The United States Women’s National Soccer team is in the World Cup final for the first time since 1999, when they won the tournament in dramatic fashion on home soil in a penalty shootout. The 2011 U.S. squad is trying to match the drama of 12 years ago and so far, they haven’t disappointed. After a come from behind win against Brazil in the Quarterfinals sparked by Rochester native Abby Wambach’s equalizer well into injury time, Wambach did it again coming up big for her team breaking a tense 1-1 tie with a header off teammate Lauren Cheney’s cross in Wednesday’s semifinal against France. The Americans went on to a 3-1 victory putting them in Sunday’s World Cup Final where they will face Japan.
