They have beaten Columbia so will go into the semi finals

I donít follow it.
They are quite dirty players arenít they? I read about one of them putting the boot in on an opponent.

No. That was just one incident, whereby one of our players stood on the back of one of the other team's players. Whether it was deliberate or not, remains to be seen. The player involved was red-carded and banned for two games.

An excellent match against the Aussies, good play and ball passing between the team, and team members not hanging on to the ball and going for personal glory like a bloke would. Remember also, that they've achieved what the male team have yet to do - made it to a world cup final.

Good luck this Sunday.

I was idly channel hopping today when spain were awarded a penalty which was saved by the England goalie. 


Now I'm no expert lip reader, but as the goalie walked away to return the ball she mouthed something to the spanish contingent and, as I said before, I'm no hot shot lip reader but I do recognise  the words
  F*** and O** when I see them.....,eagle eyed wrinklies like me may spot them if the nawty words police don't edit them out before re transmission !
hmmmm   wonder what would have been said or done if it had been a male player shouting abuse at th d*g*s ? ?
And I still say that both teams should swap shirts at the end of the match !

I thought Spain played well and were better than the British but they also played dirty and the ref didnít seem to notice .

Can anyone tell me... why the majority of the England players have blonde ponytails?


I did watch it but when England were losing, they started using dirty tactics. The aggression in the England goalkeeperís face when Spain scored was scary. Her mouthed language was unnecessary.


Spain deserved to win, they were slick and fast. Bonmati was Player of the Match for me.
How great that the Queen Of Spain was there to support the Spanish players. The King Of Spain supported his countryís players at Wimbledon.


As for the commentators, they need to learn how to speak properly!

The Spanish were pretty dirty too .
They like the hang onto the shirt technique while the ref looked the other way .

I didn't watch any of the matches, but a few commentators on the radio news did describe the English team as "rough and dirty" throughout the tournament but that might just be the style of play in England.
