    Good start. I enjoyed it.

    Ironically, it's gotten so much better since BM quite their coverage.

    Question about the rules, a cammeronian player kicked a ball to their GK and the GK picked up the ball which is I didn’t know is against the rules. When can a GK pick up a ball and when can’t they?
    A keeper can pick up a header from a teammate, as well as any kind of shot or header from an opponent. They can’t touch a ball that has been deemed deliberately passed back to them by a teammate, they can only kick or head it away. The punishment is an indirect free kick from where ever the keeper touches the ball.

    One of the best rule changes ever imo. I still remember when goalies were allowed to pick up a ball that was passed back to them by their team mate, and that enabled a team to slow down the game almost to a complete stand-still.

    Half the number of matches has now been played during this tournament, and people are still debating last week's match between the US and Thailand. Is that really the only think we are going to talk about here?

    I was hoping to find a lively discussion here about all the teams and the matches that are being played.

    For example:
    1. Which teams have impressed you so far? Who do you think could make it to the final?
      The US women have shown why they are the clear favorites for the title.
      France seems strong, and they have the home advantage. But if they top their group, they will have to face the US before the final.
      Germany, England, The Netherland.... they have all started a bit lack-lustre but are winning their matches.
      I haven't seen Japan play, but I've understood it's a pretty good team.


    2. The penalty that was given to France in their match against Norway: good call from the ref?
      Not a penalty in my opinion. Yes, the Norwegian player kicked the French player, but it was clearly an accident and a penalty seemed way to harsh imo.

    3. Who is the best player of the tournament?
      Vivianne Miedema (Dutch center forward). The Canadian goalie will know what I mean after Thursday :-)

    And now they'll face my Spurs. What a finish in both semis!

    COME ON YOU SPURS!

    Dutch Ajax supporter here, ..... my heart still bleeds after that shock ending.

    Well done Spurs for never giving up, though.
