IVff , ill 1 Comeback win builds confidence By Susan Bickelhaupt GLOBE STAFF FOXBOROUGH -Canada had made rrilTilli Tl two trips to the Women's World Cup but had never made it past the first round. Until yesterday. The Canadians came back from an early deficit to defeat Japan, 3-1, before 14,356 at Gillette Stadium to advance to a quarterfinal matchup against the winner of today's China-Russia match. Japan, which had won only one match in the three previous World Cups, opened this tournament with a shutout win over Argentina last weekend, then was shut out Wednesday by Germany. Yesterday, the Japanese came out aggressively and were the first to score. Homare Sawa was knocked down in a collision with Canada's Charmaine Hooper in the 18th minute and was carried off the field, but apparently she suffered no lingering ill effects. Back on the field two minutes later, she took a cross from Yayoi Kobayashi and slammed the ball into the net, just to the left of goalkeeper Taryn i y a r- i, t - i South Korea's Jin SukHee and Norway's Marianne Pettersen (11) zero in on the ball. Norway surges toward US WOMEN'S WORLD CUP Continuedfivm Page CI Rapp at forward, combined well with Mellgren in attack. Most of the Norway goals were produced from the left side, Mellgren beating Kim Yu Jin to cross to Gul-brandsen in the fifth minute, then taking a low cross from Pettersen for the second goal in the 24th minute. Mellgren converted the third in the 31st minute, and Pet-tersen's 40th-minute score gave Norway a 4-0 advantage. Seven minutes into the second half, defender Brit Sandaune capitalized on a poor clearance to volley in a 30-yard shot for the Norwegians' fifth goal. Kim Jin Hee scored the South Koreans' first WWC goal in the 75th minute, catching goalkeeper Bente Nordby far off her line in a defensive mixup. But substitute Linda Ormen added goals in the 80th and 90th minute as Norway poured on the offense in an attempt to win Group B and avoid the US, which will win Group A with a tie against North Korea in a Join with 1 SMI?" 'ia ?m$)mxiv t Jj. IN i Christine Latham (2) took a fall after a tangle with Japan's Homare Sawa, but in the end the Canadians stood strong. Swiatek. But Canada, proving that its youth was not a detriment, soon came alive. Christine Latham, who played for the San Diego Spirit this season and was named the Women's United Soccer Association Rookie of the Year, took a pass from Christine Sinclair and tied the game in the 36th minute. Sinclair, who recently finished her freshman year at the University of Portland, then put the Canadians ahead by scoring off a corner kick by Brittany Timko in the 49th minute. Columbus, Ohio, today. "The US is a very good team and has a lot of players from 1999 and the 2000 Olympics," Steen said. "They have scored a lot of goals on corners and free kicks and penalties. We must stop them on dead balls." Steen continued to ease back midfield leader Hege Riise, who is recovering from April knee surgery. Riise replaced Klaveness in the 81st minute and has played 29 minutes in the tournament "She could play more in the next match," Steen said. "She is about 90 percent" Norway is the only team with a winning record (18-16-2) against the US, and Riise has played in most of those matches. "I am not 100 percent but I am close to it" Riise said. "I am not fit to play 90 minutes, but, hopefully, as the tournament goes on, I will be.' - yf.,, ' '.v;:;;;:f ; "This was an important game for us to be successful and score goals. We needed players who want to win and we needed to for- a Budy 3 1 fr:;KM: At NSi GLOBE STAFF PHOTODOMINIC CHAVEZ Kara Lang, who is 16 and still in high school, completed the scoring in the 72d minute. When the match was over and the Canadian players linked arms on the field, coach Even Pellerud couldnt resist celebrating as well, as he jumped up and down on the sideline. Pellerud, who coached Norway to the World Cup title in 1995, acknowledged that his team wasnt confident entering this tournament. The Canadians had won nine of their last 10 matches, but GLOBE STAFF PHOTODOMINIC CHAVEZ get about Brazil. The good thing about this team is we always fight back after we have had a bad game or whatever." The Norwegians are clearly not at the top of their game, as they were in winning the '95 Cup in Sweden and the gold medal in the 2000 Olympics. The US has a strong team, and they will have a full stadium Wednesday," Riise said. "They are tall, physical, technical players, and they have speed. Hopefully, we will find a way or two ways to beat them. "It has been a close race between Norway and the US. We have always been rivals, and that will go on for a long time. It's good for soccer because every game is filled with passion." The Norwegians, though, are in transition. Nordby and Riise have returned from retirement in an attempt to regenerate the team. "The US will definitely be a tough game, but we have beaten them before and we can beat them again," said Mellgren, the all-time leading scorer in the WUSA. "This is almost like coming home for me, and I felt a lot of support from the crowd." V - , milllllHIIHIINIItllHimtlllMIIUIIMIMIl Cup schedule Remaining first-round games in the Women's World Cup.

