Firsts Against Finland

It was a night of firsts for the U.S. WNT against Finland in many ways. First caps for Tobin Heath and Tina DiMartino, first-ever assist for Tina, first goal for Angie Woznuk. There were some seconds too. Second win for Pia Sundhage, second cap for Woznuk and Ali Krieger, second goal for Lauren Cheney, second two-goal game in a row for Lindsay Tarpley. The younger players, and the U.S. veterans, will be stretched even further on Sunday against a highly motivated China team, but the vibe is very good on the U.S. team right now even if their legs are a bit tired. There is no training tomorrow, just another pool workout, and rumor is that the team will be going out for pizza tomorrow night. It just goes to show you, you don’t have to be playing Under-12 soccer to have a pizza party.

Does anyone know of any sites where the games will be posted? I know they have it on CCTV, but I couldn't get it to work last night and I really want to see the games!!

What happened to the Broadway show that was rumoured to be put on by the young players?

Is there a site where we can see pictures of these games? We live on Saipan in the Northern Marianas and you have a big following out here!
