Beckham would've scored ok

At least we're spared "Stuart Pearce for England" and Korea were the better side so there's no point ruminating.

Least surprising outcome ever! Message here: don't do a Cronaldo penalty unless you are good at penalties Doh

On a magical day for British sport, there could be no more predictable dose of realit than a QF penalty shoot out defeat. Oh well, sounds like a deserved win for Korea and their penalties were great

I went to the Brazil vs. Honduras game at St James' Park today, and I agree that the referee was appalling and Honduras the better side. Brazil had a couple of good opportunities early on, with Damiao and Oscar failing to make the most of them, but eleven vs. eleven, Honduras were the more technically adept, showing the closer control, passing the ball through the midfield, and attacking fluently, using the wings and getting plenty of support to their lone striker. Their right winger in particular was having a lot of joy up against Marcelo; their no. 7, Martinez, showed excellent control and was really probing and moving well as the most attacking of their central midfielders; and Espinoza didn't have quite the same pace or dribbling ability, but looked very composed with the ball.

The first red card was an atrocious decision. The player made two fairly innocuous challenges within thirty seconds - sort of sandwiching Hulk for the first, then sticking a leg out when Neymar knocked the ball past him from the resulting free-kick - both were fouls, but together probably weren't worthy of a card - if all referees booked players as readily, all games would end with a significantly reduced number of players. Neymar is quick and has good control, but spent most of the match coming inside and holding the ball and attempting to draw fouls, then making a great meal of whatever challenges he received. Hulk was clumsy on the ball, losing it more often than not. Damiao doesn't seem to have particularly quick feet, but he scored twice and seemed intelligent in thought and movement. Oscar didn't assert himself on the game sufficiently, but generally looked like a fairly composed, nuanced attacking midfielder. However, during the passage of play which resulted in Brazil's penalty, he blatantly threw himself to the floor in the box, and the referee played on, and seconds later awarded a penalty for what did look like a foul from the Honduras defender. It was a little bit galling, and felt unjust, that Oscar should go unpunished for such cheating, and that Brazil should be awarded a penalty from the same attack. The late red card was as rash as the first, and showed the extent to which the referee lacked sense. By the latter stages of the game, some of the Brazilians at least were being occasionally booed; whilst the crowd applauded both sets of players regardless at the end of the match, the referee did get jeered off quite loudly.

Incidentally, there was a guy not so far from where I was sitting with a hat and a large Santos flag, who vociferously denounced all of the crowd in the vicinity upon Brazil's first equalising goal, presumably because Honduras' opener had been cheered (at that point, there had been nothing but cheers for both teams; though I'm sure the crowd were understandably happily surprised to see Honduras open the scoring).

As anyone noticed that left footers normally go their right on penalty's? Left footers don't seem to be as good as right footers at pens.

Interesting how the English team - or British - always seems to adopt the "let's draw and go to penalties" strategy. Every time I watch them playing a knock-out game I have the strange feeling they're doing their best to draw.

The combination of being the worst team on penalties + the team that loves the most a good old draw after extra-time is very strange... and funny.

I cheered for GB. I wanted Brazil - GB in the semis. Would be more interesting.

Good poin MH, we always go into our shell in extra time.

Korea deserved it though. A far more cohesive unit.

In the ladyball, that last 20mins of Japan vs. France was Crazy. Japan Leading 2-0, France put them under siege, got a goal back, then missed a penalty, and then the Jap women showed some serious PROGRESS to hang on Very Happy

It's US in the finals - a replay of the World Cup Final last year and a grudge match for US.

Really nasty challenge from one of the US player late on in injury time, although it wasn't malicious. The Canadian had her foot planted and took the challenge high up on her knee. Looks like she's trying to run it off though.

USA get the winner two minutes into ET stoppage time.

She came back and started playing again. Tough woman.
That match was actually entertaining.


p.s the standard and consistency of good crossing I've seen in women's football is actually fantastic.

That no.15 Rapinoe is like a two footed David Beckham ok

Both Semi-Finals were ridiculously entertaining, Canada-USA is one of the best games I've ever seen. Period. What a heart-breaker for those Canucks. Sad

Sinclair is a monster in front of goal for Canada scoring a hattrick against the Americans shows her quality. The turning point for me was that call on Canada's goalie the ref did not have a good game. Anyway thats life.

He doesn't belong in the same breath as Villa or Ibrahimovic.
