Women's World Cup 2011 Quarterfinals, USA Vs. Brazil: Extra Time Needed After 1-1 Draw

After a wild and eventful 90 minutes of football that featured a couple of goals and some terrible refereeing going both ways, the United States and Brazil are headed to extra time in their 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup quarterfinal match, tied up at 1-1. If the USWNT are going to advance, they're going to have to hold on with a disadvantage, as they're currently playing with 10 women.

Rachel Buehler's red card is making life tough for the U.S. women, but they've actually looked a tiny bit better between the time she got sent off and the whistle for the end of normal time. Pia Sundhage has not replaced her with a substitution, and is instead playing a three woman back line.

Sundhage has made two substitutions, both relatively like for like. Megan Rapinoe has replaced Lauren Cheney, while Alex Morgan has replaced Amy Rodriguez. The USWNT has one substitute left in the bag that they can use to change the game.
