Wednesday with a 3-1 win over France. It’s the Americans first trip to the World Cup final since winning it in 1999.

Lauren Cheney got things started early for the U.S. finding the back of the net in the 8th minute, nabbing the lone goal of the first half.

France came out and scored the first goal of the second half in the 55th minute, but the United States wouldn’t be denied as Abby Wambach scored her third goal of the tournament off a corner kick, giving her three goals in the tournament, and her 12th of her career, tying her with fellow American Michelle Akers for third on the all-time World Cup scoring list. Alex Morgan put the icing on the cake in the 82nd minute, the first goal for the World Cup rookie.

The United States will face Japan for the World Cup title Sunday in Frankfurt after Japan defeated Sweden 3-1 in the second game of the day.
