Euro 2013

Fri Jul 12, 2013 7:22 pm

I might make a proper OP, but for now I'll just make a thread. Kicked off a couple of days ago, with England's first match in about 10 mins. Like ups look like this:

England: Bardsley; A Scott, Bassett, Stoney, Houghton; J Scott, Asante; Aluko, Williams, Yankey; White.
Subs: Brown, Chamberlain, Bonner, Bronze, Carney, Nobbs, Moore, Smith, Clarke, Duggan, Susi.

Spain: Tirapu; Torrejon, Paredes, Garcia, Ibarra; Meseguer, Calderon; Sonia, Hermoso, Adriana; Boquete.
Subs: Gallardo, Pons, Landa, Melisa, Torrecilla, Dieguez, Borja, Sandra, Putellas, Vicky, Sempedro, Vazquez.

England will be hoping to do well in this, but it's a pretty open tournament, so they could crash out in the group stage as easily as win it.

So Spain take the lead. Sigh.

Boquete sticks it past Bardsley, who let it bounce off her boot and in. She could and should have done better with that.

Nasser Hussain wasn't exactly either, but he represented England with distinction.

England coach Hope Powell said the team were technically as good as the mens team. Errr no.
The amount of hit and hopes is ridiculous. The play is so poor. Passing is awful. Just not worth watching

She was asked a stupid question. What do you want her to say 'Yeah, we'd get battered'. That would really help the teams morale going into a major tournament.

Just had Al Murray in my head for some reason.

This football is very poor. England are doing their best to give Spain the lead but Spain are doing there best to upstage England at being shit

Serena Williams plays in an individual sport, and is a player, not a coach, which makes it a little different.
