FAIR PLAYLet’s Not Forget the Women

The women have also had some outstanding goal moments, including: USA player Brandi Chastain against China in the final of the 1999 World Cup. During the penalty kick shootout with China in the title game, Chastain was the last kicker for the United States. When her shot sailed over the diving Gao Hong into the top corner of goal, Chastain gave the USA their second Women’s World Cup Championship. Another great goal was Brazil’s Sissi when she scored against Nigeria in the 1999 World Cup in extra time to advance.
