Japan completed their fairy tale run in the FIFA Women’s World Cup with the ultimate prize as world champion by beating the US in the final in Frankfurt, Germany.
The game ended 2-2 after extra time and Japan won it by penalty shootout and became the first Asian team to win the FIFA Women’s World Cup. Quite a shocker as the Japanese were never the best in Asia, let alone on global stage prior to this.
Many would probably agree that the Americans let it slipped in the final; they dominated the match but in the end it’s the scoreline that mattered. Congrats to Japan.
