Alex Morgan Goal Versus Japan
Again it was Megan Rapinoe who supplied the fantastic pass, like she did to Wambach against Brazil, this time it was a long through ball to the speedy left footer Alex Morgan, who sets herself up nicely with her first touch and smashes the ball into the far corner. Goal.
It seemed like her goal would be the game winner, but of course Japan went on to, amazingly, win the game in penalty kicks. Oh yeah, don’t miss the boy in the stands celebrating Morgan’s goal by pulling up his shirt – they’re calling it the Truffle Shuffle which Chunk performs in The Goonies. He comes at the 50 second mark in the video below.
