Morgan in the box, Wambach in the box.
Here comes the cross.
Oh it’s in!
Alex Morgan has done it!
Barely thirty seconds to go!
It’s four-three to the United States!
Tears on the face of Abby Wambach.
Alex Morgan hadn’t scored since the opening match against France, and she just may have put the United States into the gold medal match against Japan on Thursday.
