USA Women beat Brazil 2-2 on Penalties

Holy Hell. That football match was the finest thing I've watched in a long long time. Unreal sequence of events.

2' OG Brazil, US takes 1-0 lead.
65' Red Card to team USA (Buheler), Brazil to take PK and USA will be down to 10.
67' Hope Solo makes an incredible (legal) save, is called off the line or encroachment and will rekick.
68' Marta puts the second shot in the back of the net after Hope Solo gets a yellow. 1-1
90' Full time. Going to Two, Fifteen minute extra periods.
92' Marta is probably offsides, but puts it in the back of the net. 2-1 Brazil
105' end of 1st period, fifteen more to go.
122' In the most unbelieveable turn of events, in stoppage time of extra time, Maria Rampione puts an excellent cross on the head of Abby Wambach to tie it at 2-2 and send it to PKs
PK Diane A (3rd PK) saved by Hope Solo
PK Alex Kreiger (Former Nittany Lion) makes it 5 for 5 USA PKs to take the win.
