Locals travel to Montreal for women’s World Cup semifinal

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Several Capital Region soccer fans traveled to Montreal on Tuesday for the women’s World Cup semifinals.

The U.S. will compete against Germany for the semifinals. More than 100 people packed into a pair of buses headed to Montreal for the game.

“I told the group, I said, it’s a once in a lifetime experience,” Tim Farrell said. “To be able to go to the World Cup, being in North America, so close to Albany where we are, it truly is a once in a lifetime experience.”

“I wanna see, like, a lot of play, and I don’t want any yellow cards cause last time we had that, and it didn’t go over well, and I want them to score and win a lot,” Ashley O’Hara said.

As for the yellow cards, Megan Rapinoe and Lauren Holiday are back in the lineup after being suspended for the USA’s quarterfinal game.

Tuesday’s matchup pits number one against number two with Germany having one of the best attacks against the U.S. with one of the stingiest defenses.
