    All the cheating antics of the mens games to get an advantage and harrasing the referee arent as apparent in the womens game. 

    I’m not so sure with this second semi final, has that niggly male feeling about it.

    Popp is amazing. Haven’t seen anyone half as clinical as that in this tournament.

    Achtung! Achtung! Well played Germany.

    Good to see the commentators are all female without that Arsenal bloke, what his name? That bloke is a waste of space in commentating.

    His name is Ian Wright and he’s an absolute legend..

    “Whatever happens in the final now, if girls are not allowed to play football just like the boys can in their P.E. after this tournament then what are we doing? We have got to make sure they are able to play and get the opportunity to do so. If there’s no legacy to this – like with the Olympics – then what are we doing as this is as proud as I’ve ever felt of any England side.”

    Impassioned. Insightful. Perfect.

    We could start getting parity between the women and mens game. Getting more women into the game but also into the mens game. I dont see many women managers/ assistants in the top flight mens clubs. Only the third woman in history to be appointed as a referee for 2023 , which is mindboggling.

    I am fortunate to see the take up of girls football in schools in our borough and other sports such as rugby and cricket but I think its not just opportunity but the mindset of boys and men that also provide a barrier of entry. You can see this in the playground in primary as the girls want to play but somehow not included. The interest and participation is growing and hopefully no longer ignored at the grass roots.

    I’d love to be in a world where Russos shirt is proudly worn by everybody supporting England everywhere. There will definitely be more stars on the womens shirt in the future. Ian Wright will explode with emotion when England win the Euros.

    England unchanged.

    If it ain’t broke…

    My prediction: 2-1 Germany.

    Germany will press and press from the 1st minute til the 90th. England will be rattled and not able to play their normal game. Germany will make the best of the few chances they get, and we won’t. It will be tense and we’ll miss a great chance in the 85th minute. Still think Alex Popp will be the difference.

    No Alex Popp for Germany…. I just put an accumulator on with her involved, is that now voided?

    England having the better of it, but unable to get Kirby or Stanway onto the ball so far. Kirby ran the game against Sweden, but she’s barely had a kick so far.

    It’s going to penalties…

    the pundits said that the German fast press left them open at the back, but that was some finish!

    That’s where the ‘shithouse’ tactics of the game is at this stage lacking. The left winger let the full back run past her, the men’s game would have been a foul and a yellow card and danger averted. Good thing or not, I don’t know.

    One half of extra time to go, before penalties. Can’t call it, great game though.

    If you want a job doing properly, let the women do it.

    MrsMC has gone slightly teary, which bever happens.

    First women’s game I’ve watched in full. I wouldn’t say they were any less “professional” than the men. Looking to draw the foul, staying down to try and get the yellow card, running it into the corners to run the clock down and the last minute substitution to take a bit more time out of the game. Plenty of skill and commitment on offer too. In fact I’d say the product was no more or less entertaining than the men’s.

    For me the difference (at least for now) was the crowd. Didn’t hear any booing of anthems and it just looked like a great day out. Presumably the record crowd for a men’s or women’s game has something to do with not having to put as many crowd control measures in place too. Let’s hope they can hang on to that aspect of the game.

    And of course, well done Lionesses; European Champions!

    First time Mrs OS has got so excited over a game of football. We don’t really do football in our house apart from internationals and big games.  Both she and I are quite teary… Awesome is all I can say.

    just wonderful. A stunning first goal and a dirty scuffy toe poke winner. That’ll do!

    Yay !! Awesome, don’t normally watch the full game, but that’s the best game I’ve seen in ages, really emotional too. What a great team.

    Brilliant.

    I think it’s more entertaining, because there is less of the petulant twattishness that, for me, ruins the men’s game. I was actually pleased to see the striker who’s name ridiculously escapes me get booked for dissent, which apparently has had a zero tolerance rule applied in this tournament, as it should be.

    And the same for the crowd, much less of the partisan, neanderthal crap.

    Definitely this. Maybe the male game/fans will learn something. The strict no dissent rule would be a start.

    Not holding my breath.

    Really great result and huge congratulations to the team, manager, support team, women’s FA, sue campbell and all former players who made this possible.
    All previous players, managers and suport teams should be fully acknowledged for their efforts and the foundations they built.
    What will change?
    Will all premier league teams ensure they have women and girl’s football teams with appropriate structures and support?
    Same question in lower tiers – whilst accepting it’s more difficult than for prem league teams; having said that – donny belles?
    Prem league teams who wouldn’t make grounds available? Truck them.
    Potential sponsors who wouldn’t buy in? Screw them.
    Just watch the ‘marketeers’ come running with open cheque books; followers but never leaders when conviction, commitment and practical support were required.
