It was not all smiles for our ladies in China this morning, as outsiders North Korea earned a 2-2 draw against the US. North Korea actually held a 2-1 lead in the second half before Heather O'Reilly tied it up.
Abby Wambach scored the first goal, but then took a head or elbow to the back of her head and had to go off for stitches. While she was out, the Koreans scored two goals to take the lead. The rain they played in affected the first one, it slipped through Hope Solo's hands. The second was a deflection that fell for the Koreans, and they buried it. The US got their revenge with a deflection that fell for O'Reilly a few minutes later.
Luckily, the other game in the group also ended in a draw, so we're all even going into matchday 2.
If you get a chance, check out the goal Japan scored in the 94th minute to tie England, Mr. Beckham would be proud of that free kick.
