Texas Two Step

The United States Women’s Soccer team are going to the semi-finals of the CONCAFAC qualifying for the Summer Olympics in Brazil.   They defeated Costa Rica 5-0 on Wednesday and this evening defeated Mexico 1-0.     The Mexico match was very tough because it was a defensive battle.  Carli Lloyd scored in the match in the 80 minute after a very questionable handball in the penalty area.  She would score on the subsequent penalty kick, and on Monday they take on Puerto Rico.    Despite dealing with a possible strike against U.S Soccer for improvements in pay, travel, and field conditions, plus dealing with Zika virus and other health issues in Brazil.    This team will contend for a gold medal in Brazil and the way they are playing right now opponents better be prepared.
