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.

NWSL Champions And The Victory Tour Moves On

KC Score 2015 ChampionsNWSL Champions and the victory tour moves on as

women’s soccer grows in fan base across the country.

FC KC claim their second title in two years with a 1-0 victory

over Seattle Reign Oct 1st in Portland OR for the NWSL

championship. Nicole Barnhart and the KC team defense

dialed up a shutout against the number one team in wins

for the 2015 NWSL regular season, what a strong way to end it.

 

Amy Rodriguez knocked in the only goal, just passed Hope Solo, from a great placed cross

from Heather O’Reilly who received a nice through ball from Lauren Holiday just seconds

earlier. Both teams battled all game up and down the pitch. Seattle had a 70th minute blown

call for a possible pk but the ref must have been out of position. Megan Rapinoe rattled the post

with a nice shot in the second half. Give credit to the head coach Vlatko Andonovski,  his staff set up

a great team defense model to shut down Kim Little and the high powered Seattle Reign. Many great

players on both sides, and many small battles, Solo vs Barnhart, Holiday vs Rapinoe, Rodriguez vs

Barnes, Sauerbunn vs Little, and Coach Laura vs Coach Vlatko. Evenly matched clubs, flip a coin

and you’ll pick a winner 55/45 after 100 flips, it’s only inches in a championship game. The 2015 NWSL

season ends with many awards given out and many reflections of highlights of each club across the

country as they all now get ready for 2016. Golden Boot award goes to Crystal Dunn of the Washington

Spirit being the top goal scorer for the 2015 season. Becky Sauerbunn from FCKC got the defender of

the year award. Michele Betos of the Portland Thorns got the best goalie award. Danielle Colaprico of

the Chicago Red Stars got the rookie of the year award. Seattle’s Laura Harvey pulled in the Coach of

the year award and the Reign received the “supporters shield” having the best record in the league.

Here are some links to videos about each teams highlights through out the season.

Hope Solo, Becky Sauerbunn, Meghan Klingenberg, Ali Krieger, Julie Johnston(who got a goal)

Tobin Heath, Lauren Holiday, Whitney Engen, Kelley O’Hara, Megan Rapinoe, Abby Wambach,

Lori Chalupny, Morgan Brian and Christie Rampone all had great matches sharping their skills

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….

Shout out to Unbelievable Super Subs Teammates of the World Champ’s Whitney Engen, Ashlyn Harris, and Alyssa Naeher

YOU ALL WON THIS FOR US…..

Oh, BTW, FIFA, NO More Artificial Turf !!!!!





U9,U10,U11,U12,U13 Girls Watching World Cup Team USA

USA Womens Team WC 2015

U9,U10,U11,U12,U13 girls watching world cup team USA taking

care of business verses Australia 3-1, Sweden 0-0, and Nigeria 1-0, with two US

wins and only one tie, winning the grp D “group of death”.  Now the US is up against

 

the up and coming Colombian team who beat France, the third ranked women’s team in the world

and with one win, one tie, one loss, they made it through to the next round on June 22nd meeting

team USA. The US squad is very defensively solid. Hope Solo and the defensive four in the back have

only given up one goal in 3 matches and shutting out two tough teams in Nigeria and Sweden.

The USA old coach Pia Sundhage is now coaching Sweden and gets the highly favored Germans on

June 20th. Our US coach today is Jill Ellis who many think is doing a great job modeling this new

squad with the solid veterans team USA is fielding. Offensive is alittle shaky still,  Alex Morgan is

just know coming back from a tough injury and Abby Wambach is trying to work with the new

midfielders and support strikers. Megan Rapinoe saved the day in the first match with two goals

and Christen Press add one to put USA up 3-1 on Australia, and Hope Solo had many amazing saves.

Sweden match was all defense, the midfield and forwards for team USA could not put anything together,

but atleast defense saved the point. In the Nigeria match, PLEASE COACH ELLIS,

STOP WITH THE SHORT CORNER KICK !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We have Wambach, Press, Rapinoe, Sauerbrunn, Johnston, Holiday, AND LLOYD !!!!!!!!

Put the ball on goal between the 12 yd and six yard marker and let them take it out of the air….

We all screamed at the TV during the Nigeria match, someone in Canada heard us,

next play Wambach scores……   GOALLLLLLLLL…. What a concept. PUT THE BALL ON GOAL

The short corner kick play works .000001% of the time, it puts everyone out of sync

and CREATES NO DANGER. On the flip side, a ball put 6 to 15 yrds from goal, has a 6% scoring finish….

Pull up 100 corner kicks taken by our US women’s team,  6 GOALS over 100 tries, do the math.

PLEASE, stop the short corner!!!! USE OUR HEIGHT Advantage….

The U9,U10,U11,U12,U13 girls watching world cup team USA want to see their team

bring home the CUP.  Go USA

Womens US Soccer Team And Fitness / Training Ideas

 

 

 

 

 

 

Team USA Women’s Soccer is off to a great start in the 2012 Olympics. With a 3-0 shut out of

Colombia, the women are going for the gold. Megan Rapinoe is having the tournament of her life

so far. Another goal from Rapinoe, then Abby Wambach, and Carli Lloyd put one in the back of the

net to show the dominance of the USA squad. Hope Solo and the whole US defence seemed to keep

any Colombian attack from even starting. One of the main strengths this team has is the fitness level

of all 11 players. Captain Christie Rampone’s workout and training schedule is as strong as any pro.
