One could say they didn’t win it. Another could say they came close. Yet another could say they had it and gave it away. But realistically, wasn’t it a huge accompishment to make it to the final game? To make it through any tournament at any level in any sport is a difficult process. Off days, bad calls, lesser talent all play a part in the outcome of a game. At any one time you can be eliminated immediately. So to go through numerous games and make it to the finals is actually a huge accomplishment. A win in the Women’s World Cup Finals would have been amazing, but lets not forget what it took to reach that point at that level of play.
The 2011 USA Women’s Soccer Team should certainly be applauded for their efforts! Losing to the 2011 Japan Women’s Soccer Team is certainly heartbreaking but should not take away from their efforts and accomplishments.
Women’s Soccer fans all over the world were surely provided with USA Women’ Soccer Team autographs on USA Women’s Soccer Team Autographed Soccer Balls and USA Women’s Soccer Team Autographed Jerseys. Even the winning Japan Women’s Soccer Team signed some Japan Women’s Soccer Team Autographed Soccer Balls.
Lets not get lost in the outcome of the final game. Let applaud the accomplishment of both the USA Women’s Soccer Team and the Japan Women’s Soccer team for getting to the final game of the 2011 Women’s World Cup.
