The defending for the first goal was farcical.  I've honestly been trying to enjoy the football for what it is, rather than comparing it to the men's game, but it's difficult to get past the feeling that it's like watching a non-league game on TV.

That's my take on it.  From what I have seen there are only a handful of players who have the "feel and instinct" of a decent football player - Bronze, Morgan and the number 10 from Norway come to mind.

That's very harsh on Ellen White.  She's a superb forward.

She is. But points deducted for her shite celebration. Especially as she insists on doing it before she knows whether her goal counts.

Is there any chance that Holland could win today?.

Be nice if the Dutch could win it, but I can't see past the Yankettes.

Decent effort from the Dutch so far, looking solid and dangerous on the break, although they’ve started to ride their luck a bit. Keeper is playing a blinder.

Turned a bit at the end of the half. US getting frustrated and Dutch getting in behind them more.

Points also deducted for not coming forward to take the penalty against USA.

Half time came at a bad time for the Dutch. Hopefully they can make a game of this, if America score again it's all over.

Fair play to the USA, they were excellent throughout.
