USA reaches final in Women’s World Cup

The United States swept into the finals of the sixth Women’s World Cup with a convincing 3-1 victory  over France on Wednesday in Moenchengladbach, Germany.

The Americans will play either Sweden or Japan in Sunday’s final in Frankfurt.

Goals by Lauren Cheney, Abby Wambach and Alex Morgan were more than enough to overcome a talented French team that did more of the attacking but could not turn those offensive forays into goals.
