Only just watched the match as I was saving it for mrsb to be home. Turned out she’d Listened to it driving back from that London. We still watched it all, even after she rather ruined the first half by going ‘I’ll pay more attention in the second half’ after fifteen minutes. Which gave it away a bit.
Still, a very decent match, the penalty was harsh but fair on the Dutch, so good thing the second goal was an absolute cracker.
It did seem like the cameraman had an instruction - ‘if there’s nowt happening, focus on Alex Morgan’. I wonder why?
