I have a hypothetical question for the forum to ponder. Suppose instead of the Brazil-USA game being held in Dresden being the quarter-finals of the 2011 WWC on July 10,2011, it was held in Frankfurt on July 17, 2011, as the final game. Suppose it was played exactly like the quarterfinals (controversial red card, retaken penalties, late header by Wambach) and the USA wins the WWC trophy. Would it be remembered as well as the 1999 WWC win by the USA? Would it top the sports stories of 2011? I would say that it would be remembered because of the way it played out and the feeling of the USA triumphant when it seems like the cards were stacked against them. At the very least it would be in people's memories longer than had the USWNT won against Nadeshiko Japan in the finals. I could see the win being the top sports story of 2011, as Nadeshiko Japan's win over the USWNT was the top sports story of 2011 in Japan.
