DRESDEN, Germany (AP) – The Americans are moving on to the semifinals after one of the most exciting games ever at the Women’s World Cup — winning 5-3 on penalty kicks after a 2-2 tie.

Abby Wambach scored a thrilling goal Sunday to tie it in the 122nd minute, and goalkeeper Hope Solo denied the Brazilians again.

The U.S. made its first three penalty kicks, and Cristiane and Marta easily matched them. But then it was Daiane’s turn, the same Daiane who’d given the U.S. a 1-0 lead with an own goal in the second minute. She tried to go near post, but Solo batted it away.

The U.S. still had two more to make, but Megan Rapinoe buried a blast and Ali Krieger converted hers, too, sending the Americans racing onto the field in celebration.
