World Cup 2019

My daughter is stoked for this so I'm probably going to see a lot of it. I'm making an effort to judge it on it's own merits.

Talk about it here.

great thread, thanks for starting it up.

MadamGeorge - 07 Jun 2019 20:14:19 (#2 of 212)

The daughter of a friend of mine is in the Scotland squad, but I don't think that is sufficient reason to support them.

TRaney - 07 Jun 2019 20:14:25 (#3 of 212)

France score, nicely worked

MadamGeorge - 07 Jun 2019 20:15:53 (#4 of 212)

Needless to say my friend will be travelling around France to see all her games.

TRaney - 07 Jun 2019 20:16:36 (#5 of 212)

Apparently Scotland have a decent side

MadamGeorge - 07 Jun 2019 20:24:26 (#6 of 212)

There is an implied "for Scotland" at the end of that sentence, TRaney.

TRaney - 07 Jun 2019 20:26:25 (#7 of 212)

No, apparently they are reasonable on an absolute basis. Scotland v England on Sunday

Moschops - 07 Jun 2019 20:28:16 (#8 of 212)

Bookies don't seem to think so, 150/1 for the tournament

TRaney - 07 Jun 2019 20:29:53 (#9 of 212)

I didn't say winners. Buut they have a decent chance of being the first scottish team to get past the groups.

TRaney - 07 Jun 2019 20:30:29 (#10 of 212)

France get a second. Good finish.

MadamGeorge - 07 Jun 2019 20:31:02 (#11 of 212)

Nice goal for France, unfortunately the game is looking a bit one-sided, can't see Korea getting back into this.

Sabacious - 07 Jun 2019 20:32:13 (#12 of 212)

No goal! Offside.

MadamGeorge - 07 Jun 2019 20:40:46 (#13 of 212)

But then they do get a second, Korea can't defend the corner.

TRaney - 07 Jun 2019 20:41:58 (#14 of 212)

It must have been short odds Renard (see I've got the names down) would score from a corner. She's at least a foot taller than any Korean player.

MadamGeorge - 07 Jun 2019 20:47:34 (#15 of 212)

Is Renard the captain by any chance? That would be sweet.

MadamGeorge - 07 Jun 2019 20:49:54 (#16 of 212)

Another header from Renard from the corner.

TRaney - 07 Jun 2019 20:51:29 (#17 of 212)

Fraid not. Henry is.

TRaney - 07 Jun 2019 20:52:25 (#18 of 212)

HT. Very one-sided but France look like a good side.

MadamGeorge - 07 Jun 2019 20:58:19 (#19 of 212)

Yep, don't think I'll watch the second half, this game is done.

TRaney - 07 Jun 2019 21:53:17 (#20 of 212)

finishes 4-0
