Once again, poor set piece defending has been the undoing of France at the 2011 Women's World Cup. Though Les Bleues have dominated the possession, the United States now have the lead for the second time in their semifinal matchup, thanks to some fantastic execution on a corner kick. Abby Wambach was the scorer, and she's now tied with Michelle Akers for most goals by a USWNT player in World Cup play.
Though France's marking wasn't great on the corner, it would be unfair to take anything away from Wambach or the corner taker, Lauren Cheney, as both executed their ends of the set piece perfectly. Cheney delivered a floating out-swinging ball towards the far post, while Wambach made a great looping run from a deep position. She got to the far post right as the ball did and hit a powerful header into the back of the net, scoring her third goal of the tournament.
