It came down to penalty kicks and the Japanese women came out on top of the United States Sunday night in Frankfurt, Germany.  The American women controlled most of the game but came up short on a number of great chances.  Finally, the U-S squad took a 2-1 lead in regulation only to see the Japanese tie it again with 10 minutes to play.  So tied at 2-2 at the end of regulation the title game went to 30 minutes of extra time.

Again the Americans took a lead, but the Japanese tied it up with just a few minutes left in extra time forcing the shoot-out.  It was in the shootout where the Japanese outscored the U-S on penalty kicks 3 to 1.  The Americans missed on their first three attempts.

It’s the first World Cup title for the Japanese women.  The U-S team was looking to become the first team to win three World Cup titles.
