Thailand were a joke last night, the gap in skill between teams in the womens game is insane, all usa had to do was know how to play football. i dread to think how bad the teams thailand beat to get there were. literally anyone could have done better in goal, for all the 13 goals, maybe 2 were any good. i did enjoy the game though, we all like goals and that was fun to watch. Rapinoe stood out for me but the entire team looks good, sweden game will be interesting

The 12th, by Morgan is a great finish. Takes a touch and then places it between two defenders into the top corner. Keepers unsighted. Even the best mens keeper won't get near that.

Actually might have been the 11th I was thinking of. Think the 12th was the sub going round the keeper.

i know the oone you mean, lifted shot top left between the defender, the one im thinking of is the turn and left footed shot across goal took it past 2 defenders

 

 

EDIT, its goal number 8, and its right footed lol

Just watched the USA-Thailand highlights and I know the Thai team aren't pros and I know it's a bit of a meme with women's football but surely they can find someone better in goal?  She doesn't seem to have any kind of basic goalkeeping skills at all:  Slow reactions, soft wrists, hardly any horizontal movement on the rare occasion that she dives... I'm not sure I've ever seen a worse display in a 'professional' setting.

Alright Hope Solo.

If I was the Thai keeper and someone asked me how the match went, I'd just tell them that i made 7 saves. 

 

France vs Norway tonight is probably the biggest matchup so far.

So the Beeb hired Hope -- a nice turnaround, given how US networks want long-retired Brits on their studio teams.  She's not known for her cuddly charisma though.  How is she doing?

 

here is my favorite pic of Ms Solo.  Not only for her impressive arms and shoulders, but because Sepp isn't looking at her delts.

What a shocking VAR decision for a penalty. Defender plays the ball then catches the diving frog. You can see the ball ping away after the Norwegian kicks it. Proves one thing, VAR won't stop 'homer' referees.

The thing is, once you have that confidence that you gain during a match where you notice that the opposition is no match plays a major part in being able to pull off such a move.

 

The difference in skill made it all possible.

Anybody see the aussie winner? Looked offside for me

Looked offside to me too.

 

Happy for the Matildas though, despite that.

2 Questions

 

So why have Brazil Women got a load of Stars above their badge when they've never won the Women's World Cup?

 

Why are the commentators comparing the goal scoring exploits of women players with the men like Miroslav Klose with 16 WC goals.

 

Surely the 2 sports and their relative achievements should stand alone.

 

Just a thought.

1 - Most women's kits are basically a female version of the mens kit.

 

2 - It is pretty irrelevant comparing caps/goals between male and female players. Nobody compares Serena Williams' grand slams to Roger Federer's so I dont get why the same logic would apply between the men and womens world cups.

1. I understand that but they shouldn’t have the stars on, what happens if the England’s Women win the World Cup will the men and women have 2 stars on the shirt?

 

2.  Agree that’s why I queried it.

 

Dont misunderstand me I quite enjoy watching the games but this blurring of them is annoying.
