      Took about 5 minutes for VAR to decide it’s a penalty and then the resulting penalty was a pathetic attempt.

      Terrible VAR ruling to award the penalty.  But England can’t convert.

      Ball don’t lie. Was never a pen to begin with.

      The refs in this World Cup have been atrocious.

      And that last tackle should have been a straight red regardless. Ridiculous to even complain about that.

      Oof, and that fall by Morgan just now was atrocious. Something you’d see from Neymar.

      That was a penalty according to the way VAR is done now.. but the attempt was shocking.

      Looks like it's all over now.

      I was thinking Suarez but the point remains the same.

      Didn’t think it was a penalty either, saved the blushes of a horrible tap in chance missed though.

      Ref didn’t have a clue, wasn’t even going to show a red card, forgot had already booked her once!

      I know the quality of officiating is higher but wow.  If this is what VAR is going to bring to the game well, no thanks.


      By higher I mean in the Prem.

      they should not be using sl-mo on VAR its a joke and the only view should be that of the Referee or we may as well just stop using lines people. Every contact should not result in a free kick or penalty its just a joke

      Just got to watch the replay of the game and how the heck is that a penalty, though White's dive like she was shot from close range was amusing.  Shameful if VAR is going to mess these types of calls up.

      This game was moons better and more entertaining than the product 25% of the premier league teams put out there with 11 men behind the ball and no desire to get out of their own box hoping to steal a point.

      Hoping England beat USA tonight. Can't stand that USA team.

      But if England do go out, it's got to be via a controversial/tight VAR call.  ;)

      That will do.

      I've suffered the disappointment of many England defeats but not this. This is barely football so for me it simply means nothing.

      Fair play to the women though, they picked themselves up and took the VAR call without dispute after their goal was disallowed. They were if course buoyed by hope, the game was still  very much theirs. They then benefited from VAR but wasted that golden chance.

      Was a penalty though. Correct decision. That's VAR. The rules are the rules mantra.

      What needs to change is the communication. We need to know why some incidents get looked at but others don't. And if the decision has been made by the officials in the VAR room, then what is the point in the referee spending minutes to go and check the same videos?

      Was actually a fairly entertaining game but the US team are about the only team that has any kind of wow factor, both their goals were quality, whilst England's was slightly lucky scuffed shot. Having said that England played pretty good and the Woman's game is improving every time I watch it.

      its the continued "hype" about Woman's football that puts me off because it just isn't that good to watch. Its constantly being compared to the mens game which is just nonsense I suspect there isn't a mans team in any of the pro or semi pro leagues that couldn't beat the World Champions.
      The BBC going on about reaching our first World Cup final since 1966 which is just nonsense.
      If they just let the game develop it will improve just stop with the hype.

      4 years on after sacking the manager the "lionesses" go from 3rd to 4th under the guidance of the other half of the chuckle brothers.
      Their collective success as football manager is truly inspiring

      Entertaining 1st half. US got lucky at the end with the Dutch unable to capitalize but for the most part dominated the half. Dutch goalie with a few clutch saves.
