Today, the USA women were favored to win the Women's World Cup championship and the USA lost (choked) big time in penalty kicks.
The USA missed their first 3 penalties kicks in the penalty kick stage. They gave up very late goals in regular time and overtime. In other words,the USA choked big time.
It was a nice run, but the USA women are considered to be the the best team in the world, so this is a disappointment.
But congratulations to the Japanese team, they didn't give up and they beat the USA team, so hats off to them.
