    Really thought you were taking the mick with that, to the extent that I Googled it to check. Wow. Argies not too flash then.

    Watched the first half. The keeper truly was awful - the first own goal was a corner she managed to fist into her own net from four metres out.

    So it seems. Didn't win a game last time around, either - lost 6-0 to Japan, 6-1 to Germany and 3-0 to Canada. Doesn't say much for women's football in South America that they're the holders of the Sudamericano Femenino (Copa America equivalent) and came second to Brazil in the previous three tournaments. Only ever beaten Brazil, who AFAIK are the only South Americans with a professional league, once though.

    Reckon USA - North Korea will be a cracker today. Strongly advise people to watch. 10 am (BST) on Eurosport for the Brits. It'll be better than any Premiership game this year.

    England play at 1, again on Eurosport and BBC 2, if anyone's interested.

    quality stuff.

    Matildas V Ghana tomorrow should be good. The Matilda's have been in good form during the leadup, defeating China twice (i think).

    USA 2 - 2 Korea
    Abby Wambach (50)
    Son Hui Kil (58)
    Yong Ae Kim (62)
    Heather O'Reilly (69)

    Told you it'd be gun. Korea were the better team. Huge effort against a side that's not lost since November 2004.

    Japan 2-2 England
    Aya Miyama (55, 90+3)
    Kelly Smith (81, 83)

    Decent free kick for Japan's first goal. Awesome free kick for the second. Kelly Smith does her thing, as usual.

    Turn the game on to an endless run of giving the ball away and then Kelly Smith equalises and then puts England ahead... hmm
