For anyone who hasn’t been paying attention to the USA run at the Women’s World Cup happening in Canada right now, you’re an idiot. All of your would-be excuses relating to conflicts have run out. No other sport takes precedent throughout the next week. Believe me, I checked. There is more drama in these matches than what’s on Netflix. Seriously, yellow cards galore.
TODAY live on Fox at 7PM ET/4PM PT, USA will take on Germany in the semifinal round in Montreal.
Here’s a cheat sheet to get you up to speed–
•Germany is currently ranked #1 in the world.
•USA is the only country ever to have made it to 7 semifinal appearances in the WWC. You can say it. Total bosses.
•Friday’s win against China had 2 USA players benched due to yellow cards. They will be back and looking for vindication.
•We win, we go to Vancouver for the final match on Sunday. That’s right, the World Cup Final. One of the most highly touted sports trophies of all time.
FURTHERMORE, who can forget the men’s tenuous 0-1 Pool of Death loss to Germany last year in Brazil during the rainstorm? If this game and all that’s riding on it doesn’t spell redemption, I don’t know what does.
Today is your chance to catch up and stay up. Turn on that communal TV at work, stream it online or grab your friends and head to a watch party. We all did it last year, this is no different. These dames have game and you don’t want to miss out.
Now say it with us: “I BELIEVE THAT WE WILL WIN.”
