The fans in Wolfsburg had bitten their nails to the quick and time was running out in the Women's World Cup quarterfinal. That's when Karina Maruyama struck. The Japanese forward found the back of the German net in the 108th minute and the Nadeshiko, as the team is known, held on to score a stunning upset, knocking the host nation and two-time defending champion Germans out of their own tournament, 1-0, in extra time.
