And take home the Bronze Medal in extra time. They really should have had a Silver at worst, but this one feels really good considering France beat them 4-0 earlier last year. 1-0 in extra time and Canada takes Bronze.

Why should the Canadians have had silver after losing to the USA?

NEVER whined to a ref looking for a call...
She played the game inside of the game and got her way.

Rock On AMS!

She did her thing. I have an issue with the ref listening to her and making 2 horrid game changing calls in a row.

That is not a penalty shot. The ball was kicked into her and if it didnt hit her hand, it wouldve been blocked by her ribs. By definition that is NOT a penalty kick call.

What IS a penalty kick, is when the American defender stuck out her arm to block a shot today during the gold medal game, actually, thats supposed to not only be a penalty kick but a red card as well. Ref looked at it, but didnt see it.


Now instead of replying like someone with soccer knowledge who can argue about those calls. you have no idea about the sport so you will reply with "yeah keep whining"(simply because you dont know any better)

When it was actually horrible gamemanship. Hope she's proud that she convinced an incompetent official to make a ridiculous call.

My big issue is the ref taking the bait. I will not have a lack of respect for Wambach here... I mean, how many times do you hear players yell "offside" or "foul" etc. Its up to the ref to do what they think is right. In this case, the ref did what Wambach though was right, which is not the right call to make.

Wombach did what she has to do, i have no issue with her on that. My issue lies with the ref for taking the bait.
