Lunchtime video distraction: 120 U.S. women’s goals in 2012

I cannot exactly verify that all 120 goals struck by United States women’s national team are actually shown here.

I attempted counting, but lacking Jason Bourne-level laser-lock focus, I kept getting thrown off by a couple of quick-fire strikes that looked quite similar. (When shown back to back, they look suspiciously like a quick replay.)

Assuming veracity here, what you are about to see is:

  • Some absolutely awful goalkeeping to begin the sequence.
  • More aerial dominance than I realized.
  • The critical goals from last summer’s successful drive for Olympic gold.
  • All 28 of Alex Morgan’s goals
  • All 27 of Abby Wambach’s

Stay with it through the end; otherwise you miss some of the creative celebrations from 2012. And you miss a chance to remember Sydney Leroux’s awesome burst of emotion following her Olympic quarterfinal clincher.
