U S Women’s Soccer Team Trudges Into Tokyo Olympics Knockout Round
KASHIMA, Japan—In this small steel-fabricating city about 70 miles east of Tokyo—the Youngstown, Ohio of Japan—the superstars of U. S. women’s soccer team delivered a clock-punching, get-the-job done performance to keep their Olympic hopes alive on Tuesday night. They took a conservative approach and tied Australia 0-0, finishing an underwhelming slog through group play at the Tokyo Olympics but doing enough to advance to Friday’s knockout round. The U. S. will play the Netherlands in a rematch of the 2019 World Cup final, which the U. S. won 2-0. The U. S. finished tied with Australia in the Group G standings but finished second in the group behind Sweden on goal differential. In the 12-team women’s Olympic tournament, the top two finishers in each group plus the two best third-place teams advance to the quarterfinals. The world No. 1, which entered these Games aiming to become the first team to follow a World Cup title with an Olympic gold medal, now will buckle down for the eight-team knockout round and hope for better than its 1-1-1 record in group play.“It was a tactical decision by Vlatko (Andonovski, the U. S. coach) for us to shift defensively a little more conservatively and really allow them to get impatient, play it long and give it back to us,” U. S. forward Alex Morgan said. “Eventually, I feel like both teams kind of sat in, and it became a game of playing the professional game and moving on.” All data is taken from the source: http://wsj.com Article Link: https://ift.tt/3rC037A #U.Swomen'ssoccer #newscbs #newstodayusa #newsworldnow #newstodayoncnn #kingworldnews #
