and an opportunity to claim the team’s first World Cup crown since 1999.

  1. Pow! Just pulsating footie from the U.S. Waves of attack, and goal 5 from Heath. Nice feed from Brian to tee up.

    • I formulated a rule while watching the WC in Italy in 2006: never miss the first five or the last five minutes of any half.

      It worked in 2014 in the MNT v. Ghana game (Dempsey in the first minute) and in this one as well.

      • Clearly, that was the closest example. But still not that close. That Brazil team was always flawed, and waiting to be found out. As clinical as Germany was, the verdict about that game was always about Brazil’s deficiencies,

        This was just about a US team firing at top gear against a team that really wasn’t deficient– just overwhelmed, as any team would be. Japan actually did find a way to make a few people nervous at 4-2, something that Brazil never threatened to do in the least.

        But I do agree… it is the only comparable example recently.
