Japan Women's Soccer Wins World Cup!

Inspired Japan shocks Team USA to win first Women's World Cup in penalty kicks

Via The Associated Press/

"Japan has won the Women's World Cup, stunning the United States 3-1 in a penalty shootout Sunday night after coming from behind twice in a 2-2 tie.

Shannon Boxx, Carli Lloyd and Tobin Heath all failed to convert for the Americans, who squandered dozens of chances throughout the game and blew a lead just six minutes from winning their third World Cup title."

御祝い!御祝い!御目出度う御座います! Congratulations Japan!
