MLS plays down the passion thing

"My players have given their all in every match, and overall they've had a great tournament here in Canada. Today, though, the Americans were simply too strong. In the first few minutes, it seemed as if every shot ended up in the back of the net."

-- Japan coach Norio Sasaki fell 5-2 in the Women's World Cup final, in which the USA had a 4-0 lead by the 16th minute. (FIFA.com)
