    It's a shame they don't have multiple camera angles.
    She was wrong-footed, which made her look like she was rooted to the spot. I used to be a goalie and it happened to me more times than I care to remember! You commit to moving to one side, but before you dive, you realise your mistake, try to correct and look like you didn't move.

    I though Holland put up a good fight, particularly in the first half, but while they are good defensively, they are pretty hopeless in attack. The best team in the tournament - by far - won. Well done USA.
