Transcript for Olympics 2012 Update: Carli Lloyd, Hope Solo Lead Team to Gold
who knows exactly how they're feeling this morning. Olympic medal winner and analyst for espn, julie fouty. I'll bet you've been smiling for the last 24 hours. This is a game that lived up to the hype. Oh, my goodness. Did it ever? And you heard about the redemption factor from last summer. And it's all the players talked about. And so, to come into this game and go up two goals. But then, japan scores about the 63rd minute. And they have 30 minutes, the united states has to hold on to finish it off. And you could feel it this time, george. You could feel it. It's as if we're not going to let what happened last summer happen again. And the u.S., Victorious in the end. And thanks to two wonderful goals by carli lloyd. That's what I want to ask you about. The theme is redemption. And for carli lloyd, too. She wasn't even a starter this summer. Exactly. This is her second olympics. She's played in two world cups. She's a veteran. But she came into these games actually on the bench, which is an unfamiliar position for her. There was an injury to shannon box early in the third game. Carli lloyd comes off the bench to have a phenomenal tournament. And to score those goals, she was like a woman possessed last night. Almost like a woman scorned. She was. And how about hope solo? So many amazing saves. She had a great game, as well. You can't just point to one or two players. With carli and hope coming up in the 83rd minute. Less than ten minutes left. Japan gets a wonderful look. And hope is there. That's what you want with goalkeepers. She had a quiet game, in terms she didn't have to make a ton of great saves. But in a big moment, she comes out with one of the hugest saves of her life and saves the win for the united states. No question about it. I can only imagine all the young women all across america getting inspired. Four goals in a row coming up? I'm sorry, julie. I guess you can't hear me. Sorry, george. One more time? How about four golds in a row? Four golds in a row, yes. Why not, right? You have alex morgan at 23 years old. You have cindy lareau, another young kid, at 22 years old. Lauren cheney, 24 years old. I think the future of this united states team is definitely bright. Even when you have players, the core of their team, in their 30s, THERE IS A GREAT, YOUNG Group coming behind them. Four golds. Why not, george? Thanks, julie, very much.
