The USA women soccer team takes the field at 2:30pm Eastern Time for the Women's World Cup final. I am sending my positive 2-1 victory thoughts across the Atlantic to Germany to a great group of soccer players who are representing us so well.
The Japanese team is highly motivated to bring joy to its nation that is reeling from so much death and destruction. Japan is also a technically excellent, superbly fit team that managed to defeat Germany, the world's dominant women's soccer team, on its home field.
It won't be easy but this USA team has found a way when there seemed to be no way.
USA World Cup Champions.
