There are three intersting stories on the fifa website (http://www.fifa.com/womensolympic/index.html
) about the olympic final.
The gist of the articles seem to be:
The American's were fitter and it showed in the last ten min. of the game and in extra time.
and from the Brazilian Coach: Brazil "expected" to win, the US did not "deserve" the win, there will be changes in personel on the national team because of age, the need for Pro teams in Brazil to support women's soccer.
I watched most of the game but had to give blood during the overtime so missed the winning goal. My observation was it looked like the US - Canada game except that Brazil was in the US role and the US was in the Canadian role. Clear domination by the Brazilians but some good individual defensive plays and a hot keeper.
How did the rest of you see it?
