I'm glad the USA won. Mainly because of Megan Rapinoe and the fact that she's majorly pissing off some people in the US. Childish moi? Absolutely.

Yes. More and more countries are going to have professional leagues, and many of those that already have them will increase investment. Standards will continue to increase as a result.

The downside is that it means the Economic North countries are likely to get even further ahead of the poorer nations who have greater priorities than sport.

Like some on here, I only see four players that I think are really good; the rest I'd categorise as not good enough, or not consistent enough to rely on at this level.
