The U.S. women’s football team fell short on the penalty kicks that led them to the defeat against the Japan’s team and the Cup in the finals held in Germany yesterday, July 17.

U.S. finished second after Japan keeper Ayumi Kaihori came up with a kick save on Shannon Boxx’s opening shot, then Carli Lloyd blasted her shot over the crossbar and Kaihori again saved Tobin Heath’s attempt after that. Japan won the shootout 3-1 and brings home the Cup to their disaster-stricken land and people.

Japan’s win will be much appreciated by Japanese people as the team played with them in their hearts and minds. Congratulations, Japan. Hope this World Cup brought you smile 🙂
