LONDON (AP) -- Alex Morgan's looping header gave the U.S. women's soccer team a dramatic 4-3 overtime victory against Canada. And this physical classic was only the semifinal.
Morgan put the U.S. in front for the first time in the third minute of injury time at Old Trafford. Megan Rapinoe scored in the 54th and 70th minutes, and Abby Wambach in the 80th on a penalty for the U.S.
Morgan's 6-yard header, on a long cross from Heather O'Reilly, went high into the net over goalkeeper Erin McLeod for the winning score.
The Americans overcame a hat trick from Christine Sinclair, who scored in the 22nd, 67th and 73rd minutes for Canada.
