That was an epic performance by Sinclair. I've seen her play a few times for the WNY Flash and she's an incredible player.

Guys I'm not trying to be anti-patriotic here. I was literally sitting on my couch, watching the game, hoping we would make it to damn penalties so that we could pull out a W. But that call was not the reason we lost. Sinclair was damn amazing, but we only had one of her, and the US team had 4 or 5 girls like her.

That call changed the game completely. I have witnessed goalies hold the ball way longer than that with no call. Yet we get made example of in the last 10 mins of the semi's....brutal call and we have a right to be pissed!!

Sinclair has around 142 international goals or something. A record.

They do not have 4 or 5 Sinclairs.

Wambach has that many. They do have a great team. But the win was stolen still with the reffing.

What a game. Sinclair was stellar but she was not woman of the match.

Woman of the match: The referee

Sinclair got 3 goals but that ref was an all star today for the Americans. Really carried them tonight. Especially her whacky free kick in the 80th that made less sense then a polar bear getting eaten by an ant.

What a valiant effort by our women. They deserved a much better fate. The reffing was awful for the whole match. It was almost unbearable. But nonetheless, we should be proud of our Canadian women. I definitely know who I want to be our flag bearer at the closing ceremony. Hint: She's from Burnaby.

Of course the US has a great team but they don't have 4 or 5 Sinclairs as that other poster said. No doubt they have at least one, although Wambach didn't have a huge impact on the game. Alex Morgan did.
