Interesting to see USA playing so good think they will win it for me.

How was that not 6-0 against Argentina?
Dirty play seems to be in their DNA, some shocking tackles.
Another low score but with 2 wins GD shouldn’t come into it but I’d have preferred 13-0 :wink:
Ken

Good day for England with the Cricket as well. :D

Some good football Eddy.
The left winger Read tended to over do it and the final pass was a bit lacking at times but they looked good.
Jill Scott, no surprise that they call her Crouchie, had a brilliant game but I think he might have put a couple of those headers away.

Bad day for English sport yesterday .
Lost cricket to Sri Lanka and Under 21s footballers beaten by Rumania ( Kenny had a shocker )

We need Hamilton to win in France then The Lionesses to cheer us up.

My first Finnish boss told me the mark of a gentlemen was a pressed shirt, crease in trousers and a shine on the shoes.
Never forgot that Bob and my Son and a Grandson follow that guidance.
Cheers Ken

Nice win over Cameroon but what a shambles of a game. The Cameroon girls totally lost it and the Ref had no control.
VAR was correct on all accounts but ridiculous delays in decisions. :wink: Ken

Cameroon should be banned from the next tournament, after that unruly display after Ejangue appeared to spit on Duggan's arm and wasn’t even booked. Bad performance for Ladies Football from Cameroon’s. :shock:

The most serious incident in this 'game' was the deliberate push in the referees back causing her to nearly fall over, I am amazed that the player was not sent off and that it was never even commented on later. I agree that Cameroon ( and the referee) should be barred from international football but it is not too late for a FIFA enquiry to be instigated later.

Obviously the Ref thought the spit and push on her were accidental :shock:
I think she was a disgrace and should be sent back China in shame.

T V Commentators kept also mentioning the the time taken and delays in decision making. WHY ? No complaints in Tennis about Haweye Decisions or about delays in American Football and other sports. What's all this about Time! Is there a Rush to finish the Game within 90 minutes ? With Bad quick decisions made by Refs who didn't see whether it was a Penalty or Not as being acceptable.
Time has no real relevance to us Pensioners anymore,
haven't worn a watch since I retired!

If Teams don't like the VAR because it shows up players who haven't got the Skills to play within the Rules then they shouldn't play. It's their problem not the Rest of Worlds.
We can't go back to a system where 100million people see a Penalty or Offside but One Referee didn't.

'Slow Boat to China' would be appropriate. :roll:

From my experience as pro referee and also, much earlier, a semi pro player, I can comment with some knowledge on Alamo's final sentence.

A referee has only a direct line of vision so, if there is some obstruction of that vision by players running to and fro in front of him/her then he may not see something that 100k spectators (or multi TV replays) see quite clearly.

The reaction of the crowd lets the ref know quite quickly that he/she has missed something obvious to others but he/she can only give what they see.

VAR was introduced to take away this anomaly.

Most folk wanted VAR. Now we have got it and it is here to stay. It will take time to check it and I can't see any problem with that as the laws of the game will now be followed and at least some of the cheating will be found out.

The basic problem with Cameroon is that they don't understand the laws of the game.

One thing I do find very frustrating is why obvious offside is not signalled immediately.

Hawkeye in tennis and cricket is much quicker than VAR, that is my frustration. Ken

Different games. Different areas to cover absolutely no comparison. It will be a while before VAR is perfected and then there will be more gripes about something else. There always has been and always will be in a contact sport.

Tough Ladies Dan,
In the top teams in the World Cup, 41 players are openly Lesbian including 4 from England, full respect to them, it must be very difficult being so high profile.

Ladies World Cup. Men’s World Cup? Will I witness The Others World Cup in my lifetime?
Not such a strange question given what has occurred in the last 40 years?

We’re seeing more and more young girls playing in mixed teams in the Junior Leagues these days, if they’re good enough :wink:
Presume you mean LGBT World Cup, Ernie, probably not in the short term on the big stage but sure it exists already, somewhere. It must be a nightmare for the kit man ( kit person ) :lol:
