Everybody, it’s officially time to jump on the Women’s USA World Cup team bandwagon. The United States beat France 3-1 to advance to the World Cup championship game. It will be the first time since 1999 that the Women’s team has played in the final game.
Abby Wambach scored the go-ahead goal for the women’s team in the 79th minute with a header off of Lauren Cheney’s corner kick. Alex Morgan would add one more goal for the USA Team before the end of the match.
Wambach, who scored her 3rd goal of the tournament today, said:
“This is our journey, this is our dream. France is a great team. There were moments they were outplaying us but I am so proud of this team.”
The US Women’s team will play the winner of Japan and Sweden.
The US Team won the Women’s World Cup in both 1991 and 1999. The Women’s team has never finished outside of the top four.
