England leaving out Dowie and Jess Clarke is folly.

anyone else? canada's goalie looks competent

strangled whelps (imago), Saturday, 6 June 2015 22:20 (five years ago) link

incredible red ponytail on one of the defenders too

strangled whelps (imago), Saturday, 6 June 2015 22:30 (five years ago) link

i swear canada's goalie just shot from a free-kick on halfway

strangled whelps (imago), Saturday, 6 June 2015 22:46 (five years ago) link

ponytail'd defender is kadeisha buchanan, already a world cup hero and it seems a damned good centre-back to boot

strangled whelps (imago), Saturday, 6 June 2015 22:46 (five years ago) link

if the opening game ends up being 0-0 it's not exactly going to do wonders to hold a homeland audience which I imagine is made up of curious ice hockey aficionados

irish co-commentator all 'i don't think the ivory coast know the offside law'

europe vs africa again, let's see how eurosport's irrepressible co-commentator manages to offend everyone this time

oh it's a different co-commentator. but she IS the chelsea manager so

this will not be 10-0

sweden have ian harte at left-back, i.e. can't run, can't really defend, best set-pieces in the tournament

the discussions, the slanging matches, the banter, the lot (imago), Monday, 8 June 2015 20:24 (five years ago) link

might be 10-0 if they score with every corner

nigeria have dominated this

It's fine, they've got two easier games coming up to get the points. Oh.

Injury time winner for Mexico ruled out, a diabolical decision. Great to see the women's game attaining the same standards as the men's in one area at least.

trying to keep the ball in the corner when you're 3 goals up in injury time = pure, pure savagery. the true heart of this usa team revealed

dan m, Monday, 6 July 2015 00:55 (five years ago) link

was kinda boggling at that xxp

5-2 is a scoreline which resonates down the ages and is probably a reasonable summation of the game, in that it followed the pattern of every first-half bloodbath ever

rahrah avis (imago), Monday, 6 July 2015 07:56 (five years ago) link

Reasonable damage limitation effort from Japan, after beig 4 down in fifteen minutes, but Jesus, those fifteen minutes...

Can't understand how a team with that sort of experience, full of world cup winners and olympic finalists can possibly freeze like that. Wouldn't be too surprised if it comes out that there was some Ronaldo-in-1998 type clusterfuck prior to the game.

three weeks pass...

on sunday i went to a national women's soccer league game. it was really fun, plus much better quality than the majority of the world cup games that i caught on tv. Seattle Reign v Portland Thorns, so a derby game. world cup winner megan rapinoe plays for seattle, christine sinclair was up front for portland. $15 a ticket, so economical. a franchise record attendance of over 6000 were there. the crowd contrasted with most men's sporting events you'd go to in that it's mainly women, families, and there's lots of gay couples. nice change from the rowdy-hetero-bro vibe. 3-0 win for Seattle, i managed to miss the final 2 goals waiting to buy kettle-corn :/ but for sure would attend regularly if i lived in a city with a team, maybe they'll expand to vancouver one day.

I've been to a few Chicgo Red Stars games, otm as far as crowd composition, but less ppl overall at their games. Christen Press is a great player, and Julie Johnson in defense is like retroactively awesome bc the games I went to were all pre World Cup.
