Bloody, but unbowed

Hope Solo, the U.S. women's goalkeeper, wears a small silver medallion around her neck with a quote from William Earnest Henley "I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul".

Those are the last two lines from his poem, "Invictus".

Anyway, in today's Four Nation's opener, it was defender Kate Markgraf paying the price of pain as the U.S. women battled to a scoreless draw with Germany.

Markgraf is one of the few holdovers on the team from the glory days of 1999 and the Rose Bowl.
