I’m usually not shy in absolutely hammering women’s football as being of a pathetic standard but some of the play from the French team was of a really good standard from the little I saw of it (last half hour or so). I was impressed by their #10 and their #6.
I've not been as wound up for a Scotland England game since the Euro plays off in 99. Getting some butterflies already and can see me pacing about tomorrow waiting for the game to start.
We're a completely different proposition to the team England turned over in the Euros in 2017. They're obviously comfortable favourites but I think we could get a result. At the very least we'll land a few blows.
There’s a good number of Scotland fans here in Nice. Lots of familiar faces from watching Hibs Ladies. Women’s football is a bit of a village, though. Everybody knows everybody else 😄. According to the local World Cup volunteers, both Scotland and England have sold about the same number of tickets, around 3000. Locals and tourists will make up the rest.
Great fun in the Fan Zone last night; lots of freebies and a young girl who plays for East Fife Girls did 117 in the keepie-uppie competition 👍and removed 4 English players from the leaderboard 😄
Great atmosphere and no need to keep looking over your shoulder for flying plastic seats.
1-0 South Africa - Spain at half time. Spain women not the power in the ladies game that their male counterparts are in theirs but still makings of a shock. SA counter attacking well. If they had a decent end product they might have been clear by now.
