Nigeria handles their passes and plays well but surprising that they just can't finish the plays as well. The shocker for me was seeing Kealia Ohai outrunning the Nigerian defense. I know the Africans are fast runners but that girl was amazingly faster. Speed made a difference in this game. Surprised that Mollie Pathman wasn't subbed out on her position on Left Defense. She just couldn't keep up with that Nigerian right forward. She was beat on the ball too much. They need to consider replacing her for Germany lineup. And Hayes was off all game. Wow. Great job USA.

I personally appreciate the precious efforts of the girls. This certifies the hope that with this level of input sustained, they will rule the world over and over. They should be careful of promises and gifts prompting them to do well. When this types of promises comes, you hardly see teams doing well, nevertheless, they deserve presidential welcome. Kudos

Nigeria lost the semifinal match to lack of adequate and early preparation for the tournament. The Ladies try their best and their best took them to at least 3rd place match. They work together, ...can handle the midfield very well, controls with accurate -short and long passings (tiki-taka) but they lack good finishing work. Weldone the great-football-warriors. NIGERIAN proud of YOU. Kudos.
