As you say, Boxx and Lloyd were both clearly gassed, and who knows how much of an effect that might have had on their kicks, not that I was that confident in Boxx taking a kick regardless. Point still being, though, game should never have even gone to extra time.
    Definitely, PK selection you might as well just pull names out of a hat. I mean if the Japanese goalie dives the other way then Sundhage looks like a genius for choosing the "veteran" Boxx to go first. Then if Wambach finishes it with her kick she looks like a genius for saving her for later. Like you said and I mentioned pretty much all luck!

    But yea, should never have gotten into extra time.

    At least we can all now stop pretending like we care about girl's soccer. Cause I'll be honest, I really don't give a ****!

    so much for his earlier talk of being loyal to Spurs
    This is a big moment for the future of Tottenham Hotspur. Especially with Arsenal potentially facing an exodus of key players, Spurs can become a major player in North London but if they lose Modric no player will take them seriously as a perennial contender. Imperative they keep Modric if they intend to challenger for the league title year in and year out.

    It's an interesting diversion from the men's game from time to time, though I don't know how much of that is the actual games and how much is Morgan and Solo.

    Amazing but not surprising and I would be surprised if both managers aren't gone.

    for shame sir.

    Can you imagine......

    Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has confirmed his interest in former Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor. Adebayor is out of favor at Manchester City and spent the second half of last season on loan at Real Madrid. He is currently training with the reserves after being left out of the squad for the preseason tour to North America. Redknapp is hoping to land the striker on a loan deal.

    Gutted for Venezuela, they played some great games and were gutsy as hell, they deserved to beat Paraguay and hit the post 3 times and had a perfectly legit goal disallowed.
