A bit of a no brainer since the bookies are offering 4/5 on for the US and 10/3 for Japan.

Yes, heartbreaking. They were amateurs up against professionals though, so we should be very very proud of how well they did.

Except I offered that same bet here BEFORE the U.S.A. played Germany that the U.S.A. would go
all the way.
Now come on guys, just for once here, just once, how about some respect for the
good old UNITED STATES of AMERICA for once, just once.

I don't watch or care about Soccer, most Americans don't care at all about it. We have real Football Hahaha!

How about the Chicago Blackhawks? 2015 Stanley Cup Champions!!!!!!! The best Hockey team ever, they are becoming a Dynasty:)

It's a pussy sport compared to the NFL. (Real football)

Blackhawks have a LOoooong way to go to ever be what the Red Wing team was.

GO U.S.A. Women !!!!!!
Bring home the Cup.

Is that the one where they're all padded up and keep stopping and starting for the commercials? They'd last 2 minutes against Castleford Rugby League...

They would step on those little squirts.
NFL players average 300 pounds at 6'-6" tall or more.
And let's make a bet who could run the 40 faster. HA, you lose.

Go U.S.A. Women !

Congratulations United States of America 2015 Women World Cup Champions !
Way to go girls, you make us proud to be Americans.

Congratulations Ladies!!! Go USA!!!!!!

Is that the one where they're all padded up and keep s

from causing serious injury yes!

I like Rugby, don't fully understand the rules. Is that the sport were they are all huddled up trying to grab the ball at the same time?

Doesn't look like they would need padding, its more like guys wrestling not hitting each other at full speed.

Its ok we Americans are used to having everything we do be discredited by jealous Euro`s

And the end of the day the Americans did win, just accept it and don't be so miserable.

This sport (soccor) is very important to Europeans and South Americans.
Kinda like basketball, baseball or real football is in the U.S.A.
"If" another country in the world could beat us in those sports we would be miserable too.

Never seen a rugby player at the side of the pitch receiving oxygen. American Football players on the other hand...

I admire the skill and tactics involved with American Football, but there's no denying that rugby players are tougher. 80 minutes of being slammed into repeatedly vs the stop-start nature of American Football is just no contest.

Oh yeah, They love it! Ive tried to watch several times, just can't get into it.
On the other hand I never met a European who liked Baseball, they say its too slow and boring. It is if you never played it or don't know the rules and its hard to explain it in one game. I was at the Cubs game yesterday:)

Im waiting for Football season to start my Bears should do well this year!!!lol

I can't get into watching a bunch of guys/women with knee high socks running bag and forth and back
and forth until one guy finally gets lucky enough to kick one in for a GOAL and the game ends 1-0. Pfffft
Even golf is more exciting then soccor.
Real football takes real men to play the game.
Best the Europeans stick to cricket.

Exactly, a tougher sport for tougher players.

No helmet, no padding, just pain and skill.

Speaking of sport, it's the Polish League of American Football final in Wrocław on Saturday. Wrocław Panthers vs Gdynia Seahawks. Last year, the Seahawks won 41-32 in the final against the Panthers, but this time round, the Panthers have home advantage.

I'll be in attendance, of course. I'm quite looking forward to it - the tactics and execution of those tactics are an amazing sight. I don't think any other sport is so detailed and intricate as American Football - although the Canadian variety is faster, I think. Obviously the standard isn't very high, but it's still worth a watch in my opinion.

Team U.S.A. world Champions were looking hot in the celebration.
Nice to see a woman's team look like women instead of having a five o'clock shadow like some
of the other womens teams in the championship.

You haven't got a clue what you are writing about, and probably never watched one game in the WWC. Americans never go to McDonalds?, the home of the "super size me"

England's ladies played very well in the competition, and were unlucky not to get to the final, due to an og in the second minute of injury time against Japan. They also beat the Germans for the 3rd place play off, a team which had many professionals. I don't think they would have beaten the USA in the final, as they are a very good team with some fine players, but I'm sure they would have put up a better performance than Japan, who started of so badly and the game was over as a contest after 15 minutes. The best team won the final, there's no doubt about that.

Spot on and worth remembering that they were pretty well amateurs with jobs to do, up against highly sponsored and supported professionals from USA and Japan.

johnny reb

Team U.S.A is all amateurs as far as I know.
Not to take away from them that all the other teams were as highly sponsored and supported by professionals as team U.S.A.
Same with the men's soccar teams......are they not all professionals ?

jon357

With vast sponsorship. The men's teams are not amateur - that's rugby union.

As much as I laughed (being Scottish, and therefore pleased when England screw up in sport) - I felt incredibly sorry for England. It was a brutal way to go out, and it really makes you wonder if English football isn't cursed in some way.

The World Soccer Champions U.S.A. Team felt very bad also.
You always want to play against the best players for bragging rights.

With vast sponsorship

Same in the Olympics, the smaller and poorer countries don't have near the sponsorship
that the wealthier countries do nor the field of athelete's to choose from.
