Olympics 2012: US Women Defeat Japan in Redemptive Gold Medal Football Game

Could women's football fans possibly hope for a better gold medal match-up than the US and Japan? Ever since last year's heartbreaking World Cup Championship against Japan, Team USA's been chomping at the bit for redemption at the London Olympics. During Monday's white-knuckle match against Canada, it started to look like gold was slipping from America's grip, and that much-desired redemption wouldn't come. But, of course, they made it to Wembley Stadium for today's gold medal game.

Team USA never gave up during that competition with Canada, and they obviously had no intention of backing down from Japan, either. What team would be more satisfying to beat than the one that took the 2011 World Cup?
