Players’ quotes after Team USA’s 2-0 victory over Germany to advance to the World Cup final:

Alex Morgan

On Celia Sasic’s missed penalty kick, which would have given Germany a 1-0 lead:

“I just felt the wind shift. You could just hear the crowd roaring. Everyone was behind us.”




Hope Solo

On taking her sweet time getting in goal for Sasic’s PK:

“You do what you can. I did the stall tactic. It worked.”



Abby Wambach:

“We have so much trust and faith in Carli, and Carli has so much confidence in herself that it doesn’t matter where you put her on the field. I think she played five different positions tonight.”



Carli Lloyd:

“We didn’t come here just to make the final. We came here to win it.”




Alex Morgan:

“The work’s not done yet.”

  1. I loved Hope’s delay. Can’t start that party without her. I’d love hear what Kelley O’Hara had to say – I love that she got right in and mixed it up with the German marking her when she subbed.
