    No game today, what am I supposed to do with my life?

    So gutted for Japan. They played the best football of the entire tournament yesterday.

    Obviously I'm happy the Dutch are through to the next round, but yes: Japan would have more than deserved the win.

    The penalty decision was correct, though. The ball hit her arm, which she was waving around for no good reason other than (instinctively) blocking the shot.

  • Saw the English WNT referred to as The Lionesses - was not familiar - best name ever.

    Yep always been Lionesses. Three lions on the shirt and so on.
  • Quick lead - let's see how long it stays this way.  French keeper really blew that one.

    Just caught up with the match. England would have been underdogs against either side, but on that showing I’m honestly pleased to be playing USA rather than France. Much like Japan the other night, I don’t think the best team won the game.

    I burned one of my emails to get another trial YouTube tv to watch the game. Great stuff, it's funny how quick a game goes by, especially compared to every other sport.

    Megan "Legend Killer" Rapione is awesome.

  • I wonder if England knows what hotel they will be in next, if they win Tuesday.  It appears to know such details are an offense to your opponent.
    Elisa
  • That first goal was almost certainly due to US spies at the English hotel.  And the celebration, outrageous.

  • Is Rapinoe hurt? Why isn’t she playing?

    Announcer saying that questions to USA not being answered

    Next goal crucial. USA get it and the game is done, England get it and things might be interesting.

    So Press could start - worked out ok so far!

  • Off sides is so stupid.

    People were saying Rapinoe looked gassed towards the end of the last game, and the next day she had one of her legs wrapped up / taped up.  She's 34 yrs old.  Not no spring chicken anymore.  Having a fresh Press in there seems to make sense.

    it was a good save, she had a great read on it. But it was also a pretty shitty kick

    Dreadful penalty, mediocre save. USA certainly the better team for most of the game. Hopefully the Netherlands step up their game and go through tomorrow because Sweden won’t be any kind of competition. If I have to endure England in a third place playoff then I at least want a competitive final to enjoy the next day lol.

    England ladies share the same curse as their men do....can't score from the penalty spot :(
  • It appears we got this WC locked up, but next world cup is going to be a whole different ballgame, parity between teams will be at an all time high.

    A dreadful penalty only requires a mediocre save.  Spectacular would have been impossible on that attempt.  Of note to this thread - Naeher did not leave the line early to make that save.

    I'm enjoying the fact that Alex Morgan's tea sipping celebration looks like she's miming smoking a zoot in the still images. If Netherlands win tonight and somehow beat them on Sunday I'm anticipating lots of photoshop memes lol.

    So what was up with Rapinoe in the end? Just a plain old injury? They were being so mysterious about it I thought it was going to be something weird.

    Just a knock and precautionary decision to rest  Rapinoe.
