White people seem to be over represented and it defies the laws of space and time that the Yanks can be good at an international sport. Sad to see France go out. Let’s hope England knock the septics off.


We noticed that too. It’s the primeire women’s sport in the U.S., so guess what happens?


No need to guess, like the men’s version, it’s pay to play from an early age and thus dominated by white, middle-class, kids whose parents can afford to pay and to the detriment and near exclusion of most ethnic minorities, in particular those ones where the sport has the biggest following, ie the Latino community. There have been some interesting articles on the phenomenon and some innovative programs to get inner city kids playing but it’s working against a fairly firmly established regime. By contrast have a look at the French team and the effort they have made to get young French-African and North African girls from the banlieues playing.

The difference betwixt the woeful Yank men’s team and the dominant women’s is that there is and has been for a long time, a viable women’s club competition in the US of A. That gives them enough raw material to forge a team. The only way a Brazilian female player can afford to make football a professional career is to bugger off to France or the US.

And a former Flamenguista seals the win over Chile! :D

Come back Paolo, the failed drug swabs are forgiven.

south africa with the goal of the tournament so far, team effort and passing in perfection.
nigeria in a thriller through against cameroon, go supereagles! hope that clarence stays at the helm of the cameroonian national side, they played great football, too.

sweden reacquisitioned their groove back, if only they had played in the semis the way they did today.

argentina - chile, more of a pub brawl than football, but thankfully the argentinians put the chilean apes (notably medel and vidal) in the backseat.

:D :D :D :D :D

3:1 and even though it was a ridiculously harsh penalty I didn’t mind Paolo getting one back for Peru. With the possible exception of Dani Alves I reckon he’s played more games on that field than anyone else on the pitch.

The icing on the cake was the very cool reception a nervous looking Bolsonaro received. Loved it when Tite ducked the attempted hug.

My cat was cowering beneath the tables back home in Rio last night, certain the apocalypse was nigh.
