2007 Women's World Cup: USA 3 x England 0

With goals by Abby Wambaugh, Shannon Boxx, and the great veteran, Christine Lilly, the United States defeated England to advance to the semi-final round of the World Cup. Their opponent will be either Brasil or Australia.

From a historical perspective, this was the second victory for an American team over England in World Cup competition. England has never beaten either the American men or women at their respective World Cups. In 1950, a virtually unknown and largely amateur US team embarrassed the professionals from England, and shocked the football world with a 1 x 0 victory. The scoreline was originally released as 10 x 0 England because the British media could not believe that the result from Brasil was accurate.

It is always good to beat England, and to maintain a collective clean sheet against them. ;-)


China lost to Norway, 1 x 2, and Brasil defeated Australia, 3 x 2.

Game times for the semifinals, along with the final, will be 2000 local time, which is 0200 Central European time, and 0800 Eastern Time in the USA. The games will be shown live by ESPN/2 and Telefutura in North America.

Germany x Norway on Wednesday. (Both teams have won the World Cup).

USA x Brasil on Thursday. (The USA has not lost a game in 51 matches, and this is a repeat of the 2004 Athens Olympic final).

The final will take place on Sunday at 2000 in Shanghai.
