Also England’s defence is shite. Could have been about 4-0 down after like ten minutes. Just carved open so easily.

Alex triggered Piers Morgan, so really, in a way, we all won.

Except Piers Morgan, but fuck that guy.

Good game, and the more disciplined side won. I thought the pen was really really really really soft - so much so I oddly wasn't that gutted when it was saved. The offside was close but is what it is.

I was proper choking at Pearce being like “BAHUGNAHJGNWHAT FUCKING FOUL WHAT’S HAPPENED? REF? PEN? CUNT GIVE A PEN”

Then the other, coherent commentator goes "Just misses it doesn't she" and he's just calmly like "Yep."

To be fair she changed her mind two seconds later after seeing the other angle.

England’s women’s football World Cup defeat to USA was the most-watched British television broadcast of the year, with the success of Phil Neville’s team opening up the sport to new audiences. A peak audience of 11.7 million tuned in to watch the end of England’s 2-1 defeat on Tuesday evening – more than the peak live audience for the finale of the hit drama Line of Duty. An average of 10.3 million Britons watched the entire match – although the figures do not include the many people who watched it via the BBC’s online streaming services or those who watched in public spaces or pubs.

Think it was pretty clear that a good side was going to punish our defensive frailties, but I thought we were excellent for the most of the second half and were obviously so close to getting a draw. Pen was crazy soft. Ellen White was so unlucky with that second goal. But definitely lost our heads after the sending off, stopped doing all the things that were clearly working. The standard of football we were playing was so much better than four years ago, though. Plenty of positives to take. 

Also, while it is totally what you do to win games and see 'em out, it was a shame to see the Americans throwing themselves to the floor and play-acting in the last fifteen mins, in which was otherwise a really great game. The USA are clearly a better team and obvs far more street-wise. Was quite happy to see Nikita Parris have a go when they were fucking around in the corner, though.

Was really disappointed not to see more of Leah Williamson. She's the best defender in the champions of the WSL who's game is built around playing out from the back...something Phil Neville claims is the "non-negotiable" England style. 

Anyway, all this means is I can happily support the Netherlands. Miedema and van de Donk are so damn good and I'd love to see them against USA.

Solo just utterly shot down Gabby Logan's idea of reaching out to tall handball and netball players to become goalkeepers. Lols.

Karen Carney has announced her retirement from football to bring to an end a distinguished career for club and country.

The Chelsea and England midfielder will sign off after the Lionesses conclude their Women's World Cup campaign against Sweden in Nice on Saturday.
She said: “I am incredibly proud to have achieved so much in the game but now is definitely the right time to retire. To have played for England was my ultimate ambition and to do so at four World Cups and represent Team GB at a home Olympics was beyond the wildest dreams I had when first starting out.

“I would like to thank everyone who has made this all possible from my family and friends, everyone I have played for and worked with and, of course, the England squad and staff. I owe everything I have to all of them.”

Gianni Infantino wants to expand the Women’s World Cup finals to 32 teams from 24 in 2023 and double the prize money to $60m (£48m).

Before Sunday’s final between USA and the Netherlands, the Fifa president said he would take his proposals to the Fifa council and member associations for approval.

“I want to expand the tournament to 32 teams,” he said. “We will have to act quickly to decide if we are to increase it for 2023, if we do, we should reopen the bidding process to allow everyone to have a chance or maybe co-host. Nothing is impossible.”

Infantino hailed the tournament in France as “the best women’s World Cup ever” and said it was an opportunity to build on the game worldwide with a number of proposals.

“[I would like to see] a Club World Cup for women starting as soon as possible next year or the year after,” Infantino added. “We need a Club World Cup which can be played every even year to expose clubs from all over the world, to make clubs invest even more in women’s football to really shine in a world stage.”

Infantino also said Fifa would increase its investment in the women’s game to $1bn over the next four-year cycle and spoke of wanting to create an international women’s league, with promotion and relegation, to help the World Cup qualification process.

“Sometimes qualification for the World Cup is just based on one tournament, sometimes not even that … This will ensure we can raise the standard all over the world,” he said.

It was definitely only a yellow. Correct call, correct use of VAR. Really tough game thusfar.

god, Rose Lavelle is fucking great.

      SQUADS
      The Guardian's complete guide to all 736 players at the 2018 World Cup
      The complete guide to all the stadiums
    • By ChrisSteeleAteMyHamster
      We've got a month until the World Cup! So exciting!

      Anyway for some reason the BBC suddenly posted news about Japan's squad because Shunsuke Nakamura (the ex-Celtic player) has been recalled.
      However the best news is that Kawaguchi is back in the squad as third choice goalie! He's a total legend. A chirpy little Japanese shot stopping legend:


      My local team is Nagoya Grampus and we've got two players in the squad but one is Tulio who hasn't had the best couple of years.


      Is Jesus (Kennedy) in the Australian squad? He's Nagoya's big lanky striker who looks useless for 89 minutes and then bundles in a header in the last minute pretty much every game.

      Anyway, Japan are annoying me because their style at ANY kind of football is to try to dribble the ball into the net (a bit like Arsenal but less successful) instead of one person just deciding to let rip from around the box. If they actually shot from 16-25 yards from time to time they'd actually be pretty decent.

      We have an England thread, but not a general one, so here it is.

      Norn Iron are 1-0 down against Russia with around 25mins to play.

      Wales vs. Belgium is on Sky Sports later, and Holland-Turkey can be watched on ESPN.

      Fully expecting a comfortable Belgium win this evening. Can't see Wales handling them.

      Scotland play Serbia, and Rep Ire vs. Kazakhstan is currently goal-less.
