USWNT Vs. Canada Results: Alex Morgan Header Sends USA To Rematch With Japan

The United States are headed back for another title game matchup with Japan. They have Alex Morgan to thank for that.

Canada took a 1-0 lead off a Christine Sinclair goal. Megan Rapinoe responded with a glorious curl on a corner kick that snuck right into the net to tie things up. Then Sinclair had another glorious goal in the box to make it 2-1 Canada, but Rapinoe responded with another monster goal from outside to make it 2-2. Sinclair competed the hat trick a few minutes later to get it up to 3-2, but then the USA got a handball in the penalty box and took advantage of a PK by Abby Wambach to tie things up and send the game into extra time.

Then it was Morgan. The United States women's national team striker continues to surge as one of the greatest young sporting stars, and she made the game winning goal in a see-saw affair against Canada.
