Hope all this talk about medals and stuff and being at the Olympics hasn't had them lose focus.

Well that was the worst possible start imaginable.

 

We have totally dominated since then, even before the Canadians went a man down. The only time they have looked like doing anything is when we have given the ball away. Canadians hanging on with some lucky bounces. Only a matter of time, especially with fresh legs of Simon or De Vanna to come on.

Woot saved!

Worst thing that happened was half time. Totally dominating in the first half and looked like a goal was coming any minute.

 

Shocking second half. A man advantage and couldn't get it done. With Germany next they are in trouble. They've shown some backbone in the past, they're gonna need it.

Yeah very poor performance in the second half even with the extra woman (haha). First half was very promising, but just couldn't finish to save their lives. The stakes are definitely high now.

 

Good performance by Williams between the sticks, solid penalty stop. She was lucky that she didn't let in a clumsy goal with the one that went through her legs, however.

I was going to write that but it seems weird. Especially when you hear the players/coaches on the sideline and they are saying "man on!" lol

Time to remember that the coach Stajic is from Smurfland.

Read Élysées Perry's piece on the Matilda on Fox Sports Website and he mainly uses attacks on the ground.

Was this a selection blunder by Stajic? Surely Kerr is not match fit and Foord is wasted at full back.

Tough one.

 

I thought Kerr looked lively in the first half and was a major focus for some of the good things they were doing. However, her sharpness wasn't there. She blew a great 2 on 1 by panicking and taking it too early, and she also totally mistimed the volley she had. But they looked better when she was on.

 

That said, Kyah Simon only got 20 and she always does something, as does De Vanna. But neither of them really got into the game that much in the time given.

 

I think Stajic was looking at the amount of games they have to play in such a short space of time. It's how they have approached other tournaments and worked so can't blame him. If they put away their chances they would have won. In the end, what cost us was a terrible stuff up in the first minute, and then some unlucky bounces and ricochets when we were dominating in the first half where the ball just wouldn't drop for us.

This was our 'must win' game though, and in previous games De Vanna, Simon and Foord were the most likely to put the ball in the back of the net. So 2 of those were on the bench and the third playing in a more defensive role.

True. If he was saving them for Germany it backfired. Hopefully they get a result against them.

They can still qualify for the quarters as best 3rd place but likely to face the USA or Brazil

Yeah if US and Brasil top their groups, winning the group or runner up means avoiding them. 3rd place will be a very tough road, why today's game was so important.

 

But they can beat Germany, you gotta believe!

 

Runner up in the group is probably better than winning. Means playing Runner up in group E, likely Sweden or China, instead of runner up Group G, likely France or Colombia, or maybe even the US if they drop points.

There's also an app - olympics on 7

He needs to get Kerr off, she's done.

 

Van Egmond to shore it up.

Haha nek minnit she's charging on to a wayward German pass. Her and Foord have great motors. One minute they look tired then they're charging around again
