Alex Morgan saves the day, sends U.S. to final vs. Japan


Three times, Christine Sinclair gave Canada and the lead three times in the football team returned to the U.S. women. Then, in the 123rd minute, Alex Morgan became an Olympic hero with a great title after defeating Canada 4-3, and sending every American watching in hysterics.

What I liked about the game after an interview with Morgan, NBC Sports, youth and her emotions show, and she was talking about Japan. Everything on the football team in the U.S. women at heart, probably would encounter in Japan created a rematch against the team that beat them in the 2011 World Cup final with a penalty.

The last time Canada beat Team USA women, Alex Morgan was eleven years old. Title Morgan came seconds before the second overtime was drawing to an end. The match was so back and fourth, watching the penalty would have been excruciating. I can not say that we would have won if he went to penalty kicks, Canada, of course, the best opponent of the U.S. team faced so far in the London Olympics.

Canada meets the U.S. speed team and they had surgery, they stuck to the passage of the strip. Team USA dominated play early, but created few scoring opportunities.

Christine Sinclair, Canada should be the most disappointed Olympic champion in London right now. Surprisingly, Sinclair notched a hat trick and three goals in regulation were the most against the Americans in May 2008.

There were moments in the semifinals, when Sinclair suddenly appear behind all the American defenders. She was the most aggressive player I've seen in the tournament, perhaps second only to Abby Wambach who had a goal. It was the fifth goal in five matches Wambach in the tournament.

It will be interesting to see how Hope Solo recovered from the fact that its weak performance so far in the Olympics. That's Christine Sinclair against Hope Solo, and Sinclair clearly won ... Performance wise, but not on the scoreboard. You can not put it all on the solos, though, especially in the third assessment of Sinclair, who was only a title that has penetrated into the left-hand post.

This was an epic semi-final. Canada is going home with a loss, but they pushed the U.S. team on the verge of exhausting and just came up short. Megan Rapinoe, with its bending a corner kick in the 55th and 30 in the basement of the 71st, was a sensation in America. She deserves to NBC Sports after the interview. NBC was just talking to Abby Wambach and Alex Morgan.

Something tells me that winning the title of Morgan is just the beginning of a long line of incredible moments, it will have been an exceptional career.
