    I'm hoping to stay firm on my resolution to ignore the 2020 world cup (deaths of migrant workers etc.). But there will still be 3 good Summers leading up to that - euronationsthingy, next year, mens euro then women's euro. In fact, as a Man U fan, I find myself increasingly drawn to international football. No idea why. :confused:

    I'm old enough to remember the channel 4 women's football matches from something like 1990. The standard has improved massively from then - as well as all the other positives you mention.

    England, Scotland, Argentina, Japan.

    Not. Easy.

    Also, we're gonna get sick of the sight of teams in blue.

    Having come from behind to beat Brazil 2-1 in their first game, England are about to take on hosts, world #1s, and two-time winners USA in the SheBelieves Cup.

    USA doing something a bit different with their kits:

    Fran Kirby and Nikita Parris, a dangerous combo :cool:



    Shame we couldn't hold out for the win, but coming from behind to lead and holding them to 2-2 is a strong effort, given they were at home and, y'know, are the best team in the world.

    Japan on Tuesday - win, and we win the cup. Would be a good way to head into the World Cup in June :)

    Sydney Leroux: World Cup winner returns to training at nearly six months pregnant
    Fuck me! I mean, as she says, I'm sure she and her doctor(s) know what her body and baby can handle, but, like, fuck me! :eek:

    Neither of them start the final match against Japan.

    Philip...? :hmm: :confused:

    England v Canada tonight, BBC4, 19:15 k/o

    Meanwhile, the England team have big ambitions.
    If it were the men's team I'd think it was classic England hubris, but fuck it, they've got to two semis and won the SheBelieves :cool: ;)

    Elsewhere, Boots were announced as sponsors of all the home nations and RoI.
    However, Boots also just announced possible store closures and job losses following its '"most difficult quarter" since the firm's formation', so, somewhat conflicting developments...

    The England squad is being announced in a series of video tweets by various famous people.

    I am unsure how I feel about this :hmm:

    Ok, it's a little bit gimmicky, but weirdly it is (to me, at least) kind of working too :oops: :D

    Such a shame that Jordan Nobbs will miss it, but that's a pretty strong squad none the less.

    Same for Fara Williams and Izzy Christiensen, particularly as the latter is through injury and the semis and final are in her club city (Lyon).
