Women's World Cup: USA up 1-0 at Halftime Over Brazil

In what has been a very tense, but disjointed match so far, America is up on Brazil 1-0 after Brazil mishandled a shot by Shannon Boxx and deflected the ball into their own goal.  That was just in the second minute of the game, and was a critical mistake by the Brazilian goalkeeper who attempt to punch it out rather than just catch it.

So far the American defense has managed to keep Brazil's ball magician, Marta, under control.  This has seemed to rattle the Brazilian forward, who received a yellow card late in the first half for an emotional outburst that she is sometimes known to have on the pitch.
