Women’s World Cup

6 Jul

The final match of the 2015 Women’s Soccer World Cup was played today.

It was Japan vs USA.

The USA won, so they are the 2015 Women’s World Cup champions!
Japan got silver (2nd place), and England won third place!

おめでとうございます!(Congratulations!)

Coincidentally, in the previous Women’s World Cup (in 2011), the final match was played between Japan and America then too. Japan won that time.

America has a strong women’s soccer team. They currently hold the record for the most World Cup champions (three times), and they’re the only team that have been in the top three in every World Cup since the first one in 1991!

    The whole Women’s World Cup was quite a thrill for our house. My husband is English and I am Japanese (born in America)…but of course, we were behind Nadeshiko Japan 100%!

      And you live in America? That’s why your blog is titled “3rd Culture Family”?

      I’m American, but I have been living in Japan since ’90…so, many people ask me which team I supported in the US vs Japan match.
      I was happy that both countries were in the champion match for the second year in-a-row…and that each side won once.
