The U.S. Women's National Team advanced to the quarterfinals of soccer's World Cup on Monday, staving off an upset bid from a spirited Spanish squad to win 2-1. Both American goals came on penalty kicks by Megan Rapinoe, with the second breaking a tie in the 71st minute. The U.S. will next face the host country, France, in Paris on June 28, in what The Washington Post is calling "a dream showdown."
