England need to improve their passing to beat a Norway.  Long passes also invariably concede possession.

Third goal from the corner was well-worked by the 2 Liverpool players.  Very quick-thinking.  Very similar to the goal Liverpool score at home to Barca.

Great team goal by the Crapauds*

* probably incorrect spelling for feminine form

Whilst the French and Brazilian girls were in the warm up Brazil's number 10 Marta looks like she spent the time in make up.

Quoted from Grim74
12 pages of women’s football FFS the football season can’t come some enough.


Does anyone want to start a Cricket World Cup thread?....the Lincoln and Hull football forums are already doing one

Another entertaining game. Glad France won cos Brazil looked like they were a bit inclined to follow their men’s attitude and whinge and roll too much (though not half as bad).

Not much of the little cheats that most men’s teams pull either like stealing several yards on a throw in or ‘re-positioning’ the ball on a free kick the odd yard forward. Brazil, again, more likely to do this than others.

That Beatriz looked a real handful though. Strong and a persistent pest.

I think the reason VAR has been highlighted in this tournament has a lot to do with the standard of the officials.

This has resulted in more incorrect decision and therefore the need to use VAR more fequently.

I must be bored if I'm reading a page of this thread, perhaps will watch the final if England get there, maybe the semi. But when I've flicked through the channels and seen it briefly the fare on offer has been atrocious - no speed or power.

Im all for women developing the game and far from sexist but a bit overkill how it's been thrust on us. For example the women on panels commenting on the mens game, no offence but they seem pretty clueless in the main.

And this wanting parity with the wages of the men is ridiculous. When they generate the same massive global interest, attendances and viewing figures then yes of course. But that way off, it's just nowhere near as exciting or entertaining.

"Sweden's women's national football team suffered a crushing defeat during a friendly in Stockholm on Tuesday, with the country's top female players finding themselves shutout by an undermanned local boys team."

"What happened to girl power? Australia's national women's soccer team the Matildas lose 7-0 to an under FIFTEENS boys' side"

Way off, way way off.

Have you got the links for those articles Rik? I’m interested in how the men’s and women’s games stack up against each other.
