They seem to have changed a couple of rules. eg handball in the area, last night the Japanese girl was hit from close range whilst trying to put her hands behind her back, and the goalkeeper being made to stand on or behind the line for penalties
Is it just me who's noticed the ball doesn't leave the penalty area before another player touches it after a goal kick?

They have been playing it that way all the way through the tournament.
I love the way the ladies are so positive and are always looking to go forward at the smallest of chances. It makes a change from the tippy tappy, back to the keeper, out to the full back again and then hoof it like the men do. They may lose possession a touch too many times but it is much better to watch IMO.

What a terrific result for England Ladies, the three goals were all wonderful, such a shame Parris couldn't put away a penalty AGAIN

Netherlands v Sweden was a shocker of a game. Everything that Tuesday night wasn't.

USA are world champions, no need to even play it.
