    Norway’s defense is bad. I agree 100% about what the refs are allowing. China brutalized Germany and Scotland was quite aggressive too against England.

    The Germany China game was hard to watch. Sooo many late hits. Refs need to step it up.

    This Japan/Argentina game is intense. The Japanese are relentless but Argentina is just refusing to break. The rest of the world is playing soccer now and it has raised the level of the women's game significantly!

    What an amazing goal for Canada's Kadeisha Buchanan! She few in from about the top of the 18 with a header goal on a corner kick in first half stoppage time!

    Fleming started at forward for team Canada along with Christine Sinclair. Their current captain alongside their future captain...

    this game is getting ugly in second half...ref needs to gain back control. first half she did a great job. Canada not connecting as well now, mostly bc Cameroon fouling in midfield.

    Beckie and Flem float all over the field. "Forward" in name only. Sinclair a half-step slow at 34 but still has that golden touch. Wingbacks playing well. Hopefully can hold on for 3pts

    Canada survived against a physical team. Lot's of different styles in this tournament. The teams with flexibility will do well.

    And they obviously watched Netherland feed the ball behind the back line again and again in the 3-0 game agains Australia. Australia did not get the wake up call from that game......

    That game between the Netherlands and New Zealand was a good one. The Dutch are relentless. Is it just me or does the Dutch coach look like the most seriously intense person involved in the entire World Cup?

    USA v. Thailand (pre-kickoff):

    if final score is 3-0 or less...disappointing

    4-0 to 6-0...meeting expectations but still hmmmm

    7-0 or more...good performance and something to smile about

    Jill should use all of her subs.

    She aged exponentially as the game progressed. Hopefully she has wine later to decompress.

    I love them having HAO, Kelly Smith and that German chick doing studio commentary. They all have a great understanding of the game and it is great to have the ladies there engaged. The less we have to hear Alexi Lalas talk about the women's game the better. He should try watching more of the competition and doing the research instead of just scanning his pre-match notes...

    After watching the first half of the US vs Thailand game the ref's allowed two fouls to occur in the Thailand box. After the referee made the on field call they then referred to VAR. The VAR decision was in line with the referee's call. All I have to say is what the WTF are they looking at. My point is what criteria are they basing these calls on. Its apparent its not logical. Hope this changes to protect the players. Its in the best interest of all for teams to be able to put their best lineups out there for competitive purposes and avoid potential injuries from fouls.

    The game is pathetic and even more pathetic is the celebrations by our team. FFS act like you have been there before.

    Would've been 14-0 but Morgan missed the extra point.

    Good result. Glad they could have fun with this one. As they will with Chile. Thailand is the worst team in the tournament and Chile may be 2nd worst. If Thailand doesn't score vs. Chile, they should be relegated from the next WC in 4 years :) Neither game will help US prepare for Sweden. But at least they should get 6 points and go into that third game healthy.

    Twitter lighting up about USA excessively celebrating. I don't have a problem with it---a lot of pressure on these women, enjoy it. But when people start citing goal totals as proof of a player's talent, this game is Exhibit A for evidence that goals don't always = skill. Also why the Golden Boot award is skewed too. They shouldn't count goals until the knockout rounds.

    Haven't watched Netherlands v. New Zealand yet, but MAP has me anxious to see the women in orange. Thought I'd never say this but I think Mertens may be a better wing than Heath and Rapinoe.
