Women's World Cup 2011: USA Vs. Japan, Start Time, TV, Online Streaming

The USA Women's Soccer Team will be looking for an unprecedented third FIFA Women's World Cup championship Sunday afternoon when it takes on Japan in Frankfurt, Germany. The match will be broadcast by ESPN beginning at 2 p.m. The match will be streamed live on ESPN3.com. The match will also be broadcast on ESPN Radio.

The USA has won the championship each time it has reached the finals, the last time in 1999.

"We’ll be looking to control possession," said USA midfielder Carli Lloyd. "We want the ball and we want to win by playing good football. I’m absolutely confident we can do that."

The USA is led by striker Abby Wambach, who has 12 career goals in World Cup play, matching the total accumulated by Michelle Akers of the USA during the 1990s.

The USA is favored to win, but even USA keeper Hope Solo acknowledged that Japan is the "sentimental favorites" following the devastating earthquake in the country earlier this year.
