The “American Dream” happened in Vancouver, almost four years ago. The United States Women’s National Team finally reconquered the World Cup on a sunny afternoon, beating Japan 5-2. The american champions ended a 16 year long wait and also had their “sweet revenge” versus the same opponent that handed them a major and unpredicted upset in the 2011 final, in Germany.
GoalPoint was just one year old when the US team won their third title, becoming the most sucessfull nation in 28 years of Women’s World Cup history. We were still a couple months away of launching our GoalPoint Ratings algorythm.
Four years later GoalPoint is not only still around but able to look into the past and find out that Carli Lloyd would have been a fantastic GoalPoint MVP, with her decisive hat-trick in the final and a lot more data worth highlighting.
