Some good football being played but there are countless times where players are being caught in possession and the ball is easily taken off them

Very poor goal defensively, there are good things happening and I’m more engaged with the ladies game than I was before. One thing is very obvious though, the better teams are far far away in advance of the weaker sides

Not a bad game to watch in all honestly, I do think that there will be lots of chances later in the game as the legs tire in the heat, there was a lot of running done in that first half

Have to say the female co commentator slavers more rubbish than even the worst male commentators.

Le Sommer had a shot at goal and they said, " she's had a great game"
Le Sommer gets subbed a couple of minutes later. "she's been very ineffective"

When there's two commentators they end up having a conversation rather than giving a commentary on the game. I switched off the commentary on the England-Norway match after 10 minutes and enjoyed watching the rest of the game on 'mute'.

I would say the best commentator at the WWC is Robyn Cowen. She has a well-modulated voice and doesn't screech which can be an issue with some female commentators. She is knowledgeable about the game and the players without giving the impression she is dishing out information for the sake of it the way some commentators do. My only quibble with her last night was when she said 'England' had qualified for the Olympic Games.

England 1 USA 2

The story for England's women seems familiar, rather like the men have done in a semi - so near but so far. They had a second "goal" given offside by a toe, missed a penalty (why not take a longer run up, get to the ball at speed and Tommy Gemmell it? Bronze should've taken it.) Then had a player sent off. Could've - should've got to ET. Overall did well but ultimately frustrating.

Up until tonight England got the rub of the green with VAR etc. When things started to go against them they lost their discipline. I can never understand why a defender takes a penalty, especially when there's a prolific striker like White on the park.

The better team did win Al, but England were close to nickin' it. If Emma White had held her run by about 0.01 of a second to avoid offside and they'd not missed their third penalty in a row.

Can now get on with supporting whoever the USA are playing without any worries. Was in a bit of a quandary over this one.

Better team won, but England's goal was a cracker. The technique to steer that in as the ball came across her was perfect. I'd be happy if we saw a goal that good at East End.

England struggled with basic passing and gave the ball away too much.

The USA just looked more streetwise and physically stronger as the game wore on.

The PK was executed awful

It was a fairly decent game and I think if USA had rapinoe fit to play the gap might have been a little wider as much as she splits opinion with her political stuff she can actually play

You've got to admire English optimism. They were expecting to win the European Nations Cup, all the under-age tournaments this summer and the Women's World Cup. Now all they are left with is the cricket World Cup. They rarely expressed a note of caution in the run-up to these competitions despite previous disappointments.

Is this optimism - or delusion?

To me, England are just another foreign football team that I don't support.
Like any game, will see who they are playing and decide who I'll 'support' for the game. I say 'support' because I don't really care who wins.
Last night it was America who I thought were all a bit up themselves, so wanted England to win (although agree with the poster above who said that when they didn't get all the decisions, they lost it a bit so best team won)
Don't get the earlier post about "even Germany or the Argies"... Not sure if the '2 world wars and 1 world cup' sentiment exists up here? I've never heard it and h happen to like both those teams. In fact when I used to play football had both their tops.
Anyway, not sure about tonight's game, but whoever wins I'll be rooting for them in the final

The thing about the English media is that they tend to forget they are broadcasting a cross the whole of the uk and we don't all share their fervour and sense of superiority

Perhaps if they just occasionally recognised that there are another 3 countries viewing who may not want an English win (ok there are some factions around Scotland who do actually support the English cause)

It’s the sense of injustice in defeat and the total disbelief that winning every tournament they enter is not a certainty as soon as qualification is achieved

The English ladies played well as did their male counterparts last year there’s no questioning that, it’s the media and the pundits who make your stomach churn on every occasion which leads to people wanting them to fail and fail miserably

I suppose the anti-Germany and Argies thing is more English than Scottish - based on the German superior attitude - what I've heard anyway - that Germans abroad seem more than a tad selfish. Plus their machine-like ability to outlast most teams at fitba' and get the rub o' the green. As for the Argies it's mostly based on the Falklands War plus "hand of wee fat cheat." So yes I have been influenced by hearing opinions of English workmates and wife! But some of that aside, I don't think there's much logic in hating your neighbouring country, (which is part of GB (don't know about you but, come the Olympics, I'm a GB fan) - and siding with or prefering others that you've had wars with quite recently.

I'm not saying I don't have prejudices ( I think I'm revealing some)- it's an interesting topic and just questioning myself about it and trying to get to the bottom of it is quite difficult.

I think I can see your side of it DBP. I suppose if you look at Germany and Argentina in purely football terms, it makes sense that you might want to prefer them. I guess if you support the teams you like watching the most, then it's a simple matter of taste and nothin' to get antagonistic about.

Bottle. Yeh it's like in tennis when they're serving for the match and double fault, three times in a row. I guess Scotland's women needed a wee bit more when they were minutes from qualifying from their group.
But how d'ye get it? Why, if you're short on bottle, is it so hard to acquire?

Isn't it just holding your nerve at critical moments or periods and staying focused and relaxed enough to get the job done?

I'd say Scotland lacked more than just bottle though... Their effort and heart cannot be denied... But effort and heart will only take you so far.
Their managers tactical mistakes didn't help either to be fair to them.
To win a tournament you need it all... Skill, talent, guts, tactical awareness, probably some more attributes that I don't know about seeing as I'm not a professional footballer... and a slice of luck can come in handy too.
Or.. You could just send a team out to defend for most of the match like Greece did in the 2004??? (I think) Euro finals.
What were the odds of them winning the trophy at the start of that tournament again?
And they had never won a game in any tournament before they euros (or something like that).
So it can be done apparently. 🤣

Yes and of course Leicester didn't buckle under pressure on their run-in to the title, but you could say Liverpool did when they had a seven-point lead.
Subconsciously were they thinking "job done" and got over-confident?

As for Scotland women you can't really say they lacked anything to get out of their group except the ability to hold on to their lead against Argentina. They'd done what was needed attack-wise. Should then have switched to a heightened defence mode? Wouldn't that be down to coaching - "How to see a game out?"
Or is it a bit like taking penalties, something more is needed besides just practice? You need practice under intense pressure and you can't get much of that.

As far as the Olympics go, if we were to field a team at footie representing GB and the whole team was Scottish I would want them to lose because they are team GB

Scotland should never accept that the football team in the olympics should be a United Kingdom as a whole team (no matter how often FIFA assure us it won’t affect our individuality as a nation)

As far as the other sports go I probably don’t really mind Scottish Athletes representing GB but I would not go overboard cheering on nor against an English competitor

Hopefully in the Future we will be able to have an independent Scotland in the Olympics

As far as the other sports go I probably don’t really mind Scottish Athletes representing GB but I would not go overboard cheering on nor against an English competitor

Hopefully in the Future we will be able to have an independent Scotland in the Olympics


Really 1970par,

Did you want Andy Murray to lose his 2 gold medals because it was under the British flag,

Chris Hoy has a falkirk handful , mmmaaahhhh team GB, Katherine Granger, Heather stanning, Scott Brash, Tim Baillie.
God forbid they won thier Golds in London.

It disnae matter what flag they won the medals under. They are Scottish Olympians. They weren't competing under St Doads flag, it was under the union Flag.

East End Park is a symbol of all that is DAFC.
