Really can't warm to this USA team. All the diving, moaning etc... 

So, really hoping Holland can pull of an upset here 🏆🇳🇱

I'm warming to Meghan Rapinoe with her views on the White House and it's present incumbent! And she can't half whip a ball in.

Despise it when sportsmen or women. Bring politics into sport. **** off and do what you are gifted at 

Are you not allowed to have opinions, just because you're a sportsman or woman?

Of course you are Dave . But to use you’re position to promote and agenda is a load of bollocks . People want to here about football not some lesbians personal views . There is a time and place. Surely you can see that

Of course you are, it just depends on what platform you are on at the time.

She's at a World Cup. For an international football captain, she's a gobshite.

What I see is a politician trying to gain political advantage by being associated with a successful team, inviting them to meet him at the White House. And a player saying that she has no wish to validate his misogynist, anti-gay, racist, white supremacist agenda by going and doing his bidding. Fair play to her.

Ok Dave we are obviously miles apart . I won’t respond again . Appreciate your opinion

Twice play was stopped due to players banging heads together resulting in treatment needed.

OK, fair enough, but both times the Ref restarted the game with an undisputed dropped ball kicked by the defending team. The first time the ball had gone for a throw in when the game was stopped. How do you explain that decision Ref?

 

America's 2nd  goal - I'd really enjoy  seeing City's strikers emulating that shot.

Well the big show is over. No real surprise the Americans have held sway again, but the general feeling is that the gap between the top nations has closed significantly. In four years time it might be vastly different.

Summing up the whole tournament I think many viewers will have been impressed by the women's game - although the more entrenched views will remain - and that the respect shown is more deserved. How that translates into the national club levels will be seen in time. The real impact will be in the way young girls decide to join a local club and play themselves - just like young boys will have been inspired by the players of their day.

In England's case, we have seen that they have all the necessary to win at the highest platform but didn't quite deliver at all times. Good players, good coaching, good spirit but still a few little weaknesses to work on. There will a bigger spotlight in the forthcoming Euros in 2021 - here in England! Sadly, the nearest venue for that competition will be St Mary's in Southampton.

And as an aside, City Women's opening league fixture is home to Brighton.

Personally I think it’s great when sportsmen/women have something to say politically, they usually talk far more sense than the complete idiots who are In Charge

Exactly how I feel. Not because England lost to them but they are so cynical. And from my viewpoint, they get all 50/50 decisions. Probably not but that's how I feel.

A female version of Colin as their Head Coach?

Really enjoyed most of it. Standard has dramatically improved, some of the passing, control and tricks were sublime. Keepers have generally been very good indeed. VAR needs a serious review itself. Gamesmanship starting to creep in when the stakes were high disappointingly.

England. Despite the massive hype, didn’t enjoy their performances. Have three or so top performers who carried the rest of the team. Bang average though for the most part  and in all matches just switched off for around 20 minutes which is abysmal in a World Cup.

What if she was a flat out right winger spouting anti gay anti migrant stuff, would that "fair play" too ?

Doubt it somehow...

She was playing out on the left most of yesterday's game. Less effective when she drifted to the right, I felt

So impressed by the USA womens football teams stance in refusing to go to the  White House................. as Trump is all about the reflected glory it  would potentially bring him.   Trump then acts like a spoilt brat and accuses them of demeaning the Presidency and American people?   Don'.t u get it You pumped up Dummy?  They are not disrespecting America or the White House.......they are disrespecting You and your misogynist sexist ways you moron!  Instead they get a ticker tape reception in New York from real fans........well done team USA.
