I must say, some baffling decisions by Stajic. Simon and Gorry should have stayed on while Kerr should have been taken off far earlier. She was spent.

Not quite as baffling as the French coach, but fairly close.

I'm feeling the Lionesses next. But it could be one of those monster Christine Sinclair games too. England defense is pretty good though.

Such a bad stadium design
If Canada loses, I credit the sun in the eyes of their goal keeper

This game is destined for Canada to tie it and England to lose it in PK's...isn't it?

I mean, I try not to single out individual players for blame...but good lord Sesselmann was atrocious. Not just the giveaway for a goal, but all the misplaced passes, miscommunications with her back line, playing her teammates into pickles...oy.

Yeah and there were times Canada were hesitating too much. Just shoot! Especially since England had to sub in a backup goalie.

Haven't watched much of this yet, but caught the second half of England/Canada and man, Canada didn't look that good at all.

Canada looked dodgy all tournament compared to the 2012 Olympics when they went toe-to-toe with the likes of France & USA, mostly because the lack of Matheson (who scored the goal against France to win them the Bronze, & cause France to blow another shot at winning something at a major tournament). Don't have the depth yet to replace a top player like that who can create scoring chances.

A very poor showing for Canada. What now for this program? This tourney was the intense focus of this team for 3 years, and THAT was the performance they put forth? Very disappointing...they had heart, but no cohesiveness it seemed to me.

A big part of the problem is that Canada (like the USA) is heavily dependent on NCAA soccer for player development.

In NCAA soccer, you can sub as many players as you want in and out (but a player who comes out has to wait for the next half to come back in). Guess what kind of soccer that incentivizes?

That BC Place Stadium design is a problem. The sun does get in the eyes on one side.

Quote:
In the 14th minute as Canada wobbled on defence again when Bronze beat the much smaller Allysha Chapman to a free kick and headed the ball in off the crossbar. The sun streaming through the stadium roof did not help Chapman’s cause.
They are using that stadium again for the final. not good.

But doesn't the roof completely close? Or does it just fully open rather than just in that one area? I know its retractable in some way.
