We haven't had this advantage on Japan since the Great Marianas Turkey Shoot

They should really only play in stadiums void of light

Too bad that Japanese goalie had the shadow in her eyes. Otherwise she would have stopped that 5th goal

The other stadiums used in this series have not had this design or sun issues

As the day goes on there is less sun in the second half. Advantage to the team that is not there first

The announcers have mentioned it several times

"Hope Solo is lucky that sun has moved on and does not have to worry too much about it."

Well the announcers are idiots, too

Obviously sun in the eyes can have a negative effect. But it's not like they only play in fucking domes. I think all these players have had to deal with sun and shadows before.

It's a complete non issue. Like deflated footballs, only dumber.

I asked Kato Kaelin on Twitter and he says the US will win.

you can not understand one goal keeper having the sun in their eyes and the other not as being an advantage in a one off championship game?

Minimal effect, if any.

These women are the best at what they do in the world. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say they've played with the sun in their eyes before.

Japan fell behind because they couldn't keep up with the pace. Not because they didn't wear sunglasses.

I do agree not a big effect

In another stadium, I would expect USA to win, but perhaps not as big


A small advantage can make a difference

I think Canada got put out because of this stadium and the sun

They should have played this one someplace else, then you and every one watching on TV would not have had to hear anything about this one goal keeper having the sun in her eyes.

Why stop there?

Wind tends to only blow in one direction, which could make shots harder for one goalie. Especially if the winds die down at half time. So let's get rid of wind.

The crowd could be significantly louder on one side of the stadium than the other, so let's get rid of them, too.

One linesman may call a tighter game than the other.

They should really just simulate every game on a computer to make sure nobody gets any disadvantages.
