The top-ranked U.S. women's soccer team lost in the semifinals of the World Cup. The 4-to-zero defeat against Brazil takes the team out of the running for the championship this year. The loss came after coach Greg Ryan made a controversial decision to change the team's goal keepers.

Tony DiCicco is the former coach of the U.S. Woman's National Team and currently an ESPN analyst. He speaks with Melissa about the defeat.
