This is going to come down to the goalies, as The U.S. (#2) and Germany (#1) have the 2 best in the game.
Germany goalie Nadine Angerer has been spectacular, with 9 saves here so far and 3 goals allowed overall.
Germany is also coming off a grueling 5-4 win over an impressive French team, which should give a boost to their confidence and momentum going into this match.
However, the U.S., coming off a 1-0 win over China has goalie Hope Solo, who has been almost perfect in these games- which gives them a bit of an advantage.
Solo has only allowed 1 goal in the first half of the group-stage opener against Australia.
Since then she’s posted 4 straight shutouts and hasn’t given up a goal in 423 minutes; she also leads all goalies with 11 saves.
Historically, the U.S and Germany’s have faced off 4 times before in World Cup play, with the U.S. holding a 2-1-0 edge; the U.S. Women’s National Team is also the only team to have appeared in all 7 World Cup semifinal games.
I’m picking the U.S. over Germany 2-0.
