World Cup 2019

Scoring 13 goals is not bad sportsmanship. Patronizing the other side and not scoring goals is bad sportsmanship.

....

Oh, so you meant the women's WC! I don't even know if it's being broadcast here. Female football matches aren't that interesting, anyway. Prediction: Either Germany or the USA are going to win it. And 13:0 is not a surprising result, considering the state of women's (???) football down there at Thailand. They are most certainly just a filler team.

The Australian soccer team is like that these days. Our women's team, on the other hand, is gunning for two world cups in a row.

I meant as in back-to-back world cups. Unfortunately, the refs put a swift end to those plans and let the Norwegians off the hook.

At least we can't really blame our opponents though. We can't afford a repeat of what happened to the men's team in 2006 during the round of 16 when one of the Italian players got away with some blatant diving. *BLEEP*heads ended up winning the bloody world cup that year. I haven't forgiven that diving team disguised as a soccer team ever since.

one diver doesn't make a whole team of divers. You can't possibly be so narrow minded as to hate an entire nation (a world champion, nation, too, on top of it) because of a guy you don't like.

Italy and Germany are the 2 powerhouses I usually root for in EURO / WCs, and the socceroos are my favorite underdog, so I've been pretty torn in that game

Anyway, Italy has deservedly won the 2006 WC because they have been the best team on the pitch. And if I think better you have your divers, too (robbie kruse for example, I have seen him dive in a few games, just don't ask me to name which games cause I obviously don't remember them)

Italy has since lost that whole diving tag, nowadays we all just blame Neymar if last year was to go by...

I watched that game and... huh? All good calls. I would have liked to see Team Vegemite advance but Norway was the better team. Or rather Australia wasn't playing like it usually does. Your players weren't making their strikes. Not even All Star Woman.

Now, in France v. Brazil, the ref did make a lousy call invalidating the first goal. That goalkeeper did not have possession of the ball and the VAR showed it. It ended up not mattering anyway.
