Couple of interesting twitter responses to the game (all meant in good humor, of course):

Ken Jennings ‏@KenJennings 20m
Hope Japan beats England. I like our odds when the U.S. beats Germany and then moves on to Japan.

Laura Glass @LGBCGolf19
Did you just say Sasic missed it or sausage biscuit? #FWWC2015 #USAGER @ussoccer @ussoccer_wnt @JulieFoudy @AlexiLalas



Well, perhaps not ALL meant entirely in good humor:

Love the enthusiasm and veteran presence of @AbbyWambach despite not playing much.  That kind of leadership is priceless during a WC

English journalist just called Carli Lloyd "the Steven Gerrard of world women's football at the moment." I still don't understand why people feel the need to compare players, female or male, to others in describing them; why not just let Carli be Carli?

Didn't watch the game, but I did listen to it.

This US team is literally proving that old adage is right on the money.

"Defense wins championships".

It wasn't quite catenaccio, but that was the type of defending a Serie A fan like myself could certainly appreciate from the sounds of it. Germany just didn't have an answer for how to unlock us, but if there's any team in this tournament that probably does, it's Japan. I want them in the final.

We have a score to settle.

Dominated them...but had to win with a PK from outside of the box and a missed PK from the Germans.

So O'Hara's goal at the end doesn't count then?

It was scored from the run of play, after all.

Shhh. And certainly don't mention Morgan's chances (her misses somehow being incomparable to Germany's) or the fact that Germany had only a single (or no, depending on which site you read) shot(s) on target all match.

England going very direct up to Taylor. Defending well at the moment but not committing many in attack. I'm worried Taylor is going to become very isolated soon enough.

Decent start though.

Attack isn't quite clicking. More to do with mentality since everything is being rushed whenever the ball goes up.

Gary Lineker ‏@GaryLineker 14m
Artificial pitches have improved over the years but they still don't replicate a good grass surface. Slows the game down.

Most of the complaints about the artificial pitches (that don't reference the ridiculous injury threat and heat) center around the ball bouncing higher and moving FASTER on artificial turf, not slower...

Our plan is pretty clear. Get it up to the forwards and hope they do something amazing, or score from a set-piece. Basically been our way the whole tournament.

I think we're just shading things so far, but a few times we've looked a bit narrow down our right. Good thing Japan haven't used that switch very often.

Kinda want Japan to miss, or else they'll simply play keep-ball for the rest of the match.

All the talk in the build-up about Japan's ball retention and it's the direct pass that catches us out. Rafferty caught out initially, then commits a stupid foul.

Gotta dig deep now.
