The USA got a big beat up today against Brazil. Nothing too serious, thankfully, but Aly Wagner has some nasty bruises on her legs and it looks as if someone just jammed their cleat into her quad and stomped on her...well, that is what happened. And yes, Carli Lloyd did break her nose today. Well, a Brazilian broke it with her head or shoulder, we're not quite sure. All we know is that there was a lot of blood (we hesitate to use the word "gushing" but...) and Carli had to leave the game. We're happy to report that she fine, and was in good spirits ater the game, although her schnoz is a bit swollen. She is even listed as probable for the USA's next game against Italy, although she would need to play wearing a protective mask. (Hey, the girl is from Jersey...She's tough enough to play with a broken nose). Speaking of Jersey, Christie Rampone also banged up her ankle, forcing her to leave the game at halftime, but she was walking on it after the game and is listed as day-to-day. News may not be as good for Brazilian captain Aline, who may have suffered a serious knee injury. We thought it was an ankle, so it says that in the match report, but apparently it's a knee. We hope she's ok as this U.S. team certainly knows about knee injuries close to the Olympics.
