The slim lead was slipping away. One England goal was disallowed because of an offsides call. Then U.S. goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher stopped a penalty kick. Finally, England lost a player to a red card. Despite playing without their injured captain Megan Rapinoe, everything went right for the defending champs and they charged into the World Cup final for the fifth time. The U.S. will face the winner of today's semifinal between the Netherlands and Sweden Sunday in Lyon, France.
