This was not the greatest tournament from the US team, they seemed tired and out of ideas from day 1. But they made it this far and they should be proud of themselves. Every single player deserved to be on the team, but the lack of minutes some players got still amazes me.
I’m happy it’s no longer “easy” for the US to win, teams are really growing and improving which will only make women’s football better and I’m sure that’s what we all want. It’s been an interesting tournament and some teams have surprised me, thank you football.
Don’t blame the players, mistakes were made the whole game and Canada took advantage. It was bullshit, but maybe they’ll get their karma too. Var sucks. Vlatko you too.
I’m so happy this team is “old” and experienced cause all the expectations to be the best 100% of the time and seeing how negative people can be when they lose is crazy. Imagine had they taken younger players with little experience in a competition this stressful and dealing with a pandemic.
The US team is doing their best. They are facing strong opponents, each one is different and what works with one team might not work with the other. They are getting the results needed to advance. It might not be pretty or “fair” but it’s football! The beautiful sport where anything can happen.
