  • Soccer-Early onslaught left Japan with no way back

    Reuters - 1 minute 12 seconds ago

    * Japan fail to recover from four early goals * Coach Sasaki says "proud" of team's effort (Adds quotes) VANCOUVER, July 5 (Reuters) - When your game is built on possession and suffocating the opposition, the last thing you want to do is concede an early goal -- let alone four inside the first 16 minutes as Japan did in the Women's World Cup final on Sunday. Frozen by stage fright and overwhelmed by a fired-up United States side, Japan were never in the contest once they fell behind and eventually handed over the title they had won so brilliantly four years ago by a humiliating 5-2 margin. Coach Norio Sasaki had said on the eve of the final that a good start was vital for the reigning champions and he surely could not have conceived of the nightmare that would unfold before his eyes at BC Place.

  • Investors lower Samsung Electronics second-quarter expectations amid S6 doubts

    Reuters - 21 minutes ago

    By Se Young Lee SEOUL (Reuters) - Doubts over the sales prospects of Samsung Electronics Co Ltd's new flagship smartphones are damping expectations of a rapid turnaround for the South Korean giant, even though profit likely continues to recover from last year's troughs. After peaking in mid-March as favorable reviews for the new Galaxy S6 models boosted earnings hopes, the company's stock price has languished and was down nearly 6 percent for the year as of mid-day trade on Monday. Supply shortages for the curved-screen S6 edge and economic headwinds in Europe and China have lowered expectations.

  • USA parties like it's 1999 after World Cup win

    Reuters - 25 minutes ago

    By Daniel Kelley DELRAN, New Jersey (Reuters) - There were only 200 people at Ott's Tavern in Carli Lloyd's tiny hometown of Delran but it probably had the most raucous celebration among the scores of Women's World Cup viewing parties held around the country. It didn't hurt that the United States captain scored three goals in the first 16 minutes -- including a jaw-dropping shot from midfield -- en route to a 5-2 win over Japan in the championship match in Vancouver. With each goal the tavern erupted, not in the chants of "U-S-A, U-S-A" but with "Car-li, Car-li." The win secured the United States' third World Cup and first since 1999.

  • U.S. usher in new era of dominance with World Cup win

    Reuters - 41 minutes ago

    The United States ushered in a new era of dominance with their Women's World Cup triumph on Sunday, a victory that will do plenty to bring an already passionate American interest in the sport to unprecedented levels. By crushing Japan 5-2 on Sunday, the United States not only captured a title that has eluded them for 16 years but also avenged their 2011 final defeat against the same opponents. The U.S., who also won the gold medal at the 2012 London Olympics, are now the only country with three women's World Cup titles to their name, having previously won in 1991 and 1999.

    Reuters - 41 minutes ago

    By Simon Evans VANCOUVER (Reuters) - Carli Lloyd led from the front as the United States won the Women's World Cup for a third time with a crushing 5-2 victory over Japan on Sunday, the striker scoring the tournament's fastest ever hat-trick, including a spectacular long-range goal. Japan, winners four years ago, were utterly stunned as their opponent's deadly finishing ensured the U.S. added to their 1991 and 1999 titles and became the first nation to win the Cup three times. The game, played in front of 53,341 spectators at a packed BC Place, was the highest-scoring Women's World Cup final ever and, for non-Japanese at least, was an entertaining finale to what has been an excellent tournament.

  • FIFA officials booed before World Cup trophy ceremony

    Reuters - 1 hour 15 minutes ago

    By Simon Evans VANCOUVER, (Reuters) - FIFA officials were booed by the crowd before the trophy presentation at the Women’s World Cup final which was won 5-2 by the United States against Japan. Despite FIFA president Sepp Blatter staying away from Canada during the tournament and choosing, for the first time, not to present the trophy, the largely American crowd made clear their feelings about the scandal-hit governing body. The stadium announcer asked the crowd to welcome FIFA ‘dignitaries’ on to the field and the group of around 10, led by FIFA vice-president Issa Hayatou, head of the Confederation of African Football, were greeted by loud boos.
