A goal and three assists pretty okay in my book

No it did not matter
Stats were fine and she did some really good things. But, most of her shots toward goal were simply awful. I'm sure she'll settle in and be more consistent the rest of the way.

Spain v Germany match today should answer a lot of questions. Biggest being is Spain for real as some in the media have been pushing. Biggest game of the competition thus far

Spain like the mens team is great in possession and box to box but as pointed out at half time do not have a natural goal scorer to help them in and around the goal

Possession is the only thing that gives them a chance to hang with big girls (ie USA and France) in my opinion.

Germany to me is not as good as their past teams have been.

Spain will not go far in the knockout rounds because of a lack of attacking players who can score. Germany needs to open up and pull out of their scoring funk to have a chance to go deep. Two goals in two games draws concerns

Some questions starting to be answered

Germany wins 1-0

First sentence should get you banned from this thread. For all the obvious reasons.

France was the better team it just took them awhile to wear down Norway who is trying to get back to where they were a decade or so back. Good game none the less

Two games Thursday.

11:00 AM Central: Australia vs. Brazil
2:00 PM Central: South Africa vs. China

I haven't heard if Marta is available for Brazil. Australia was on the wrong end of the tournament's biggest upset thus far.

So what's everyone's take on the US goal celebrations? If it were a friendly, I'd have a problem with it, but no problem with their actions in a WC match. The only thing they need to be careful of would be their actions if another team built up a large lead, and celebrated.

I have absolutely no problem with players wildly celebrating their first WC goal, this has been their dream since 6 or 7 years old. I also have no problem with Morgan celebrating her record-tying 5th WC goal.

I was not as supportive of some of the other late celebrations by experienced goal scorers.

This and the political drama that they carry makes this a tough team to like for a lot of people. Personally, I'll never cheer against an American team, but I wont be pulling for this one to win either. Taking the middle here, not for em, not against em.
