Do You Believe In Miracles?

And that, folks, is why you never give up in sports. You never stop hoping, you never stop watching, and most importantly, you never stop playing - because you just don't know what might happen.

There was simply no way that the United States could win this game - down a goal, down a player and well into the stoppage minutes of extra time.

And then, a miracle. A perfect assist from Megan Rapinoe, and a perfect header into goal by Abby Wambach. PKs.

And after having a stop taken away from her earlier in the game, you just knew that that this one was going to come down to Hope Solo. And she didn't disappoint, with a save to seal the deal for a most unlikely U.S. victory.

The clips will be shown for a long as people watch and coach games. Never give up - always do your best - always play until the final horn.

Because you just never know when a miracle might fall into your lap.
