What a game by Naeher! I thought the PK decision was harsh considering the contact was caused by White swinging her leg back into Broon, whose leg wasn't extended for a tackle. Thank goodness Naeher made that debate irrelevant.

On the disallowed goal, White was farther offside than Cameroon was on their disallowed goal.

Apart from them trying to smash Morgan into a million pieces, which eventually caught up to them, all respect to Neville and the Lionesses.

Neville says England will catch up with 'standard-bearers' USA

Quote:
"At the moment they [the US] are the best team because of that winning mentality.

"We will get there, we are closing the gap.

"We've got to keep investing in the pathway, driving standards within our leagues and young players. We've got to keep having sustained success and keep building the momentum that we've got.

"America have got that winning mentality of knowing what it means to win. We will get that, we're learning that, developing that, coaching that every single day.

"It doesn't happen overnight, it takes time. We will get there."


I look forward to England continuing to improve and narrowing that gap. Game to game, it's a slim margin (as soccer tends to be). The main thing is sustained success, being among the favorites in tournament after tournament after tournament. I love hearing another national team say "we are closing the gap with the US and we just need to keep investing in what we're doing." I hope teams like Thailand and Jamaica say, "If we invest a little bit more, next time we can advance out of the group stage." I hope all the women's national teams strive to take that next step.

Netherlands-Sweden scoreless at the half. I have to believe that the US has more offensive fire power to score against either of these teams in the Final. Probably the two best matches of the tournament were USA-France & USA-England.

Rapinoe's retort: 'I think I'm extremely American'

Quote:
"I think that I'm particularly and uniquely and very deeply American," Rapinoe said. "If we want to talk about the ideals that we stand for, all the songs and the anthem and sort of what we were founded on, I think I'm extremely American."

Jersey sales soaring for USWNT, setting records

Quote:
Nike said in its earnings report that the women's 2019 stadium home jersey is now the No. 1-selling soccer jersey, men's or women's, ever sold on Nike.com in one season. Fanatics said this is the top-selling U.S. Soccer national team, men's or women's, of all time, with sales more than 500% greater this year vs. the same period (through the semifinals) in 2015.

A definite bargaining chip when the players want to strike(probably after the Olympics).

Netherlands advance to their first final in only their second Women's World Cup appearance. Have to imagine this will increase their chances to host the 2027 Women's World Cup.
