The early pressure came from the USA as they did battle against Japan in the FIFA Women’s World Cup final in Germany.
And it was the USA who managed to score first, albeit well into the second half after plenty of chances prior.
Alex Morgan, a substitute at halftime, struck the ball perfectly past the Japanese keeper in the 68 minute.
Aya Miyama equalised in the 80th minute for Japan in a goalmouth scramble.
Then it was captain Abby Wambach who grabbed the lead back for the USA with a 100th minute header to take it to 2-1
