Heath and the GK with a budding relationship. Seem to be having some close, prolonged conversations in the penalty box while she dribbles around.

The ref has been at least consistent with letting them play.   

No doubt. Great job not stopping Netherlands.

It was even predicted way back in the 5th post of the thread this would eventually happen.  :)

And again. However the defender did a great job giving her nothing.

Heath needed to commit to make a move to either open up the shot or allow her to burst by the defender. She just kept doing nothing and the defender did a good job allowing that...even though she kept backing up deep into her own box (a no no)

I wanted it to remain 1-0 for the intrigue. But if it had to go to 2-0 ,that was a perfect way to do it. See you in 4 years!

It’s a world championship game featuring the USA not an episode of Scooby Doo.

That far linesman has been great today. Ref and other, not so much

USA would have gotten away with a 5-nil win if not for that meddling GK

I watch Scooby Doo more often than every 4 years.

While the right call and deserved, too bad it was broken open by a PK and not from the run of play

And again... The US beat the best to do this, no skating by through an easy path. Spain, France, England and now the Euro champs.... All solid.

Yeah their side of the bracket was tougher throughout than the Finals.

Even when the US received a fortunate call or two, you can't say anything since they were almost always the better team in the game.

Very solid and complete performance.

Hopefully this will do more than just create a cash grab victory tour to help the women's side of the game grow.

This

@ChrisVannini: The #USWNT never trailed. They broke the record for goals. They beat the second-, third- and fourth-place teams, along with the host/favorite. Legendary run.

Yep.  The Women's game is as good as it has ever been too.  Going to be interesting to see how much it grows the next 4 years.

They may be forced to strike.  They just signed the CBA two years ago and it runs for another 3 years.  Hopefully something can be mediated that is fair.  They need to have it happen in the next 4-6 weeks before people move on to something new once the news cycle changes.

not to be selfish here, but ...

THAT SECOND GOAL CLINCHED ME $1,076 IN WINNINGS FOR TODAY!!!

:towelwave::towelwave::towelwave:

🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

💜🖤

:pickle:

full disclosure , as usual :D

waited about 5 minutes after the match started to plunk, was hoping to grab USWNT below -200 ... soon as it hit -190 i slammed it. 

then jumped on the over 1.5 at -115 

then 37 minutes in i dropped another $150 on USWNT at -140 ... then used my last $50 to drop $25 apiece on Draw at +235 and the Dutch at +600 - had to hedge - #### it. 

anyways ... i am now full on hooked on footy wagering - this is a hell of a gig to play with, and it all started with this WWC - glad i jumped in here, this was a ####### BLAST, soup to nuts! 

once again - THANK YOU, LADIES!  

and thanks to you lot for all the goodness up in this mutha - yer all aces in my book :towelwave:

Most fun I've had rooting for a sports team in my life.  Watched every second of every game the USA played.  I can now wash the USA I Play Like A Girl t-shirt.  Got a little funky but it was good luck.

That's a pretty sharp t-shirt, actually. Like what they did with it. 

Very sharp. I’m getting a #15 jersey with the 4th star. 😍

LOL, but I do believe you're serious. Maybe you can get a Sue Bird jersey (full disclosure: I'm a CT native through and through who watched the UCONN 2004 WCBB team and thought that was pretty much the height of women's sports up until then.)

I'd probably get USA's #13 if indeed I was impelled or compelled to wear a shirt. Good day for women's soccer in the USA, really.
