U.S. women find greatness in gold in World Cup final rematch
After missing the Beijing Olympics with a broken leg, then losing the World Cup final to Japan in penalty kicks, Abby Wambach and the United States women found greatness again Thursday, avenging their World Cup defeat by beating Japan 2-1 for Olympic gold. Wambach cried into the U.S. flag at midfield after the game.
Carli Lloyd slipped not one but two goals past Japan’s Miho Fukumoto to complete the U.S. women’s redemptive gold medal run. Her first, a header, was followed by a 20-yard right-footer just inside the left post.
