GOAL! Rapinoe gets her second.

If you thought the olimpico was good, Rapinoe’s second goal was better.

The chance shouldn’t have been a chance, really. It started with a Christen Press cross that should have been easily handled in the center. But the first Australian defender couldn’t get the job done, and Alanna Kennedy’s second effort was a sliced clearance that spun in the air toward Rapinoe on the left side of the area.

Watching the ball fall, Rapinoe waited and waited, sized it up and then swung a mighty right foot at it and — boom!— sent a shot past Teagan Micah before the goalkeeper could even shift her feet.

A rocket of a finish, and a 2-1 lead for the United States. And if you thought Rapinoe was feeling some joy before, you should see her now.
