    Official Women's Football Euro 2005 Thread

    The men's Euro had a whole forum, so in the name of equality (and because it's actually something I care about), I'd like to start a thread. Norway are playing Germany at the Halliwell-Jones stadium in an hour and a half, should be a decent game - hopefully we'll scrape a point and then beat France and Italy to reach the semis.

    England won 3-2 over Finland yesterday...though they let 2-0 at half-time slip to 2-2 after 89 minutes. How the Finns managed to mess that one up I dunno...

    It wasn't Rachel Brown's fault
    ...and don't anyone dare try and say anything different

    Germany by a landslide, I reckon. England could do something with home advantage, but they weren't impressive in the second half against the weakest side in the comp, Finland. Sweden, Denmark and Norway are outsiders.

    1-0 to Germany after 65 minutes. Good goal, but Rachel Brown would have easily saved it

    Think that's roughly the opposite of how saw it. Appalling defending by Paulsen, and then a really nice shot off the post. Not even Buffon would have saved that one.

    Ah well, lost 0-1, now Norway have to beat France and Italy to get to the semis. Which they should do if they play like this and score occasionally.

    That's six posts you've made in this thread, Sean. In four of them you've mentioned a certain goalkeeper from Burnley...
