Women's World Cup 2019
 
The World Cup begins this Friday evening in Paris with France taking on South Korea.

The English take on Scotland on Sunday night in what I presume will be a big match, while the 2019 World Cup Winners take on Italy in their first match on Sunday arvo in Valenciennes.

Both England and Australia coming off pretty poor losses in their final warm up matches against NZ (lol) and the Netherlands respectively.

Should be a good tournament, there's a few teams who could win it, hoping the Yanks don't win it, and hoping I get to see a France v Australia match as well.

Anyone heading over here for the tournament?

I’m looking forward to it too. Up the Lionesses

Not going to any matches, no. But will certainly watch the England games and a few other group ones too, before the knock outs start.

Can't see past the US but home soil may push the French on that extra bit.

Will the games be on TV or just streamed?

Have you misspelt 'it's' or 'tits'? :)

Panini have released a sticker album for the World Cup. Anyone risk being called a perv and bought one? Wonder if it will sell? Itís things like this that will elevate the profile of the womenís game.

Prefer Panini to Merlin - designs are a lot less fussy.

I bet if I was to buy a Panini pack of stickers, I'd still end up with either Pedro Richards of Notts county or some St. Mirren non entity

I swear it used to be 10p for a pack of 6

5p for a pack of 5 before that. I know because I deliberately gave a shopkeeper 24p in coppers for 5 packs & did a runner before he could count them....

The opener, France v Korea, just kicked off live on BBC1.

Anyone else watching?

andyocpfc 07-06-2019 07:10 PM

Just turned on. I know probably unpopular, but the quality is so poor. Nice to see a decent crowd though.

bubbs11 07-06-2019 07:12 PM

1-0 to France.

South Koreaís defence are nearly as bad as Englandís last night.

bubbs11 07-06-2019 07:15 PM

Those goals just look so big with the smaller keepers. Takes me back to playing Sunday League as a kid.

Yes, I am.

For Football to truly be 'The People's Game' it cannot exclude half the World's population.

The women's game has risen considerably in quality and so too the investment. Long may it continue to advance.

2-0

Absolutely shocking goalkeeping

JAS78 07-06-2019 07:31 PM

VAR disallowed it

Toe was offside

Little Fozzie 07-06-2019 07:35 PM

Good god VAR will ruin football. Her toe was offside ffs. No one cares, give the goal and get on with the ******** game.

RAB 07-06-2019 07:37 PM

MOTD will need a longer running time than The Super Bowl. VAR is going to be very frustrating in many ways.

jamesc_24 07-06-2019 07:38 PM

It’s not hard to outjump a Korean.

5 minutes waiting aswell

Ultimately the Offside rule was invented to stop unfair advantage to the forward players

A foot, a knee or a toe offside is not an advantage. Itís ******* boring as shite just get on with the game
