    USA vs Brazil

    went up 1-0 early on an own goal by Brazil and we've played decent defense so far. marta is frustrated already and has resorted to playing dirty in under 30 minutes

    My future wife, Hope Solo, has a few good saves so far this game.

    There are not many crowds or places in the country that have a better impact on the game than at Iowa State. The Cyclone fans are truly a sixth man. The place is so loud and always a fantastic crowd." - Former Kansas and current North Carolina head coach Roy Williams

    Started to give up a few too many chances. I feel like we are just trying to hold on to this and we are going to struggle to do that. Need some counter-attacks to put some pressure on them.

    Whatever you meant to say there, apparently she turns you into a mushmouth



    Im just glad I have Homan as my bodyguard, Eustachy joked. If I ever make it real big and get to drive a limo everyday, hell be driving it. I thought he came off the bench like somebody was stealing his cow or something.

    This game is turning into a ****-show by the refs.

    The World Cup is the only time I usually watch soccer, but of all the penalty kicks I've watched that could be called every time.

    AND......this is why soccer sucks!! A BS red card and a BS yellow on the no-goal turned goal. Refs have too much power to decide a game. US is getting robbed!

    Horrible call by the official there. Makes one wonder if the officials hate the United States or something, when you couple that with what happened to the men last year in one of their games with being robbed by the officials.

    The red card really wasn't too bad of a call. Sure the contact wasn't that much but it was to deny a goal scoring opportunity which is why it was called

    Both Marta and Buehler were using their forearms to try and fend the other off. That wasn't a foul.
