USA 2 Germany 1
The USA beat Germany 2-1 in the semi final of the womans under 17 world cup in Christchurch. New Zealand.
The USA team like a lot of their sport stars are a cut above the rest and that is hard at this level where all the teams have some gifted players.
The skill level of these young woman have blown me away, so has the success of the cup itself.
Fifa must be so impressed, this is the first under 17 woman's world cup and for Fifa to give it to NewZealand was a risk.
But kiwis have come out in the thousands and supported it, because the football has been exciting, there have been goals galore, the emotion has been high, I don't think I have ever enjoyed a sports comp more in decades.
Fingers are crossed that Fifa will give New Zealand more cups in the future.
