Sunday, 17 July. The United States' hopes of winning the F.I.F.A. Women's World Cup for the record 3rd time smashed after losing to Japan 3-1 on penalties in the Final in Frankfurt following a 2-2 draw after extra time thus created history by winning the tournament for the 1st time. Alex Morgan gets it first for the United States in the 69th minute while Aya Miyama equalized for Japan in the 81st minute. By the end of 90 minutes Abby Wambach added the United States' 2nd goal in the 104th minute then followed by Japan captain Homare Sawa's equalizer in the 117th minute while her teammate Azusa Iwashimizu was red-carded in the 121st minute following a foul and therefore reducing Japan to 10 women. As the 2nd period of extra-time ended the game had to be decided on penalties as follows:
Japan
Aya Miyama (score)
Yuki Nagasato (saved)
Mizuho Sakaguchi (score)
Saki Kumagai (score)

United States
Shannon Boxx (saved)
Carli Lloyd (miss)
Tobin Heath (saved)
