i don't know what people talk about Canada deserving to win semifinal, from what i saw (sadly didn't get to see entire game, due to a bunch of reasons) US attacked more, and didn't get some possible PK calls long before Abby converted hers(and that was, in my opinion, a legit penalty). Same in the final: US attacked more, showed more inventiveness, and a huge desire to win. Japan is a great team, but they're a bit predictable, as their main strength is great discipline. US is like Brazil in men's game, Japan is like Italy in '82
