In 2011, the United states women's soccer team put up a splendid performance to reach the final in the Women's World Cup final held in Germany. However, they came up short as Japan defeated them to take the trophy. The game had to be settled on penalties after a dramatic 2-2 draw in normal time. Penalty kicks ended up a tragedy for the USA as they missed their first three attempts with Japan scoring 3 out of their first 4 attempts.
A year later however, these two teams will met again in the ongoing summer Olympics in London. The match between the two teams yesterday was no ordinary game but another entertaining and intense Final . This "The Clash of the Titans" gave team USA the chance to redeem themselves and avenge their lost in the World Cup last summer. The United States brought their winning boots on this time and beat Japan in normal time by 2 goals to 1 to take the gold. Sweet revenge for the American ladies while Japan tasted defeat.
