Americans all over the country got treated to a spectacular Women’s World Cup Final yesterday afternoon, a day after we celebrated our Independence as a nation. Let’s just say it was the perfect ending to a wonderful 4th of July weekend! It was a battle between Japan and the United States to see who would be crowned as the victors of the 2015 Women’s World Cup. But the excitement on the side of Japan was taken away almost instantly as the United States jumped out to a 4-0 lead within the first 16 minutes of the match. One of the most bizarre beginnings to a soccer game ever before, especially with Carli lloyd’s miraculous goal from about mid-field. Japan would continue to show their grit and professionalism as they continued to compete but couldn’t overcome the huge early deficit they dug themselves into; losing by a final score of 5-2. Take a look at the highlights from the incredible game in the video below!
