Tasha scored in the 90th minute – on what sounds like an absolutely brilliant goal (assist from Rampone). This pulls out the 1-0 win for the USWNT who continue undefeated in the 2009 Algarve. Hope somebody posts video of this goal soon – it sounds like a stunner!
“A spectacular late goal from substitute Natasha Kai gave the United States a 1-0 win over Iceland on Friday and sent the defending champion into the final of the Algarve Cup.
Kai received a cross from Christie Rampone in the final minute of the game, deftly flicked the ball over a defender and fired a left-foot volley from the edge of the penalty area into the corner of the goal.”
“The best part was the goal,” U.S. coach Pia Sundhage said. “I’ll try some fresh legs in the next game.” The US faces Norway on Monday and then will play the winnner of Germany v Sweden in the Algarve Final on Wednesday.
Still waiting for that video … ;>)
