The U.S. Women soccer team beat Brazil in penalty kicks after the U.S. team tied it up at the 122nd minute mark. Abby 

Wambach was clutch as she had a magnificent leaping header. The United States advanced to Wednesday's

semifinals against France, which eliminated England on penalty kicks Saturday. And while the Americans will have to

win twice more to win the final, they are the only favorites left after two-time defending champ Germany was stunned by

Japan on Saturday night.For Brazil, it is yet another disappointment at a major tournament. And this one is sure to sting

more than any others because Marta had it won for the Brazilians, scoring her second goal of the game in the second

minute of overtime for the 2-1 lead. But Erika stalled when she went down on a tackle, and the delay added three

minutes of stoppage time to the game.
