    last time they met was 9-0. It's now 3 up and Mrs T has insisted we turn over as she can't bare to watch anymore.

    Christ, almighty :facepalm: :D

    A lot of them haven't been clean goals, which is sort of a credit to Thailand?

    If this was a boxing match it would be stopped.

    US could be a bit sporting and just slow the game down a bit instead of trying to get to double figures!

    I think we can safely say Thailand were unlucky.

    "Tonight, we knew that every goal could matter in this group-stage game."
    Morgan scored 5, which means she has scored more than any other team :eek:
    France V Norway and Germany V Spain could be interesting matches.

    Shows that after the few nations where football for girls and women is funded, encouraged etc there's a big drop off. Thailand are 34th in the rankings. Compared to the men's game the equivalent would be Belgium Vs Austria, which would never be 14-0. Belgium Vs Scotland (44th) last night was 3-0. You'd have to go along way down the rankings to find a team Belgium would score that many against.

    America are very big on womens football, much more so than mens.
    My SIL often had to play at 1 or 2 in the morning because of the huge demand for pitches.
    Don't really think of Thailand to be a footballing nation.

    Thailand's men's team are 114 in the rankings.

    Wiki tells me Thailand women are the most successful team in Southeast Asia

    It's like this with all sports though, isn't it?

    Teams improve through a combination of investment and competing regularly with quality teams. We've seen it in the men's game; there have been plenty of shelackings over the years but even in the last couple of decades 'minnow' teams have closed the gaps considerably on the more traditional nations.

    I'm not as familiar with the sports, but I think you can also see this with rugby and cricket?

    Saw that but not convinced. China have won the Asian Cup 8 times.

    China isn't in Southeast Asia.

    Brunei, Cambodia, East Timor, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam are.

    S Korea, who just lost to Nigeria in a very entertaining game, are also in Asia but apparently not in the SE bit. They must be East, I suppose, along with their northern neighbours, Japan and China. How come 3 of the 4 qualified? Complicated place, Asia. Good job it's a long way away or we'd be expected to know all this.

    All that aside, I hope Nigeria make it through to the next round.

    Both Koreas and Japan are in East Asia. I think China is just Chinese Asia, cos it covers so much. It is all a tad vague, but the above are the countries who are members of the Association of South East Asian Nations.

    They've got to play France unfortunately so quite unlikely - never know though.

    aye but they've got 3 points so might be one of the 3rd place teams to get through.

    Bit of a bustled goal; Spanish goalie could have done better, I thought. Technically, the best half I have seen so far. Pleased to see Germany winning.

    Ahhh didn't know 3rd placed could still get through.

    Four teams who are third go through.

    There are a somewhat ridiculous number of matches to get rid of eight teams

    The winner of this tournament isn't coming from the China v South Africa game, both sides are fucking clueless
