After escaping ‘Group of Death’, U.S. has great chance to make a run

The U.S. Women’s National team managed to survive the proverbial “Group of Death” and survive is absolutely the correct for how they performed in those three matches.

The U.S. didn’t exactly look like the dominating team that came so close to taking the World Cup four years ago. Yes, the defense was much improved, allowing just one goal in the group stage, but the offense was stagnant, scoring just four goals, and a couple of them in the Australia game were quite lucky if you ask me.

But that doesn’t matter now. The group stage is behind and the Americans came out onto of the group, and that has given them a massive advantage on the road to Vancouver over the next couple of weeks.
