2011 Women’s World Cup Quarter Finals: Brazil 2 v 2 United States a.e.t (3-5 on penalties)
After a wild and eventful 90 minutes of football that featured a couple of goals and some terrible refereeing going both ways, the United States and Brazil headed to extra time in their 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup quarterfinal match, tied up at 1-1. The United States were playing with 10 women after
Rachel Buehler was shown a red card in the 65th minute. Renata Costa scored for Brazil in the 113th minute, making it seem like the United State’s world cup dreams were over. Abby Wambach brought the United States back into the game by scoring a header in the last possible moments of the match. The penalty shootout brought redemption for United States goalkeeper, Hope Solo. In 2007, Solo was the United States goalkeeper, at least until she was pulled from the lineup heading into the semifinals against Brazil. The US lost 4-0 and Solo let loose an outburst that made her persona non grata among her teammates and many soccer fans. Being able to save Daiane’s penalty gave the United States the win.
“It was our second group game in 2011, USA vs Colombia. I got into the starting line up and I wanted to, of course, make my impact on the game. Very early in the match a defender took a poor touch and I was able to pounce on it. I saw the goalkeeper off her line, so it was probably about 35 yards out. I just hit it right. I don’t score too many from long range. The best feeling, and I just felt my teammates around me instantly. It was probably one of the best goals I’ve ever scored.” Heather O’Reilly on her magnificent strike from distance in the 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup.
USA Women’s Soccer Team | 2011 World Cup - 2nd place
Today’s World Cup final was one of the most intense games I have ever watched. Every single one of these girls did incredible and they are truly #1. They just had a disadvantage in the PK’s because Japan has already seen them kick penalties. & I also want to say CONGRATS to Japan. They’ve gone through SO much, along with their country & they honestly deserved something like this to bring joy to their people. As much I think USA deserved to win, Japan did too.
