USA blanks Germany, advances to Women's World Cup final
Wednesday July 1st, 2015

The United States women's national team defeated Germany 2–0 on Tuesday in the semifinals of the 2015 Women's World Cup, cementing a return to Sunday's final in Vancouver.

Carli Lloyd scored on a penalty kick in the 69th minute to give the U.S. a 1–0 lead, and Kelley O'Hara later iced the win with a goal off an assist from Lloyd in the 84th minute.