Even after his team blanked Argentina, 3-0, four days later, Pellerud wasnt satisfied. "We have been in trouble," he said after that match. "We had great momentum, and we needed to regain the mental balance and get up to speed again." ' After yesterday's match, Pellerud said he could see a change in his team as soon as the players took the field. "You saw from the first kick that our shape was much better and the intensity was higher," he said. That didn't prevent the Canadians from falling behind. "I was frightened when Japan scored first" said Pellerud. "It was not one of our best games, but it was good enough." Lang agreed. "We were not playing our best soccer in the past two games, and although this was not the prettiest game, we played our hardest," she said. "We left nothing out there on the field." Pellerud had no complaints. Today meant we would either go west to Portland Ore. or go home to Canada," he said. For the first time in three World Cups, Canada will be homesick gladly. World Cup roundup Meinert sparks Germans ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON - Maren Meinert, the former Boston Breakers forward who was this year's Most Valuable Player of the Women's United Soccer Association, had two goals and two assists as Germany completed a perfect first round in the Women's World Cup yesterday by dominating Argentina, 6-1. Germany (3-0) easily won Group C, outscoring its opponents, 13-2, and will play the second-place team from Group D in the quarterfinals Thursday in Portland, Ore. Argentina (0-3) was outscored, 15-1, in its first World Cup. German midfielder and World Cup veteran Steffi Jones left the game in the 62d minute with a right leg injury. There was no immediate word on her status for the rest of the tournament It was obvious from the third minute when Meinert volleyed in Kerstin Stegemann's cross from 10 yards that the rout was on. Bettina Wiegmann made it 2-0 with a penalty kick in the 24th after Birgit Prinz was fouled. Prinz then had the most spectacular goal of the game, a half-bicycle kick from 10 yards that nestled just inside the right post in the 32d minute. Meinert got the assist on Prinz's fourth goal of the tournament Meinert, who came out of retirement from international play for this World Cup, scored again in the 43d minute with a 20-yard drive that left goalkeeper Rornina Ferro standing still. Argentina got its first World Cup goal in the 71st minute on substitute Yanina Gaitan's volley from 20 yards. German substitute Conny Pohlers scored in the 89th minute, and substitute Martina Mueller finished the scoring in injury time. France 1, Brazil 1 The Brazilians won Group B and likely avoided a quarterfinal matchup with the defending champion United States by virtue of a tie. Brazil (2-0-1), which will play the second-place team from Group A in the quarters, showed the youthful flair so often displayed by the men's team in the first round, scoring eight goals and allowing just two in three games. Katia scored her fourth goal of the tournament in the 58th minute, capitalizing on a rare error by otherwise outstanding goalkeeper Celine Marty. Marty, who made two superb point-blank saves on Katia in the first half, hesitated as she and Katia charged to meet a long ball from Maicon that bounced at the top of the box. Katia had the momentum to chip in the half-volley for the game's first score.
