Yeah, England taking over now. They're a lot stronger and faster and Norway looks tired.

Norway continuing its depressing goddamn tradition of just not being good enough. Ugh.

And now I have to worry about this USWNT lineup. STOP STARTING ABBY WAMBACH (maybe she will score again now that I've said this).

Announcers are being awful negative for us having just won

To be fair, Jill Ellis is a really bad manager and the US attack should be more dynamic. But the announcers went a bit overboard.

Also, memo to Colombia;

Well... at least we didn't lose? The offense looked a lot more fluid when Wambach was subbed out. Wonder if there's a correlation.

Scoring against the US defense looks nearly impossible too.

CARN 'TILDAS~!

I admittedly know sweet FA about women's soccer, I'm assuming knocking off Brazil is as big a deal as it would be in the men's yeah?

Not as big a deal as in men's (they're more one of the best second tier teams instead of a top tier team) but still a pretty big win for Australia. Brazil were really underwhelming all tournament but it still took a pretty great counter to put them away.

Are the BBC deliberately over-exaggerating the descriptions of their highlights? They said England's winner was a "stunning long range effort" so I watched it... and it really wasn't.

      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.
