The first 3 goals were stopable, IMHO, by a GK in form, even the own goal.
A GK comanding HER area would have called off the defender and got that ball. The 2nd & 3rd goals were shamefull; as was the Swiss refs decision to expell Boxx.
That said, I don't think Brazil could have been stopped. They played as though they wanted it more that OUR ladies. That said, I STILL say that Brazil is "IN NO WAY 4 GOALS BETTER THAT OUR LADIES"
. Though the results speak for themselves, the coach further unsetteling an already unsettled team as well as the expulsion of Boxx doomed this TEAM.
I am also a bit taken aback by Solo's reaction
. WE all agree, except for the manager, that the decision to sit her was WRONG, but raising cane after the fact is "not professional"
, IMHO. As a result, I would also sit her for the 3rd place match
