London, England – Going into play today, the United States women were already assured a birth into the knockout round which will take place on Friday at 8:30 am EST with their opponent to be determined. Meanwhile, the North Korean side needed a draw, which could also be considered a tie, to move onto the semifinals. The North Koreans were only interested in hurting the United States players and they were given three yellow cards and one red card (which is the disqualification of a player). The North Korean woman who was disqualified injured Lauren Cheney from Indianapolis. The only goal of the morning came from Abby Wambach from USA. The rest of the game was about the United States strong defensive effort and 31 year old Hope Solo. Stay tuned for more soccer coverage.
