LONDON — The U.S. women’s soccer team received redemption Thursday in the 2012 Summer Olympic games after defeating Japan 2-1 to capture their 4th gold medal out of 5 Olympics. Star players Hope Solo, Abby Wambach, Alex Morgan and Carli Lloyd, along with a well coordinated team effort, contributed to the Olympic championship.
Carli Lloyd led the American attack by scoring both goals. Hope Solo maintained a solid defense of the goal, with spectacular saves on two tough shots. By beating Japan, Team USA received redemption against the team that defeated them in the heartbreaking World Cup Final that Japan won on penalty kicks last year. These two teams are undoubtedly one of the best rivalries ever.
The U.S. Women’s Soccer Team now maintain their perfect record dating back three Olympic Games and with this gold medal win, Team USA will be guaranteed a 10-game victory tour in the United States.
Japan won Silver and Canada won Bronze.
