Video: Japan Wins Women’s World Cup On Penalty Kicks

People come for the awards. And we’re sad to report that ESPN just might not care as much about these awards as we do.


Watch The Goals That Put The U.S. In The Women’s World Cup Final

Despite striking first against France in the Women’s World Cup semifinals today, the United States was in trouble in the second half – the team lost its lead and was generally outplayed. But as we’ve learned, this team does not go away easily.
