    They were, but the ref blew for far too many challenges, seemingly because they were robust rather than with an eye to the 'did she get the ball' aspect of the rules.

    Come on the Lionesses :cool:

    Quite a lot of empty seats there which is disappointing. Game has started at a good pace though :)

    100 mph start. We look threatening but we want to watch for getting caught short at the back.

    If you disregard the rules of the game then it is not a penalty

    Far more enthralling than most of the games I've seen during the season. Well hooked. 2 up is quite generous to the Scots.

    This half has flown by. Great performance so far.

    Why are the linesmen meant to delay putting the flag up? Surely it would be better to put the flag up the minute there is an offside?

    Let the game flow and if offside VAR can pull it back

    In case they've got it wrong. If a goal is scored, they can always use VAR to make sure whether it was/wasn't offside.

    Also, referee's assistant ;)

    It's an interesting counter to "VAR will disrupt the flow of the game". In this case, it's literally doing the opposite!

    Surprised at how poor Scotland have been so far I can see why they were 9/1
