VANCOUVER---Japan clearly was
not ready for Carli Lloyd.
Lloyd scored a hat trick in the
opening 16 minutes on Sunday to
help give the United States a 5-2
victory over Japan for its record third
Women s World Cup title.
The game Sunday night at Van-
couver s BC Place was a rematch of
the World Cup four years ago when
Japan prevailed after a penalty
shootout for the nation s first cham-
pionship in the premier women s
Leading up to that victory in Ger-
many, Japan had been deeply scarred
by the deadly earthquake and tsuna-
mi. The national team gave the
country reason to cheer, and the
players were welcomed home as
A win on Sunday would have
made Japan just the second team to
repeat as World Cup Champions
(Germany, 2003 and 07) in con-
secutive World Cups.
But it wasn t to be.
Lloyd, awarded the Golden Ball
as player of the tournament, scored
twice in a span of about 135 seconds
as the US led 2-0 by the fifth
Lauren Holiday boosted the lead
in the 14th and two minutes later
Lloyd made it 4-0 with an audacious
54-yard, right-footed shot from
midfield that sailed over goalkeeper
Japan closed on Yuki Ogimi s goal
in the 27th and an own goal by Julie
Johnston on an errant header in the
52nd. Tobin Heath scored two min-
utes later, the third goal off a restart
for the Americans.
"If you look at the overall per-
formance it was very rare in terms
of the probability that we could win
today," coach Norio Sasaki said after-
ward through a translator.
Lloyd, a 32-year-old midfielder,
had come up big against Japan
before, scoring the winning goal in
the 2012 Olympic final.
"Ms. Lloyd she always does this
to us. In London she scored 2 goals
and today she scored 3 goals. We
are embarrassed," Sasaki said. "But
she is an excellent player but I really
respect her and admire her."
The Japanese arrived in this year s
final with a dramatic---and for the
English, heartbreaking--- semifinal
After England outplayed Japan
for much of the second half, a charg-
ing Laura Bassett inadvertently
directed the ball at the net and it
ricocheted off the crossbar for an
own goal in the final minute of stop-
page time, giving Japan a 2-1 win.
The victory set up the rematch
with the United States. Japan, ranked
No 4 in the world, has met the sec-
ond-ranked Americans three pre-
vious times at the World Cup, with
the United States winning two
matches before the final in Ger-
Overall, the US team is 25-1-6
Japan s team was boosted prior
to the final by the return of mid-
fielder Kozue Ando, who broke her
left ankle in the World Cup opener
Andro returned to Japan for treat-
ment, but came back to Vancouver
to cheer on her team in the final.
Throughout the tournament, a
white Teddy bear wearing Ando s
jersey has been a constant feature
on Japan s bench in her honor. It
was there on Sunday.
The match was also emotional
because it was likely the last appear-
ance with the national team for
Homare Sowa, who was the 2011
FIFA player of the year after leading
Japan to the victory over the United
States in Germany.
Sawa was awarded the Golden
Boot as the tournament s leading
scorer with five goals, and the Gold-
en Ball for being the tournament
after WC loss

GENEVA---The official chosen by FIFA
to inspect 2018 and 2022 World Cup
hosting candidates was banned from
soccer for seven years on Monday for
breaking ethics rules.
FIFA s ethics committee gave no reason
for its decision to suspend Harold Mayne-
Nicholls, a former president of Chile s
football federation who is disputing the
"I will appeal to higher courts estab-
lished in FIFA statutes and TAS (Court
of Arbitration for Sport)," Mayne-Nicholls
said. "I wonder why FIFA publishes a
sanction that has outstanding resources,
as this may be modified by higher courts."
Mayne-Nicholls said the ethics com-
mittee prohibited him from speaking
about the details of the case in public.
He has previously spoken to some
media about conversations he had in
2010 with officials in Qatar about possible
work placements for relatives at the Aspire
Details of that case were also published
by a website last year, which obtained a
leaked e-mail sent to Mayne-Nicholls
by Cornel Borbely, who heads the inves-
tigation chamber of FIFA s ethics com-
Mayne-Nicholls was considering
standing in the FIFA presidential election
when his ethics case was reported last
Instead, he is barred "from taking part
in any kind of football-related activity
at national and international level for a
period of seven years," the ethics panel
said in a brief statement.
FIFA ethics judge Joachim Eckert
chaired the panel which conducted a
personal hearing for Mayne-Nicholls.
Eckert s statement said "more detailed
information will be given after this final
decision becomes effective."
Challenges to FIFA s appeals committee
and subsequently to CAS typically take
around one year.
Mayne-Nicholls was appointed by
FIFA in 2010 to lead a six-member team
evaluating the 2018-2022 World Cup
bidders. All nine candidates were visited
between July and September 2010.

TURIN---Italy playmaker Andrea
Pirlo joined Major League Soccer
club New York City FC from
Juventus yesterday, little more
than a month after winning a
fifth consecutive Serie A title.
Pirlo spent four years at Juven-
tus after joining from Serie A rival
AC Milan, and helped it to the
Champions League final this year.
Juventus lost to Barcelona, missing
out on a treble after winning the
Italian Cup and the league title.
"It s difficult to put what I feel
into words, especially as it involves
four such important years of my
life," the 36-year-old Pirlo wrote
on his official Twitter account.
"I can only say a huge THANK
YOU to everyone who has accom-
panied and supported me in this
adventure ... A heartfelt thanks
to all of you."
Pirlo has won the Italian league
six times, including in each of the
past five seasons, as well as the
Champions League twice. He also
helped Italy to the World Cup title
"It has been an honor and a
privilege to have shared these four
fantastic seasons with Andrea and
all associated with Juventus Foot-
ball Club wish him the very best
for the future" Juventus said at
the end of a lengthy statement.
"Thanks for everything, Maestro,
and good luck."
