Morgan delight after USA make it to final

Twitter Erupts After Alyssa Naeher Saves The USWNT In World Cup Semifinal

With the win, the US women's team advances to the final.

But Megan Rapinoe, the USWNT's social campaigner who now transcends her sport after agitating the US President last week, was named on the substitutes' bench.

White's goal was also her sixth but Morgan has the edge for the tournament's Golden Boot with three assists.

England did a good job of chasing the game, thanks to Ellen White's brilliant finishing which has been the highlight of the tournament for the team. This is also the first time a woman has scored in a World Cup match on her birthday.

Naeher's twin sister Amanda and parents celebrated wildly in the seats at the Stade de Lyon, while on the field Naeher urged her teammates to focus for the final minutes.

The mild-mannered goalkeeper was asked afterward if it was the biggest save of her life. I wanted to see smiles, not tears.

Christen Press and Alex Morgan scored the goals for the USA against England, which was playing for its first berth in a Women's World Cup final.

The top-ranked USA team has already faced - and overcome - two big challenges on the way to the final.

He added three goals and two assists in 11 playoff games. "Ennis is a really versatile kind of guy", Dorion said. Hainsey, 38, had five goals and 23 points in 81 games with the Toronto Maple Leafs in 2018-19.

"We don't really bring up the 2015 World Cup that much because it's done, it's in the past". "If Phil has come in with this philosophy that we are going to play out from the back and play through the thirds, we do need to be better on the ball".

England broke free and passed one right past the U.S. goalkeeper in the 67th minute, but that was quickly SNATCHED BACK when further review deemed England offside. After a video review, England was awarded a penalty kick but couldn't score. "Nothing I say can make them feel better". The United States did not concede a goal in the group stage for the first time at a World Cup. With the quarterfinal victory in France, the Americans tied Norway's record winning streak set over the 1995 and 1999 tournaments.

Rapinoe was injured late in the second half of the 2-1 win against France last Friday. Both teams were 5-0.

It's been this way since Naeher emerged as the presumptive starter following Solo's dismissal from the team.

"She saved us in that moment and we knew after that moment that the momentum was shifting and that we had to put in a huge amount of defensive work to close out the game", said Morgan of Naeher.

Kelley O'Hara lofted a sweet cross into the English penalty area and Press slammed a header into goal in the 10th minute. None greater than the lineup announcement that Megan Rapinoe, the most talked about player of this or any Women's World Cup, wasn't starting.

Yet some supporters in Chicago might have felt a little more pride than most, especially the city's professional women's soccer team. White raised her hands to her face for her customary "glasses" celebration.

The United States is dealing with another injury concern as well. It was Morgan's 107th worldwide goal, moving her into a tie for fifth on the USA career list with Michelle Akers.
