The After Bar: USWNT 2 - Germany 2
Planting the Seed of Soccer Across America: Danny Beerseed
Abby Wambach moved within ten goals of tying Mia Hamm's all-time U.S. (and global) goal scoring record with her 148th goal (a hustle diving header) late in the first half. Tobin Heath added a second in the 67th minute after Alex Morgan made an incredible endline run and cut-back cross to get the ball in front of goal. Both tallies wouldn't be enough as Dzenifer Marozsan fueled Germany with a brace. The fifth match of the Lady Nats' "Fan Victory Tour" ended in a 2-2 draw in front of a soaked crowd of over 18,000 in Connecticut.
Analysis from some of women's soccer's best writers:
Jeff Kassouf (NBC Sports) - "Another draw, a little more possesion for U.S. women in 2-2 draw with Germany"
- USSF President Sunil Guilati says announcement on next USMNT could happen in "the next 10 days".
- Pia Sundhage won her first game as Sweden's national team coach, 3-0 over Switzerland.
