The U.S. Women's World Cup 2011 team will advance to the finals after defeating France 3-1.

It is the first time that the U.S. women's soccer team will move to the World Cup final, as it last won the title in 1999.

The U.S took the lead over France as early as the ninth minute with a goal from Lauren Cheney. France equalized in the 55th minute, but Abby Wambach broke the tie in the 79th minute when she scored a header from a corner kick lined up by Cheney.

World Cup rookie Alex Morgan sealed the deal in the 82nd minute sending the U.S. team cruising to victory.

The Americans are now set to play either Sweden or Japan in the World Cup final at 2:45 p.m. EST on Sunday in Frankfurt.

Sweden defeated U.S. team in the group stages and to go head-to-head once more would give U.S the chance for a comeback and World Cup victory.
