Morgan surprised me in that she is much better target forward than I thought she would be. She held up the ball well and got a few wicked shots off. And that high boot is a stone cold foul, if not a yellow card, anywhere else on the field. She was within her rights to go down.

MY DAD IS AN OLD SOCCER GEEK FROM BACK IN THE DAY WHEN IT WAS HUGE AT LIGHTHOUSE FIELD IN PHILLY.

HE WENT TO GIRARD COLLEGE, (HOME FOR FATHERLESS BOYS) HIS ENTIRE CHILDHOOD, THEY WERE BIG TIME SOCCER. CITY CHAMPS EVERY YEAR.

MY POINT AFTER THAT RAMBLE IS HE SAID NO WAY BACK THEN IT WOULD HAVE BEEN A PENALTY KICK, THAT KIND OF STUFF HAPPENED A DOZEN TIMES A GAME. HE THOUGHT SHE WAS TRYING TO KICK IT OVER HEAD BACKWARDS AND JUST PLAN MISSED IT.

HE THOUGHT IT WAS A BAD CALL BUT EXTREMELY HAPPY THEY SCORED ANOTHER GOAL.

You can make the case that our Julie Ertz is the most important player on the field for the US and I bet a lot of the players would agree. She does the most thankless job on the field, defensive midfielder screening the back four, responsible for transitioning for defense to offense to free the six attackers. She’s the smallest player on the field and always goes 90 minutes.

Default They really need to start yellow carding that.

The rule is on the books. Thing is, it's like hop steps/travelling in the NBA. You see it called about once a month in all instances.

Then again, in South and Central America referees will die after making that call.
