Defense Comments
The defense did get jumbled a bit too often and had a couple of scares but Sauerbrunn and Dahlkemper kept their cool and took care of it. O'Hara was critical in handling the wing as well.

Coaching Comments
The strategy changed throughout the tournament and that is when they began to concede a few goals, but overall it was there: score, score, score again and then defend like no other in the last 15 minutes.
