Soccer: U.S. all the rage after its upset win

-A A +A
By Associated Press

DUSSELDORF, Germany (AP) — The U.S. women’s soccer team shared the Yankee Stadium scoreboard with Derek Jeter, made an appearance on “Good Morning America” and can now count Tom Hanks, Lil Wayne and Super Bowl MVP Aaron Rodgers among their list of star-studded admirers.
Like Mia, Brandi and Foudy more than a decade before them, Hope, Abby and the rest of the Americans have become quite the sensation thanks to their performance at the World Cup.
Now the trick is to keep it going.
The Americans play France in the semifinals Wednesday. Win, and they’ll face either Japan or Sweden in Sunday’s final with a chance to become the first team to win three Women’s World Cup titles.
“It’s overwhelming. It’s amazing,” midfielder Carli Lloyd said Monday morning, still savoring the United States’ epic victory over Brazil in a penalty shootout Sunday night. “The support and buzz back home is really awesome, and I think it’s helping women’s soccer. This could be a huge turning point for the growth of soccer back home, and that’s what we’re trying to do and trying to accomplish.
“Hopefully, as an added bonus, we come back with the cup.”
