USA Women Win Group And Advance

Despite their poor start in game 1 the USA women won for the second straight match today and finished first in their group, after Norway were blown out by Japan.

The USA beat New Zealand 4-0 today, while Japan won 5-1 over Norway.

That means the group stage ended like this:

6 USA (GD +3)
6 Norway (GD -1)
4 Japan
1 New Zealand

The USA will now face Canada in the Quarterfinals on Fri Aug 15 in Shanghai.

Hmm..this could be a very interesting matchup. Canada always seems to lift their game a bit when playing the US, and matchup well with their style.

While a Japan draw or even one goal win over Norway would not have been a complete surprise as Norway did not need a huge result in their final group match, a 5-1 demolition of the lady vikings was a shocker, and caused Norway to finish 2nd in the group rather than in 1st due to goal differential.
