Alex Morgan keeps the USA alive; Heading to the Gold Medal Game

Team Canada gave the US women’s team all they could handle today. With under a minute left to play, the second overtime, Alex Morgan had a beautiful header to seal the game for Team USA.

Canadian head coach John Herdman, had raised a few eyebrows last week when he called the attack of Team USA, “highly illegal,” specifically their tactics on free kicks and corner kicks.

“4-3! And victory! On to Wembley,” US Goalkeeper Hope Solo tweeted after the victory. “Sometimes its that entertaining of a match. I never like to see 3 goals, but its all part of the game!”

Now, Team USA will face team Japan, who snatched the World Cup victory from the US last year.
