France beat Norway 2-1 with another goal by Virgil van Dijk Wendy Renard. It was an own goal though.

Wasn't crazy about the penalty in that game.

"Home advantage" crappy refereeing or crappy defence?

I thought it was a bad call.  The defender kicked the ball and the follow through hit the other chick's leg.

Copa América has started!

Among the first results :

Brazil 3 Bolivia 0
Colombia 2  Argentina 0

Argentina collapsed in the end while Brazil won without really any suffering.

Did the Swedish goalie give Thailand a sympathy goal?  Breakaway starts at 1:02 of clip.

Paraguay-Qatar 2-2. Yes, this is Copa América, but having the tournament at the same time as the Copa de Oro makes it impossible for Mexico and the US to attend it.
Deserved tie for Qatar, which was losing 2-0.

The other favorite, Uruguay won 4-0 vs Ecuador.

Japan playing soon (stop laughing).

Spain makes it to the knockout stages of the women's WC for the first time ever. We'll probably play the USA, so that's the end of the line.

I guess you did not like the penalty in France vs Nigeria. "Home advantage"

https://www.france24.com/en/20190617-france-women-world-cup-nigeria-norway-south-korea

Penalty kick, red card following a second yellow, retaken due to a goalkeeper foot not being on the line.
Double standards since French players entered the penalty box before the penalty shot (as per the rules null).

Those were two separate penalties, yeah?  Goalie was clearly off the line, and I didn't see the French chicks coming in early.  The second yellow on the mugging in the box I thought was warranted.

Second yellow seems acceptable to me. The yellow card for the goalkeeper, obviously no.
Nope, penalty shot was retaken since the first one was deemed invalid because the goalkeeper had left too early the line with both feet. As for clearly, that's by a few centimetres. Only one foot is allowed.
French chicks came in too early for the second take, leading to the goal.

Strangely enough, the non-French Francophone press, say Belgian, has a different take than French press.  :P

Quote
Les garants du jeu s'appuie en fait sur la loi 14 du règlement relative au penalty, qui stipule qu’au moment du tir, "le gardien de but doit avoir au moins un pied sur sa ligne". Pour Melissa Borjas et ses assistants, Chiamak Nnadozie a quitté sa ligne de but trop tôt. Elle écope même d'un carton jaune. Dans le même temps, deux Françaises ont pénétré dans la surface, ce qui est interdit aussi... Wendie Renard se présente une seconde fois. Cette fois, sa frappe termine au fond des filets.

I didn't realize the goalie only had to keep one foot.  I might agree then about the shoddy call.

To be fair, the rules have been changed a bit lately. Soon, only players of the defending team on free-kicks. No longer both teams, which was a way by the attacking team to induce confusion for the defending goalkeeper.
Such a set-up piece goal was scored in the Portugal-Switzerland game in the League of Nations which prompted badly informed commentators to say that the goal should have been refused.
Rule supposed to be in effect after 25th June, since the League of Nations tournament and qualifiers had started the year before, and ended June 9th.

There are pretty strict rules in football regarding nationality. You can't just fake a nationality and play for whatever team you like.
