Womens Euros 2017 #20

Denmark 0 – 0 Austria (penalties)

I watched sneaky bits of the first half at work, then cycled home, found my brother Jamie hungry on my doorstep, after a London to Edinburgh cycle ride. Gav was supposed to be cooking dinner but he was in the pub, so I cooked dinner in record time and we made it on to the sofa, beers in hand, to watch the penalties after extra time.

Womens Euros #19

OH NO!!!!
Karen Bardsley broke her leg in the France – England game. She is such a hero that she kept playing for a while, and she didn’t need a stretcher.
All faith now in Siobhan Chamberlain for the semi finals against Netherlands.

Germany 1 – 2 Denmark

Germany scored first, and it looked as though they would win no problem, but then Nadia Nadim headed a tidy goal and it all started to go wrong for Germany.

Womens Euro #14

France 1 – 1 Switzerland

I watched this game two days late as a way of getting around the shockingly bad ‘live stream’ from All4. I already knew the final score, I already knew that England will face France on Sunday. I hadn’t caught any of France’s games so far in the tournament, and since they are favourites to win I was interested to see them play. They are amazing and this game had me on the edge of my seat even though I knew the final outcome. What excitement! I must admit that I was quite happy when Renard got a yellow card ten or so minutes in to the game and so will not play on Sunday. Minutes later a red card left France with 10 players on the pitch and they proved that even outnumbered they are a massive force to be reckoned with.
