    I guess our womens soccer team

    is not that good. They got beat in there game today. The lady who complained about not starting in the World Cup (Hope Solo) gave up 2 goals. We got beat 2-0. Nice way to start out the Olympics.

    Re: I guess our womens soccer team

    Norway is a very good soccer team. The US wasn't ready in the first 5 minutes and it cost them.

    Norway should get a medal if not close.

    second goal wasn't the keepers fault.

    Plus they just lost Abby Wambach not too long ago to a broken leg. They likely have to adjust how they play due to that. It could take a while.

    Re: I guess our womens soccer team

    Is she like this years version of Mia Hamm. For the record Mia Hamm is the only womens soccer player I have ever known. I used to know the name of the chick who whipped her shirt off after scoring a goal. I forgot her name though.

    From what I read we're not expected to finish any higher than 3rd behind Brazil and Germany.

    I am thinking her name was Brandi Chastaine, but not positive. Only name I know for sure is Mia Hamm as well.

    No, but Wambach was one of the better offensive players on the team, I think.

    Brandi Chastain, BTW.

    I really hope that is not the case ....

    the game was NOT a warm up.

    Re: I guess our womens soccer team

    we dominated the rest of the game.. even with them 'focusing' on defense for 86 minutes.

    Statistical Summary: USA / NOR
    Shots: 20 / 12
    Shots on Goal: 11 / 6
    Saves: 6 / 8
    Corner Kicks: 4 / 1
    Fouls: 12 / 11
    Offside: 2 / 3

    looks like this is a good wake up call

    Group G
    Team W L T Pts GF GA GD
    NOR 1 0 0 3 2 0 +2
    NZL 0 0 1 1 2 2 0
    JPN 0 0 1 1 2 2 0
    USA 0 1 0 0 0 2 -2

    we HAVE to WIN the next two games. Nothing is over as it only matters that you get out of the Group play

    Not so fast my friend .. not so fast.

    Hamm is the leading goal scorer in the history of mens AND womens soccer.
