WWC - England 2 - Scotland 1

Not convinced England will win this tournament, but that'll do.

WWC Canada 1 - Cameroon 0

There was some slick play from Canada, but the fluffed passes don't bode well.

WWC New Zealand 0 - Netherlands 1

Dutchies had soooo many chances, and shouldn't have needed until the 91st minute to score. New Zealand are going to be the dark horse of this group.

WWC USA 13 - Thailand 0

This result illustrates the disparity in investment in women's football by FIFA and national federations.

Indeed, 13-0 shouldn't really be happening in a WC.

It's another case of FIFA's stupidity - 24 teams is too many given the current stage of development, and I wouldn't be surprised if there is another result like this.

I did like this little stat though:

I hope Klopp is saying to Son Heung-min there "Come to Anfield", he'd fit this team.



What a manager. :sweet:

WWC France 2 - Norway 1

France not looking as dominant, and that penalty was a bit dubious, but still a fun game for the neutral.

WWC England 1 - Argentina 0

Impressive performance from the Argentine goalie, especially considering they are effectively an amateur team.

WWC Netherlands 3 - Cameroon 1

That was a feisty game, but Arsenal women doing the business again.
