6. 2011 Women's World Cup
Just about every American game in the tournament was a heart-stopper. The most memorable moment came when Abby Wambach's header in stoppage time of a quarterfinal game against Brazil forced penalty-kicks. Team USA won in PKs, handled France in the semifinals and lost a heartbreaker to Japan in the final. Regardless, at no point did the run lack drama. (AP Photo/Marcio Jose Sanchez)
