The U.S. Women's national soccer team is through to the final match of the Women's World Cup in France.

The U.S. beat England Tuesday by a score of 2-1.  

The victory came after a hair-raising second half.  

An English goal called back due to an offsides call, and later an English penalty kick was stopped by U.S. goalie Alyssa Naeher.  

England's Millie Bright got her second yellow in the 86th minute, leaving England short-handed for the rest of the match.

The final match will take place on Sunday.  The Americans will play the winner of Wednesday's match between Sweden and the Netherlands.
