Great Result for New Zealand! 2-2 is a highly respectable result against a top ten ranked team

NZ could've won. They led 2-0 till the last 20 mins.

Its not a great result for Canada, but we got the three points. A tie result between New Zealand and Japan is also great for Canada, since its now likely that Canada could get to the quarters even if they lose there next two games.

I am absolutely stunned about the USA. I realize Abby Wambach isn't there, but the USA won 4-0 twice this year (With Wambach scoring a goal in each game). The commentators were extremely stunned. With one of them shouting at the first goal "Oh my gosh!" & then not saying anything for a while after the second one before saying "I am practically speechless." (She is a former player). The other commentator was trying to remember the last time the USA trailed 2-0 or even the last time they gave up a goal so early in the game or when someone even scored against the USA. Thank God Japan & New Zealand tied.
