First half in the books and it has been all the US. Who lead 1-0 on a goal by Wamback. As this one goes on Norway will have to stop playing the boot and run as the US has been preparing tor that style of play all week.

Thats it Norway goes home wanting. There one dimensional attack was in no way capable of beating the US. They only managed 1 shot on goal in the 96 minuets of play. While the US dominated every aspect except on the score sheet, and Hamm missing a penelty to boot. Norways keeper on the day was the shining star on the nite. Keeping them in the game with some sort of chance.

Just about the only hope Norway had of defeating the U.S. Wednesday would have been for Bente Nordby to have held the U.S. scoreless and given the Norwegians an opportunity to win ithe match on PKs. Bente played an excellent match for Norway and to her credit she even got her hand on the one goal that U.S. did manage to score against her.

Player of the Match: Bente Nordby (NOR)

Yes she did. In fact I thought at times she was the only Norway player on the pitch.
