Here’s Ian Darke With Your USA Goals That Sent Them To The Women’s World Cup Final

It was another thrilling game for the United States Women’s National Team as they battled France in the semifinals of the 2011 World Cup.  Lauren Cheney scored inside the first ten minutes to give the United States another early lead, but the French dominated possession for large portions of the first half and were rather unlucky to be trailing at the interval (said in my best British accent).  All of the French possession and quality chances paid off when Sonia Bompastor equalized on a fluky cross that bounced pass Hope Solo.  With the USA team up against the wall, it was Abby Wambach once again that “saved the USA’s life in this World Cup” scoring a goal off a corner in the 79th minute.  Here’s the game-winning goal from @bubbaprog at SportsGrid with the ever popular Ian Darke on the call…

Only three minutes later, Alex Morgan provided the clinching goal on a fantastic chip over the French keeper to seal the 3-1 victory…

The USA plays upstart Japan (who beat Sweden on Wednesday) in the World Cup Final in Frankfurt, Germany.  Ian Darke and Julie Foudy will be on the call at 2:45 ET Sunday afternoon on ESPN.  It’s amazing how this team has captivated the nation over the last week.  Let’s bring home the World Cup, shall we?
