Need to get your heart pumping? You might not necessarily need to play sports, but watching the U.S. women play (and beat) Brazil yesterday would have been the equivalent of running a marathon at a sprinter’s pace.
This game had everything: questionable calls by the referees; heart-pumping, then heart-stopping penalty kicks; overtime with a last-minute goal that went straight through the Brazillian goalie’s hands; and then, finally, a double-overtime penalty shoot out.
See the unbelieveable plays and highlights in this video:
Not to mention the U.S. women dominating nearly the whole time even though they were down a player.
So the U.S. will take on France—an equally strong team—in the Women’s World Cup Semi-Finals this Wednesday, noon EST, 11 a.m. Iowa City time.
