MOST COMMENTED

The Americans got a powerful header from Shannon Boxx in the first half (her first goal since returning from knee surgery) and second-half strikes from Kristine Lilly (124th career goal and seventh of 2007) and Abby Wambach(75th to tie Cindy Parlow for fifth place on the all-time U.S. scoring list). The fourth U.S. goal was an own goal.

The USA has now won three consecutive games against the Japanese after tying the three previous matches.

"I was really happy with the performance," said U.S. head coach Greg Ryan. "I thought we defended really well. Japan is very quick, skillful and creative, and broke us down in the second half, but overall I thought we defended very well. I was really happy with how aggressive we were in attacking and really going after them."
