Women's World Cup Can't Post or Reply Privately

Just booked tickets for three matches at Möchengladbach, Bochum and Leverkusen - thought it would be a good chance to see the latter as I imagine it operates close to capacity most of the time.

Apparently all the Germany matches have sold out - good to see the hosts getting behind their team. I also wonder how Equatorial Guinea will fare in their group (with Brazil, Australia and Norway).

Anyone else got any plans to go over for it?

I suspect you may well be doing the same three fixtures as myself?

Brazil vs Australia (Möchengladbach, 29th)
Canada vs France (Bochum, 30th)
Japan vs Mexico (Leverkusen, 1st)

Opener on "Das Erste" at the moment; half time, the hosts 2-0 up on Canada. Angela Merkel's on at the mo trying to convince everybody that she's interested in football.

Not quite all games, but pretty good coverage nevertheless.
However next week the Tour de France starts, so that may interfere with the Women's World Cup coverage, although there are two Eurosport channels.

Nice to see people interesting in this event. :)
Sweden just defeated USA 2-1, in a match that perhaps could have been a draw as USA dominated 2nd half.

I don't recall how England has done, but I sure now you have a great player in Kelly Smith (is her name, isn't it).

Hej Lars

Hur är det?

Don't agree regarding the USA. Think that they play to physically, much like their men's team.

Kom igen Sverige!

Hi! It's quite good, but had been better if England had defeated France. They just lost on penalty shots, being one ahead before missing their 4th and 5th. Great match however by the English girls, including a great goalie. And Kelly/Kellie Smith is just great, even though she stumbled around injured in the 2nd half of the match, after England had already made their substitures.

Heroic performance by the English women.

England and penalty shots... :(

Tommorow it's a big game for the Swedish women!

Re: [Lars] Women's World Cup [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

And Japan beat Germany (1-0, after extra time). Having seen the Japanese play live in the group stages, I had said that I thought they were the best team at the tournament, but in the early stages it looked like the Germans would overpower them. However, they managed to keep them at bay in the first half, and gradually came into the match more, before scoring in the second half of extra time (the German goalkeeper was probably partially at fault as she dived the wrong way to stop a shot at her near post). Apparently it is the first time the Germans have been beaten at a Women's World Cup since 1999, and Birgit Prinz (confined to the bench) did not look like a happy bunny.

In fairness, England didn't really deserve to win. Given the situation in extra time (no more subs and with Kelly Smith clearly injured) I thought they did very well to get through to penalties, but France were the better side.

Even after today's game, they were mumbling on about the lottery of the penalty shootout. Which is clearly crap - it's not a lottery, it's a technique. And when it comes down to a test of technique - as in a shootout - teams from these islands are lacking I'm afraid. If only you could shoulder charge the keeper it would all be different..........Crazy

Probably the most dramatic series of quarter-finals I can remember in an international tournament. Been glued to the tv all weekend - only Sweden's win over Australia could be described as anything like routine.

I'd usually be the last to support the USA in any kind of sporting event, but I was punching the air when they scored their last gasp equaliser, such was the injustice of what had gone before.

I saw Germany-Japan too (on TV). Great team performance by the japs. Reminded me of a very well-known game (for us Swedes) vs Japan in some mens tournament in like the 1930s (no, I didn't watch it live), in which the japs were pretty much everywhere, doing everything to win. It is thought of as the perhaps biggest upset we've had. The japanese girls, however, didn't do THAT big of an upset, even though the Germans were favourites.

Japan is good, especially technically, but they lack size which gives them a disadvantage on corners and inlets.

Sweden has qualified for the Olympics! :) I heard Germany will miss the Olympics, altough I'm not 100 % sure about that.

Kelly Smith is great!

Re: [Lars] Women's World Cup [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

I enjoyed the England - France game and was very disappointed to see England lose. It made such a change from watching the men's team where, these days, I cannot find it in myself to support them with people like John Terry involved. The French team had most of the play but I'm not one for saying who 'deserves' to win - if you don't score goals when you're on top you don't deserve to win anymore than if you defend for 85 minutes. Anyway, I was very impressed by Bardsley in goal for England. Better than most of the keepers who've played for Arsenal men's team in recent years!

I'm disappointed at the level of coverage though. Perhaps its my perception but it seems less than for previous tournaments which is a shame because the football has been good.

Apparently the England game was only (even) shown on BBC2 after some outside intervention:
http://www.guardian.co.uk/...land-women-world-cup


Although the ref made some shocking decisions, I was disappointed to see the US go through last night, largely as I thought it would be hugely beneficial for the women's game for it to be guarateed that there will be a new name to be on the trophy.

Virtually every game has been shown live on Eurosport.
I didn't want the Americans to win either, but Brazil's gamesmanship was unacceptable, especially Erika who feigned injury, had two minutes of treatment, was carried off on a stretcher, then sprinted back onto the pitch. At least she got the booking she deserved, and USA scored in the time added on for her 'injury'.

Sunday's Brazil-USA match marked one of the few times a neutral crowd seemed to be pulling for the Stars and Stripes. The two teams that have impressed me the most consistently throughout the tournament have been Sweden and Japan. France have looked better overall than the USA have. Still, everything can change game to game and and we saw Saturday, minute to minute. Aside from Sweden's win over Australia in the quarterfinals, the other three certainly did not lack for compelling drama. Should be fun to see what happens Wednesday. Just like the quarterfinals, I could see any of the four advancing to the title game Sunday.

Re: [East Fork Utd] Women's World Cup [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

For General information: USA beat France 3:1 in the first semi at Mönchengladbach. 1-1 at half time, with the Americans scoring two in the last 15 mins.

Oh dear; Sweden 3-1 down against Japan with 15 minutes to go. 1-1 at half time, the Swedish keeper forced to play the sweeper on two occasions, only for her to turn back both times to watch the ball roll into the net; the second time from a lob from 10 yds from half way.

And that's how it ended; two Japanese players played the ball around at the Swedish corner flag for the last7 or 8 minutes, and the Swedes couldn't whelk the ball out to put any pressure on the Japanese goal; or half really.

Should be an interesting final though; although I think that American power will carry the day.

Re: [sjosta] Women's World Cup [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

Japan's win over Sweden 3-1 was fairly deserving, don't you think? Like 17-2 in scoring chances (or if it was shots on goal) to the Japanese girls. Total domination.

Let's hope Sweden takes bronze.
Regarding the final, I would like Japan to win, although USA have a Swedish coach.

Don't forget England defeated Japan in the group stage (although Japan already was secure finishing top 2 in the group). Sad to see England lose vs France. Kelly/Kellie Smith is great. The goaltender was good too.
