A well-known football pundit explained it this way, In the premiership when a player receives the ball he has a nanosecond to decide what to do with it and pass it such is the pace of the game. As you progress down the leagues reaction times are longer and the game is not so fast. In the women’s game they could iron a shirt before having to decide what to do with it. Maybe it will get better but the American women have been playing ‘soccer’ for a long time now and although they are probably the best team in the world they’d be lucky to get a turn out for a decent pub team.
