US wins World Soccer Cup for fourth time

The U.S. Women's Soccer team is still the world's best after dominating the Netherlands in the Women's World Cup final and winning 2-0. Throughout the tournament, the U.S. brushed aside criticism, complaints of arrogance and calls for the team to tone down their goal celebrations. All the team did was win. All seven World Cup games, in fact.

In the first half, the U.S. created more chances than the Netherlands. The Americans attacked and attacked but the Dutch defense and, particularly, the goalkeeping of Sari van Veenendaal who blocked four shots, kept the U.S. from scoring for the first time in an opening half this tournament.

The sell-out crowd at Stade de Lyon in Lyon, France, decked out in red, white and blue ... and orange, cheered and cheered and sweated it out with nervous fans watching around the world. Before the final, neither team had trailed or lost a game in this tournament. Both squads had each only permitted a total of three goals. The Dutch got better as the tournament progressed — keeping their opponents from scoring in each of the knockout games before the final.
