It is gaining popularity - last night's game got 11.7 million viewers in the UK, that's massive.

Why is it gaining popularity? Because people can see it free-to-air. While other sports have sold their souls to Sky, the WC has been going out on the BBC and people are watching it and talking about it.

I watch footy at all levels from non-league to Premier and what makes a game entertaining is often whether the two sides are evenly matched and up for it rather than how many Messi/Ronaldo types are playing. The most memorable game I went to last year was a local Sunday League Cup final.

I enjoyed last night's game, the US were always going to win it but the English girls gave them a good game and can be suitably proud of themselves.
Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect. - Mark Twain
