I'll be watching the next game. Come on the Lionesses!

As for the mysoginists above, grow up!
Turin - agreed! I can't post the link, but have a look at Fiji vs. PNG ladies Rugby League after- match (you tube or rugby league fans club)for a lesson in decorum.
It's not a my sport is better than your sport rant, (I really do enjoy football too) it's about how to conduct yourself when you have a responsibility to the wider public, as Phil Neville said.

Can you point out where in the rule book that is ?

If truth be told ENG have been a pretty mediocre team up to now. Judging on their form so far, the Norwegians look to be a far better team. It's going to be a tough game unless England raise their game significantly.

Without knowing the exact paragraph in the rule book, the referee can stop the match if one team is not acting
according to the referees decisions. We had this in the Bundesliga in a match with Leverkusen where Leverkusens
then Coach Schmidt decided he didn't have to leave the pitch although the ref decided so. Referee stopped the
match, after which Schmidt obliged.

Just watched England almost play Norway off the park to win 3-0. If they can continue to improve game by game they could go all the way. Lucy Bronze’s strike to score the third was one any player of any sex at any level of the game would be proud of.

Not at all ! I watched the game tonight & I feel Norway were out played in midfield .. and a terrific dyke strike from L B sealed their fate ! Well done ..
Massive chimpout from the Cameroon ladies ( sic)
the ref was lucky not to be boiled in a pot and eaten !

Well deserved win by England but I think their defence is going to have to be a bit tidier against USA or France in the semi otherwise they'll get punished.

It was indeed, perfectly executed and a cracking strike of the ball....but (minor quibble) it also was an example of utterly shockingly poor defending that you hope you would not see at any level of the game.


England had tried that set piece (the pull back to Bronze unmarked just outside the box ) once/twice previously and somebody in the Norway set-up - Captain/coach/ goal keeper/physio/ tea person/Per by telephone? really really should have pointed out the blindingly obvious.

P.S. Whatever happens next , can England ladies please do themselves and us a favour and lose the ******* band...

On the previous match, who can remember that back kick from a corner or the perfect goal from the free kick?

Well, I said that England had to raise their game which they did, up to a point. Norway on the other hand never achieved the level they had demonstrated up to the England game. But, let's be honest, England's defense is highly suspect and may well be heavily punished by a team like the USA.

This is from the Guardian. They really do hate the UK.

I'm English – but I want USA to beat the Lionesses in the World Cup.

And as ever if you actually read the article you would see that it isn’t the anti English article you would have us believe. The author is indeed English born, but is a long term US resident, with an American wife and kids, and aspirations (implicitly stated) to become a US citizen. Effectively he passes the US soccer version of the notorious ‘Tebbit test’ - in any other circumstances you would be purring with admiration!

England played their socks off and did very well.
Good series, well done.

I suppose that is the issue with VAR. The penalty would not have been given without VAR, (as there was contact, however minimal).but also, without VAR, England's second "goal" would have been allowed.
Once you allow technology into a sport, you have to accept the findings of that technology.
The obvious example is Hawkeye in tennis. The ball is never "almost " in or out - it is either categorically in, even by 2mm, or out.
