AS NANCY Armour (“US stops Brazil on penalty kicks,’’ Sports, July 11) wrote, the Megan Rapinoe to Abby Wambach combination was clearly “one of the most thrilling goals in US history,’’ and may someday be compared as equal or surpassing the suspense and difficulty of the Flutie-Phelan miracle in 1984. As many sports commentators are reporting, the match was among the finest in World Cup history, and serves as yet another reminder that Team USA is a national treasure, the most successful American team ever.
