why the FUCK was a 20 year old taking the last penalty!
even when she put the ball down you could see it happen a mile off.
sasic's penalty was totally sic. the french gal looked so nervous. she was always gonna miss.

You guys definitely controlled the game, without creating too many clear-cut opportunities. I was actually surprised to see that statistically China had more possession (51-49) given the US' level of dominance.
I love a good header too!

I'm finding hard to see past Germany atm. I think the fact that they have a second opportunity (they really didn't deserve to win that game), will spur them on.

yeah if we win this tournament it's on the backs of saurbrunn and johnston (especially her - she's been immense). krieger/klingenberg have also been excellent. solo hasn't had much to do since the australia game but she's obviously very good as well

That was a lovely piece of play from Canada - they should have scored.

I don't know how long I'm going to last though, this time difference is killing me.
And then the goal comes!

Lol, that match was just weird.

For the majority of first-half we were very un-England like, with a nice two-goal lead and generally looked really dangerous. Our keeper is a real liability though. After they got a goal back we were hanging on for dear life.

Bring on the semis.

women's team are amazing what are you on about!!
you should follow some of them on instagram cos then it's clear how much of a family they are, all have eachother's back, and all just want to do as best they can for the team.

So Ive been watching some of this girly soccer stuff. I'm impressed.

The skill is incredible. There was a run by a girl from CH today that was exquisite.

I think it is easier to watch because they look like blokes though.......

i've only seen the odd copa match, and i prob won't see the final because it's on America day

only saw sporadic bits of the u20 world cup, because all the games were at 3 in the goddamn morning
