I thought the U.S. was a little lucky to pull this one out. A very close offsides call review reversed what appeared to be a good goal by England. And the U.S. goalie coming up huge on a penalty kick in the waning minutes preserved the Americans’ lead in the waning minutes.

The U.S. played without Megan Rapinoe who reportedly was out with a pulled hamstring. Or was she possibly held out for some other reason???

She said after the game that it was her hamstring. She said she should be good to go for the championship game. Just too hard to recover in 3 days.

I guess you could say the US was lucky, but once again they got a lead and held on. That’s not lucky. If they needed to press to get another goal late, I’m sure they could do it. Luckily for them they haven’t been put in that situation yet.
