I'm a long-time, huge football (or soccer if we must) fan, and I'll tell you what Tarek - yesterday's match was a much better one than the most recent mens final. This was end to end stuff, some superb attacking play by the USA, ebb and flow, and lots of drama. It was also played with huge skill, no lunging tackles or dramatic dives. Just a great match all the way around. I've recorded this one and the USA-Brazil match - and hope my daughter will find inspiration in them. That's not saying I want her to play soccer, I just think they serve as a fantastic answer for all the times she watches mens sports with me and asks 'Do ladies play that?'
That's just one biased man's opinion, as I said before. I have never really watched an entire match to judge, although I have seen a video on YouTube of some very agressive woman player who keeps beating the living heck out of other players and the referee never sends her off - it was funny to watch.
Anyway, I agree with the fact that the mens finals in the last World Cup was horrible, not to mention that ALL the matches in the last World Cup were bad. I hope the next one is going to be better because the last one was a huge disappointment to all soccer fans.
