US beats Germany 2-0 to advance to Women's World Cup final
The United States advanced to the Women's World Cup final Tuesday, downing No. 1 Germany 2-0 on goals from Carli Lloyd and Kelley O'Hara.
The two-time champions will play the winner of England-Japan, which meet Wednesday. The World Cup final is Sunday.
Tuesday’s match in Montreal pitted the two top teams in women's soccer -- with Germany going into the day ranked No. 1 by FIFA and the U.S. right behind them.
The two nations also represent the most-winning teams in the tournament's history, with both countries having won the tournament twice -- the U.S. in 1991 and 1999 and Germany in 2003 and 2007.
Going into the match, both Germany and the U.S. had struggled to produce its best form at times during the tournament.
Germany beat France on penalty kicks in a tense quarterfinal, while its American counterparts were criticized for the sluggish performance in a 2-0 victory over Colombia before beating China 1-0 in their quarterfinal matchup.
But by reaching Tuesday's semifinal match, the U.S. chalked up a unique feat in Canada, becoming the only team to have reached the last four in all seven World Cups played.
The Americans lost to Japan four years ago in the final match and finished third in 1995, 2003 and 2007.
Germany will take on the loser of the Japan-England match in the tournament's third place game on Saturday in Edmonton.
