I'd agree that the level of celebration was over the top if it was a league match.

When you play for your country and score then you should celebrate.

If they hadn't of celebrated they'd likely be lambasted by Trump and then you'd have all his **** nugget supporters sending threats anyway.
His supporters probably think football is unAmerican. <roll>
Well, it is internationally known as soccer.

Why is Hope Solo unlikable? She seems alright in her punditry work for the BBC.
I believe she could be a great pundit, but when playing you could always count on her for dumb comments, on-pitch antics, or being a sore loser, like when calling Sweden cowards when beaten by them at the past Olympics (a few examples here https://ftw.usatoday.com/2016/08/hope-s ... statements), or more serious drama like being charged with domestic violence for drunkenly assaulting her sister and nephew.

Now I'm not saying she's a bad person, or that some of the stuff isn't overblown, in fact, I really appreciate her quotes criticising how the American soccer system favours "rich, white kids" and overall her candidness from an athlete is actually fun and considered. I really just meant that she's the kind of player on a rival team that was easy to cheer against.
Fair enough.

I've never really followed womens fotball so had really took much notice of her up until watching this world cup. She certainly sounds like a bit of a character.

Especially if it's for Scotland.... you never know when it will happen again :)
It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city.

Totally understandable. I think I only have as much awareness because of our exposure to American media in Canada, and our women's national team is ranked #4 in the world, while our men's team hasn't qualified for the World Cup in over 30 years - so it's worth keeping up with them.

Definitely. They represent the most famous female (team) athletes in the US, going back to the days of Mia Hamm, with a great collegiate system and a lot of investment. Have had some really unlikable stars (if you're not American, or maybe even if you are) over the past few years though - looking at you Hope Solo.
Why is Hope Solo unlikable? She seems alright in her punditry work for the BBC.
There has always been something about her I don't like, she does come across a bit cocky and arrogant sometimes, but I just don't know if that's down to her "American-ness"

Seems womens writers on this womens world cup have shown their lack of knowledge of the game to an even more hilarious level than previously thought. Thailand were crushed 13-0 by favourites USA - and the ranting SJWs were screaming because the USA kept going and celebrated the walloping of Thailand. Very few male wriiters did (just the usual suspects - the ones who squeal about anti-brexit, against hate speech - unless its the repulsive unfunny fat dog Jo Brand making jokes about blinding people she doesnt agree with)
It stinks of same shrieking dumbells like the Independent writer (Toby something or other - typical middle class turd) who was ranting his hate for British working class - for CELEBRATING Englands win on penalties against Columbia as "racist"
These drips shouldn't be allowed to comment officially on things they know less about than their cat

Please leave this forum. No problem with differing political views but this post is absolutely hate-filled.
