it was getting bigger crowds than the boy's game
I would imagine that a women in football gear in the 1920s would be considered near naked.

If I want to watch a bunch of big girls play football I'll watch the Premiership!

Brilliant game last night England vs Japan, some first class football and we won 2-0.
No mention at all on either BBC news or Sky news. What a shame,, more interesting than bloody Boris.

Igsve no problem with that just make sure you’re out of town when it happens ... Dyke fest is not necessarily a derogatory term .. google it !
After reading the above quotes I realize you are just a racist/bigot/misogynist/***.

Media doing a hype that they should be paid equally etc etc but know of nobody who is interested.
In the US, the US Women's National Team, brings in more money, overall, than the US Men's National Team.

You mean you have never watched an international game with San Marino playing? Many MANY huge goal deficit defeats there, Thailand is just the woman's game equivalent. The individual skills on display are excellent and some of the football is terrific. It is patchy in places but so is the World Cup and the Euro's in the men's game.

I find it somewhat entertaining because it's still relatively naive. Some games are exciting enough, others a waste of time. But I've often thought the same about the men's PL games! Overall, women's football has improved over the years and I'm sure it will continue to do so. Whatever, it beats some of the rubbish my wife watches on TV!

I have watched women's football more frequently for a few years now (on TV and at local stadium) and I agree it has improved quite noticeably over that period. Some of the World Cup games currently being played have been of quite a good standard with many players displaying obvious skill and their fitness has been impressive. However, I have also noticed the creeping introduction of spitting and feigning injury which was absent from the women's game some 5 or so years ago. Probably inevitable as women's football becomes more mainstream and copies the men's game. That said, it is still a whole lot more civilised to watch overall. Put another way, I have yet to see a brawl develop in the women's game !

It is unfortunate that many of the female players have chosen to ape the antics of the overpaid popinjays in the male teams, e.g. the breast tapping followed by a near Hitlerian salute, the jumping on each other after a goal is scored and piling on top of one another for some unfathomable reason. I had the opinion that this was a form of homo-eroticism amongst the men; why the ladies copy this rather ridiculous behaviour is beyond my ken.

I keep getting battered with women’s football info on the radio whilst trying to listen to the cricket. Mind you it’s not as bad as F1 Q2 or what ever it’s called now

Last night's game was a disgrace and quite unlike any other game that I have ever seen. I really cannot understand why the Cameroon disallowed goal was given offside, their player was quite clearly level. Of course it doesn't excuse their reaction. I do however have to wonder if it was imperative to the tournament that England did not go out and that this was a factor in the decision(s).

EM, perhaps you are better than the VAR, I don't know. Should England's VAR adjudicated goal have been disallowed? 3-0 or 2-1, England still beat them. I thought the commentary very fair. They criticised the referee for lack of firm control. They explained the Cameroon team, for financial reasons had little time to practise together. They also criticised the England team for losing their cohesiveness from time to time.

That penalty goal was a rare classic that the men's game rarely emulates.

It's the 2-1 that is relevant. Time and time again I have seen a team 2-0 down pull one back and it alters the whole tenor ( Not tenant as the modern idiom seems to have decided) of the game. Admittedly the offside decision was a close call.

And England should have had at least another penalty, (late tackle on Fran Kirby) and at least two Cameroon players should have been sent off ( Ejangue spitting on an English player in the 14th minute and Takounda stamping on Houghton’s ankle in the second half).

But it the point is the referee and VAR decisions are final - and the Cameroon team are lucky the match wasn’t stopped at half time and awarded to England for dissent.

What exactly happened when the Cameroon slammed both hands into the referees back?

I have watched a few games with my son, who loves watching any sport, and I have noticed that the standard of refereeing is consistently very low.

Maybe they should have got some male refs in.

I disagree, the goal was quite clearly offside, only by the front half of the foot but it was offside. No need to play the 'racist card' or to call it a conspiracy...

I watched last night's game. Quite entertaining, and surprisingly good football. Seen a lot worse in the EPL.
Agree about the referee though, quite awful. No idea what she thought she was doing. No attempt to discipline the Camaroons and totally lost the respect of the players. She refused to make any decision and ran to the VAR all throughout the match.
I'll be watching the next game. Come on the Lionesses!

As for the mysoginists above, grow up!
