女足世界杯:美国队三捧冠军

经过52场、长达一个月的较量,2015年女足世界杯7月6日早晨在加拿大第三大城市温哥华落下帷幕,美国队没有让四年前在德国世界杯上的一幕重演,她们在90分钟内以5比2战胜了上届冠军日本队,成为历史上第一支第三次夺得世界杯冠军的球队,这让美国队继续保持着在世界女子足坛的霸主地位。

从2011年在德国进行的世界杯开始,这是4年内美国队与日本队在世界杯和奥运会女足决赛中的第三次较量。2011年日本队首次夺得女足世界杯冠军后,第二年美国队就在伦敦奥运会女足决赛中,以2比1击败日本队,扳回一城,6日是双方第三次在大赛的决赛中相遇,这也意味着参加本届世界杯决赛的是近4年以来整体实力最强的两支球队的一次世界杯决赛。上届冠军日本队在前6场比赛中全胜,成为决赛前唯一一支全胜的球队,而美国队前6场只丢了一球,成为防守最稳固的一支劲旅。

In a repeat of the 2011 final, which Japan won on penalties, the Nadeshiko could not live with their stronger and quicker opponents, who went 4-0 up when Lloyd scored an astonishing third from the halfway line.

The American midfielder put the 1991 and 1999 champions two goals up within five minutes in a stunning start to the match.

Lauren Holiday volleyed in after Azusa Iwashimizu's woeful header and Lloyd then caused pandemonium among the huge contingent of US supporters inside BC Place when she lobbed Japan goalkeeper Ayumi Kaihori.

The 2011 winners retaliated thanks to a Yuki Ogimi strike and a Julie Johnston own goal, but Tobin Heath made it 5-2 before 60 minutes had elapsed and despite further pressure, English coach Jill Ellis's USA side held on.

The majority of the 53,341 fans inside BC Place erupted in joyous celebration at the final whistle before Confederation of African football (Caf) president Issa Hayatou, standing in at the final for Fifa president Sepp Blatter, presented the World Cup trophy to former captain Christie Rampone and veteran striker Abby Wambach.

Chants of "U-S-A" reverberated around the ground when they lifted trophy.

The pulsating finale to an entertaining tournament was the highest-scoring final in the tournament's history, and matched the highest scoring men's final, when Brazil defeated Sweden by the same scoreline in 1958.

Japan, who made it to the final after beating England courtesy of Laura Bassett's own goal, were outclassed from the start and could not cope with the USA's set-pieces.

But they also suffered from a familiar foe as Lloyd added to the two goals she scored against Japan in the 2012 Olympic final between the two teams.

Her third-minute opener was the quickest goal in a Women's World Cup final as she latched onto Megan Rapinoe's perfectly directed corner. The 32-year-old added another after Japan failed to clear a free-kick.

It got worse for Norio Sasaki's side when Iwashimizu gifted Holiday a goal when her clearance header merely looped up in the air and the USA midfielder took advantage.

Lloyd's wonder goal, which completed a first Women's World Cup final hat-trick and made her the tournament's joint top scorer along with Germany's Celia Sasic, appeared to have ended the game as a contest.

Such was the manner of Iwashimizu's display that the Japan defender she was withdrawn after 33 minutes to be replaced by former captain Homare Sawa, who was competing in her sixth World Cup.

 Although former Chelsea forward Ogimi turned and fired in before the break and Johnston's second-half own goal gave Japan hope, Heath took advantage from more poor Japanese defending to score the USA's fifth.

Japan were determined not to give up as substitute Mana Iwabuchi caused problems for the US defence. But they could find no way past a resolute US side, who became the first team to win the Women's World Cup for a third time. (source:BBC)
