Good News and Bad News.

Good News: The US won! Yay!


Bad News: Megan Rapinoe and Lauren Holiday both received consecutive yellow cards, and will be suspended for the United States’ Quarterfinal match vs. China.

Rapinoe’s yellow card was a rather questionable decision, as Colombian players were diving/faking injury all over the field to the point that Shakira is going to change the lyrics in her “Hips Don’t Lie” song to: “Let me see you dive like you come from Colombia.”

After a scoreless first half, Alex Morgan was taken down by Colombian Goalkeeper Catalina Perez in the box…

…the Colombian national was shown a red card, sent off, and the US was given a penalty kick.

The results of said penalty kick by Abby Wambach were … well, how do I put this nicely? … horrible.

Have no fear, Alex Morgan is here…

Carli Lloyd put the game away with a second penalty kick…

…and it was a wrap from there.

The United States takes on China this Friday, 7 PM EST, on FOX.
