Opening goal has been scored. France looks rather very good.
I am watching.
Well that's a great finish. France is legit.
That France gal is a good foot taller than any of the worst Koreans.
So if this is accurate and USA and France hold serve we’d meet in the quarters in Paris. Laaaaame.
Renard is fucking insane
I’m sure some people had a bad ass sports day. Attend the French Open and then walk over to Parc de Princes for the WC
Fed/Nadal at the Open no less.
It sucks Hegerberg and Norway couldn’t get things figured out.
The perfect partner to pair with Van Dijk
How is that a penalty on RSA? (2nd penalty)
Wow Italy. Thats a big early upset.
Europe 5-0 so far.
That penalty kick was really, really bad.
If only Jamaica could play a decent through ball
Want Jamaica to win at least one match.
VAR is starting to annoy me. Yes, she's making herself bigger but it's not really an unnatural position and had zero time to get out of the way. More penalties is not a good thing.
Its both correct and a terrible call. Hate it.
I don't understand why Hope Solo has been allowed back into the women's soccer conversation.
How did England look today? I thought they might be the team to beat going into the tournament.
Haven’t seen Scots that eviscerated since William Wallace.
They can't seem to understand staying onside. They got lucky with a VAR penalty otherwise its a 1-1 game.
VAR has annoyed me for a while especially on penalty calls. Offsides is one thing but slow motion to determine penalties isn't a good thing at all. I wish it was for goal line and that's about it.
Replay sucks for hockey too.
They definitely need to modify handballs and offsides because some decisions are just ridiculous. That France goal that was disallowed because her foot was like 2 inches beyond the defender is just stupid. It's like a guy in hockey being offside because his skate is up at the blue line.
Offside is offside and should not be a judgment call.
However, the new handball rule is going to be awful.
I wish they'd modify offsides so that if you receive the ball in an onside position it's onside. In hockey it'd be like a pass coming to you but you make it back to the blue line before touching it.
If you come back, it negates most of the advantage intended by the rule.
And in not saying that's the only part of the rule. It would still be onside if you are onside at the pass too so through balls are still possible. But if you are offside you have a chance to "touch up".
I'm sure this is flawed but the current rule sucks.
Don't think it should be a judgement call, just don't like that it's any part of the body being past the last defender. You want to take away goals because the torsos are even and 1 foot is barely past the defender or a knee, I don't like it.
You take away some well deserved goals for slow motion replays on handballs and shirt pulls and what not. The penalty for Switzerland in the first nations league semi was an absolute joke.
Can't wait to see how idiots like Jon Moss interpret VAR
That would be a hard no for me.
I'm not sure if you've thought about it, but it would be like the back shoulder throw in football. The attacker would know exactly when he's stopping while the defender would have to watch the ball and the attacker to know when to stop. Would give attackers a huge advantage on set pieces.
The spirit of the rule has always been to defer to the attacker in tight situations. Var gets rid of that and nullifies a play if a fingernail is offsides. That was never the intention behind the rule. It’s dumb.
And now Japan draws their opener. That's another (with Australia) as far as a non-Europe contender not looking good early.
Weird thing that happens all of the time in soccer commentary. If a player falls in the box, commentators just always quick debate if it's either a dive or a penalty. Yet so many times it's simply a player trying to make a play and falling so that it's not a dive - but it's also not a penalty. But I don't know why they always default that it has to be one of those two things.
I BELIEVE THAT WE WILL WIN
Game time. May this go better than France '98
Yay ladies again! Great work by O'Hara.
We have now equaled the entire men's goal output from this tournament. (1)
Somehow I didn't even notice they ruled the first goal offside until now.
Thailand probably needs a taller keeper
This goalie is just awful, run it up
The Thai keeper doesn't look vey interested in goalkeeping.
Lol that's a clear penalty imo.
Figured if the Thai goalie was going to have anything going for her it would be a strong hand
lol that was an actual tackle.
This ref is in full 'feels bad for them' mode.
if that tap-back on the set piece wasn't intentional, it should be.
This game is 3-0 and I feel like that’s about as close as it could be.
