    Fingers crossed Asllani's OK. I've enjoyed watching her, even if she's been a touch erratic in her end product.

    As I said earlier, I could imagine Holland improving on this performance. If they want to beat the USA, they've no other choice.

    That's if you include the 2017 and 2013 Euros. They made the SF in 2011 and 2012.

    Yeah, I only watched the OT, but it's obvious USA has all the advantage here, also one more day of rest, and the Dutch even played longer than they hoped for.

    12 players over the age of 30, 3 under the age of 25. Haven't won the FIFA U-20 since 2012, haven't made it past the group stage of the FIFA U-17 since 2008. I don't think U.S. Soccer is as complacent.

    Its not the problem of the French that American fans, despite ample heads up time and an ideal route, can't get their **** together. They would've easily solved the issues through simple research (getting a hotel in Le Harve rather than spending it in a upper class seaside town), especially since the city had hosted other games and never had an issue with foreign fans.

    Except, of course, with the "Ugly American" type.

    The city hadn’t and hasn’t hosted that many people for a game. This is just people looking for issues with American fans.

    Another “ugly American?”

    Yes, blaming the fact they never hosted is a reason why they had to wait 30 minutes for a drink.

    Le Harve had no problems handling the other foreign travellers that came in for the games. It seems that you fans tend to forget that there is a world outside of Paris (or even Marseilles). With the easiest and simplest schedule that you could expect, you still treat regions as a hick region when it doesn't provide what you need.

    You guys are going to really have to sack up since its going to be in the Asia-Pacific for the next edition. Especially when the attitudes you bring won't work in that part of the world.

    Other foreign fans in smaller numbers? And I haven’t seen the drink complaints but yeah, it taking 30 minutes for a drink is pretty bad.

    You’re also barking up the wrong tree with me and only liking Paris, or, I assume, other big cities. I don’t like Paris that much. I’ve spent a ton of time in smaller towns/cities in Europe. Just try again

    Would be interested to hear a ref's ruling on this since it's over and they didn't review it in game. I know in realtime the ref called it not a foul, and I can see why people would think it is a foul. However, this is another case for me of the attacker initiating contact and not the defender being careless/reckless/dangerous (which is what constitutes a foul). The defender looks to be making a clean play for the ball, and then the attacker steps inwards in an attempt to shield the ball, but in effect ends up hitting the Dutch defender mid tackle. Especially from the second angle it looks like more of a foul by the Swedish player (van Lunteren at that part was actually ahead of her with her leg and she barges into it) but I'm not really sure how it would be viewed if it went to VAR. The Swedish player also throws herself to the ground after the contact looking for the foul of course.

    It's a lot of French, and I totally didn't get it.

    Well, if they don't like tourists, they shouldn't host a world cup.

    She isn't really though. She barges into the defender and not the other way around.

    I posted a tweet earlier about the NWSL being in a sort of critical year. I would hope the league continues to survive but it seems to be on some shaky footing. There are some teams like Seattle, NC, "Western NY", and Washington (which plays locally) but some markets are still missing. Would be nice to see some expansion.

    Seems like they're just trying to take advantage of the World Cup interest. Let's see if it continues beyond 2019.
