For a team that had been in the top 10 for so long, there is still a lot of naivety. Leading with a few minutes to go and they are jumping into tackles in midfield and letting the opposition get past them instead of jockeying . They need to do better than that if they want to beat the best teams.

Inversely, Foord kicking the ball to the Brazil GK when she had possession at half way with 2 minutes to go in stoppage time. So dumb. You're an attacker. You're winning. Its stoppage time and you have possession at half way. FFS hold onto it, turn your back and draw a foul. You don't just merely kick it to no one so the opposition regains possession and puts your team under pressure again.

Watching women's football is a frustrating experience. I was noticing these kinds of things and many wrong pass options over and over. Winger/Fullback is open with no marker near them for miles, yet we decided to turn away from them and try and go through a dense middle.

The win at least releases some of the pressures the girls would have been feeling. 2nd place looking good hopefully the gils can build into form

Sigh...

Hope Sam and the other girls brush all this stuff off.

Is this level of scrutiny (and any criticism of a throw away line, using a term people her age have grown up with) REALLY  necessary?
