For the U.S Women’s Soccer Team to lose in penalty kicks like that was hard to watch. I do have to say, though, give Japan all the credit in the world to bounce back like that…not once but three times.
For a nation to come together after such a horrific natural catastrophe takes courage and guts. That’s the mark of a champion. If Japan’s ground forces are as resilient as its women’s soccer team I have no doubt the country will rebuild and return to its former glory even stronger.
Excuse the pun, but the U.S. Women’s Team was blindsided by a tsunamis of nerves…all of a sudden forgetting how to knock a PK in the back of the net. This unfortunate debacle will no doubt hang heavy on the minds of Wambach and Co. for some time. Even though I was in my own house I could feel the pain of every other American watching elsewhere.
But isn’t that why we are primitively drawn to sports in the first place? While the outcome of most World Cup contests hangs in the balance until the final moments fans can always rely on Soccer.com to provide a win-win situation.
With the World Cup fresh on my mind I decided to take a gander at Soccer.com just to see what kind of gear I could pick up.
Look Like Messi, Rooney and Pique
If I had an extra $199.99 lying around and I needed an edge with my first touch on the pitch I’d probably pick up a pair of adidas F50 adizero TRX FG.
