WNT Comeback Victory Vs Brazil

WNT comeback victory vs Brazil was one of the biggest

wins in US soccer history.

The USA women’s team acquires a huge comeback victory vs. Brazil last Sunday at the Qualcomm Stadium during the 2017 Tournament of Nations. They were able to overcome a 3-1 deficit during the final 10 minutes of the game, resulting to them beating Brazil, 4-3. This huge success is due to their excellent teamwork and commitment in training. Samantha Mewis atleast got the USA level on the 18th minute with a 22 yard strike to keep the US in the game, assisted by Rapinoe.

The comeback began with Christen Press making a goal during the 80th minute, just 2 minutes after Andressinha of Team Brazil scored a free kick. She has exerted great effort in order to turn her defender around and using her right foot, she shot to the upper left corner, passing the goalkeeper of Brazil, Barbara. This is Press’s 2nd goal of the year and 43rd international goal as a professional soccer player.

5 minutes later, an equalizer was delivered by Megan Rapinoe with the assistance of Press. Rapinoe has not scored for the national team since the World Cup that has occurred back in 2015 and she has been recovering from knee injury last year. Nevertheless, she was able to rebound this season by leading the league with 12 goals. Julie Ertz also tucked away a goal on a deflection during the 89th minute, giving way for the team’s first lead in the game.

Although the game did not began smoothly for the USA women’s team, during the final 10 plus minutes, there has been a significant 180° changed on how the members of the team played and this played a very vital role in the team’s success. With that, Jill Ellis’s team was able to avoid losing for the 4th time this year. Of course, Coach Ellis has also played an important role with her moving Sauerbrunn from her usual spot at the center back to the defensive midfielder.

On the other hand, prior to the team’s victory, they fell 1-0 to Australia. Australia’s team has not won any of the 27 matches that has previously occurred against U.S. So, this can also be considered an achievement in their part. The goal was made thank to Tameka Butt who lashed the ball past Naecher after Egmond flicked the ball towards him during the 67th minute of the game.

Australia has led the Tournament of Nations after their 4-2 win against Japan during the first game of the day. Nevertheless, due to this win of the USA women’s team, they still have the chance to go for the tournament title. All of the 4 teams would be heading to the North to conclude the competition. So, they don’t have much time to celebrate for their success since they need to continue practicing for their upcoming game vs. Japan while the Australian team would be competing with Brazil on the 3rd of August at the StubHub Center. In order for the US women’s team to win, they need to defeat Japan and Brazil needs to defeat Australia. That way, the 3-goal difference would be overturned. After WNT comeback victory vs Brazil, now on to Japan Aug 3rd, tune in for the drama and excitement.

OMC Oh My Carli, TEAM USA World Cup Champs

Super Carli Lloyd US World Champion  OMC Oh My Carli, TEAM USA World Cup Champs!!!

Carli Lloyd has put herself and team USA into the record books.

Amazing performance from ALL US women’s team members and coaching

 

staff to pull this one off. With all the pressure of knowing we as good as we are, and playing in our back

yard of Canada for most of the US to attend if they wished, this couldn’t have gone any sweeter.

Wambach’s last match played for the US and probably Christie Rampone’s last match however both

women seem to be able to play into their sixties if they wish. What a send off for the veterans of the

squad and a huge step up for any women wanting to join this amazing bunch of athletes. This defense

is one of the strongest in any World stage competition, men or women, only one goal given up by this

whole team going into the final. Not just how good Hope Solo (goal keeper) played,but the front four of

the defense and the subs that came in. Look for underlined names with mp3 interview links during

World Cup 2015 from US players below, done by Men in Blazers. Awesome showing by Becky

Sauerbrunn, Julie Johnston, Meghan Klingenberg, Ali Krieger, Kelley O’Hara, Heather O’Reilly,

Lori Chalupny, and the midfield who dropped back so much to help. This team got better every match,

and rolled with the punches. Wonderful patterns of play produced by Christen Press, Tobin Heath,

Lauren Holiday, Morgan Brian, Amy Rodriguez and Shannon Boxx. Sydney Leroux saw sometime

but it was Alex Morgan and Megan Rapinoe who put the pressure on the opposing defenses and

opened up lanes for Carli Lloyd to work her magic. Rapinoe and Morgan really took alot of the

concentration of the opponents. Lloyd was on a mission!  And no one could stop this dynamo…

Setting world cup records with the only hat trick in the final match, the time it took to achieve it,

16 minutes total from one to third goal,  received both the Silver Boot and Golden Ball award for

this world cup tournament. Having 6 goals and assisting on three others, Lloyd was the force to put

the US into the history books. Three time world cup winners, the US has the toughest team in the World!!!

If you are a U8, U9, U10, U11, U12, U13, U14, or U15 player,  go out and see these women play, they

have a great league at http://www.nwslsoccer.com . Once again congratulations Coach Jill Ellis,

Hope Solo gets the Golden Glove Award,

and OMC Oh My Carli, TEAM USA World Cup Champs!

Carli Lloyd for President….
