Freedom Wins, Confed Update
Rebecca Moros scored in the 83rd minute as the Washington Freedom (4-3-4, 16 points) reclaimed second place in WPS with a 1-0 victory at St. Louis (4-4-2, 14). Abby Wambach left in the 41st minute with a leg injury for the Freedom, which has registered two consecutive shutouts after allowing 18 goals in nine matches. [UPDATE: Wambach strained a hamstring and will be re-evaluated Monday to help determine whether she will be ready for Wednesday's match at Boston.]
Euro champion Spain (3-0-0, eight goals for, no goals against) completed its waltz through Group A with a 2-0 victory over South Africa, which also advanced to the semifinals by finishing second with a 1-1-1 record. Iraq (0-1-2, no goals for, one allowed) and New Zealand (0-2-1) played to a 0-0 draw. The Spaniards will return to action Wednesday, probably against Italy or Egypt. Bafana Bafana will play Thursday, probably against Brazil, depending on tomorrow's results.
