by Ridge Mahoney on Saturday, Jul 4, 2015 12:14 AM EDT
Photo The first rematch of a final in Women's World Cup history is set for Sunday when the USA plays Japan in Vancouver. The Americans will be favored to reverse the result of four years ago. This Japanese team is not regarded to be as strong as the 2011 squad. But there are many veterans of that squad on this team, and the title is theirs until somebody takes it away.

Seattle's love affair with the Open Cup turns sour
The controversy surrounding Clint Dempsey and his trashing of referee Daniel Radford's notebook is quite ridiculous. Ridiculous because there should be no controversy. We know, we saw (and now we've seen it repeatedly) what Dempsey did. We know what U.S. Federation regulations say about that sort of thing -- it is clearly considered, as it should be, an assault on the referee, and the mandated punishment is a six-game suspension.

"I couldn't breathe, my heart was out of my chest, and I wanted the ground to open up and swallow me."

-- Defender Laura Bassett on her reaction after her own goal in stoppage time sent Japan to the Women's World Cup final with a 2-1 win over England, which was playing in the semifinals for the first time. (BBC Sport)
