Down a player since the 66th minute, the heroic USA women managed to tie Brazil in the 122nd minute on a gorgeous header from Abby Wambach. This came just moments after a player for Brazil pulled off one of the finer WWE moments of the tournament in faking an injury and then seconds later leaping off the stretcher and sprinting away. Karma is quite the bitch.
The USA won on penalty kicks thanks to another great save by Hope Solo, who will soon be my girlfriend.
The call of the goal is yet another gift from the great Ian Darke: “Ooooooooh can you believe it! Abby Wombach has saved the USA’s life!” Absolute chills.
When better video is found, we’ll update the post.
