I don't care so much about who wins this game against the US. But if the Ferns can score a goal or 2 it will be a good result for me and a big step towards the WC.

Here is hoping no one picks up an injury today

Player: "What bloody game are you watching ref?"

Ref: "The one where you've had three shots and haven't hit the target."

Hows my refereeing? Whine Here

You can't play international football on that. How you gonna grow the women's game if you make them play on that shark? Bad for the players and the spectators.

It's pretty weird that they've decided to play the game there. I mean, there's a number of football-specific stadiums from MLS teams around the mid-west, or if they wanted to go somewhere bigger, they could have gone to an NFL or college football stadium.

Instead they go to a city that only has a baseball stadium. Absolutely nuts.

When do football administrators ever do anything that makes sense?

Not a great result or performance from what I managed to see.

Haven’t seen any of the game so will wait before I comment. But I wonder if the Ferns are continuing to choose the wrong sort of player (IMO) ie they have have specific physical qualities. This may be somewhat by default- but who are the players that have the excellent technical ability?

I haven't seen the game either. But this result certainly highlights the enormous task the Ferns have ahead of them at this World Cup. Losing the the No.1 USA WNT is not unexpected, but I think that Canada and the Netherlands are also very good teams not far behind the US in quality.

We do have more good lead up games before the tournament so I really hope we can start to find the back of the net in those game to give us a bit of confidence up front. This next game against Mexico will be very interesting.

We always seem to be a bit slow and not as athletic as other teams. I thought the first 35 minutes were quite good. I think many of their goals were more our poor positioning and defending than their brilliance.

Other results of interest.

Cameroon were beaten 4-0 by Spain. Cameroon being the team in our group the Ferns most likely to beat and record there first ever win at a WC.

Canada beat Mexico 3-0. We play Mexico in a behind closed doors friendly next. Canada also in our Group.
