WWC Netherlands 1 - Sweden 0

I don't think the US have anything to fear from this team, but I do hope Miedema scores in the final.

WWC Final USA 2 - Netherlands 0

That was a cracking final, and a lot closer than I thought it was going to be. Crowds booing FIFA head honcho's will never get old :lol:

USA could have scored 4 or 5 though, it just shows how proper investment has created a team that's still far ahead of the rest.

... but didn't thanks to the second-choice keeper for Arsenal last season =D>

Agreed on the payoff for decent investment, though it's a shame the US team have had to sue the US federation for better pay and conditions.

Now that the Women's World Cup is over, a reminder of how under-resourced many women's club teams are:
TL;DR - women's team find that their club has messed up their hotel reservation, and end up having to sleep in the hotel lobby.
