I also really enjoyed watching Japan beat Germany in front of the Germans. roflmao.gif Japan is due to have something to cheer about.  They've had a tough time of it lately with disasters and all.  Love to see USA win the cup again but would like to see Japan almost as much.

Another nice match for the ladies!

France has come a long way but the US is really starting to gel. Which is good 'cause they'll need it against Japan.

Someone made an awfully good prediction. In sticking with my tradition so far I pick the team with the more physically attractive players to win...(you can figure out which team that is on your own).

There's been so much talk lately about Women's Soccer lately, that this Women's Football has been completely overshadowed!  Somebody brief me on what's been going on.

I have to say I really liked the refereeing at the match. This referee didn't seem to have the control issues that the lady from the Brazil match did. If there was a foul she smiled when talking to the players and the players respected her. The other match the referee seemed to assume that any and every slight was completely intentional and that the only reason they were doing it was to test her authority as an official. She had been constantly yelling at and lecturing players even when no fouls had been committed. Today the ref was all but unnoticeable except when she had to pull a red card for the intentional foul in the 120'+, as it should be.

Japan wanted it more.  No doubt about it.  They never gave up and hung around waiting for the US to make a dumb play... then another one.. then another one.  All the while the US wasn't capitalizing on the numerous opportunities they had all day long.  Well done Japan ladies.  I'd rather have lost to them than anyone else.  At least we didn't lose to France LOL!

It seemed like divine intervention when the US could not get numerous quality opportunities to score a goal or six. It was definitely the best the US played during the tourney, for most the game, until some sloppy passing and mistakes opened the door a crack for the Japanese players to take advantage off. I'm bummed for the US women, but happy for the Japanese. All in all a great match and tournament to watch. Megan Rupinoe was my favorite on the US team. Rxcellent spark and set ups. Great job US women and congratulations to Japan.icon14.gif

 

The Japan women played the most beautiful soccer of the tournament.  Hopefully, the US will get a clue all the way down to youth soccer, that individual ball skills, sharp passing and creativity is where it's at. Spain's men are number one for the same reason.
