—————-

"How much mutual respect is there between the U.S. and Japan? So much that there were genuinely warm hugs and a group picture with the two teams between their press conferences at the Olympic press center. So much that U.S. goalie Hope Solo, who proudly states she isn’t friends with players on opposing teams, makes an exception for her pal, Japan captain Aya Miyama. So much that U.S. midfielder Megan Rapinoe says the Japanese players say "Sorry! Sorry!" after they commit fouls on the field."

I just LOVE this friendly rivalry between the US and Japan!
