As it stands, it appears that the United States and Japan are headed for extra time in the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup final, as Japan have found a second half equalizer through Aya Miyama. After 81 minutes, the score is tied 1-1 and the two teams seem destined for an extra period. USWNT fans won't be happy, but between a bad refereeing decision and the USA's poor defending, the goal was very much deserved.
Shortly before Alex Morgan's goal, Japan had a breakaway incorrectly stopped when the linesperson flagged for offsides. When Morgan scored there seemed to be a small sense of injustice for Japan, but they've equalized, setting up a potentially great finish. The goal came when Rachel Buehler and Ali Krieger both failed to make seemingly manageable clearances, leading to Miyama finding the ball at her feet for a tap-in.
