An anonymous contributor removed the following text:

The USA victory was, however, debatable because the U.S. goalie Briana Scurry allegedly stepped beyond the goal line numerous times before the Chinese players actually kicked the ball.

Can anyone find any references to this? --StuartBrady (Talk) 13:43, 27 September 2006 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:23, 19 March 2008 (UTC)

Third place match[edit]

I have removed the (aet) notation on the third place match, an edit that I had made previously but was reverted. Per this reference, extra time was not played. -- Filliam H Muffman (talk) 03:32, 17 April 2012 (UTC)

Venezuela flag[edit]

This is an extremely minor issue I realize, but the use of the 8-star Venezuela flag in the "Match officials" section is anachronistic. That flag was only introduced in 2006 after Chavez had been in power for a few years. It should instead be File:Flag of Venezuela 1930-2006.svg, as detailed on Template:Country data Venezuela. -LtNOWIS (talk) 16:04, 2 January 2013 (UTC)
