Georgina Turner: U.S. women favored against Japan

This is the World Cup final that nobody predicted. Plenty felt that the U.S. could and would make it to Frankfurt on Sunday, though that belief was stretched to its limits along the way. Not many had Japan making it through Germany's half of the draw, though. In the five previous World Cups, the Japanese had won just three matches, and had never beaten European opposition. In the past three weeks, they have won four, and defeated Germany and Sweden. This magnificent trajectory has won the hearts of neutrals and helped to make the final one of the most nerve-tinglingly anticipated matchups ever.
