(Newser) – One more game to go: The US women's soccer team beat Germany 2-0 to advance to Sunday's championship match in the World Cup. The big difference was this: With the game tied at 0 in the second half, Germany missed a penalty kick and the US then made one, courtesy of Carli Lloyd. Kelley O'Hara added a late goal, and the US held on for the win. The women will play the winner of tomorrow's match between Japan and England.
