1 2-3, rough start.
You're a failure at cheating?
:D Not really. Half of my now 2 points (go Canada!) is a "cheat". :oops:

Tonight, Fox:
Netherlands > USA, 9:00 PM EDT. Go Oranje, but I don't hate the USWNT.

Nice assist, nice goal. Shots through traffic look more difficult, but they're often more difficult for a goalie to anticipate and track.

Oooh, that one just now was close, barely high.

Edit, 63:00: Corner kicks were always nerve-wracking. 1-1.
This game is a rematch of the 2019 Final - US 2-0.

Edit, final: 1-1, rematch in the knockout rounds?

Bad blood between Horan and Danielle van de Donk, that goal was sweet retribution.

The current standings in Group E:

United States, 4 points, plus-3 goal difference

Netherlands, 4 points, plus-1 goal difference

Portugal, 0 points, minus-1 goal difference

Vietnam, 0 points, minus-3 goal difference

Portugal and Vietnam play next in Hamilton.

The top two teams in the group will advance, but winning the group has its advantages: The runner-up will most likely walk into a round-of-16 date with Sweden, a top contender, while the group winner has an easier road.

Shoulda run up the score more on Vietnam.

:headscratch: Italy can still win the Group away from Sweden.
Vietnam has been knocked out. Portugal can still catch Netherlands and USWNT, but Vietnam can't.
Ireland, Costa Rica and Zambia have also been knocked out. :(

Tue, 8/1
Vietnam vs Netherlands, 3:00 AM EDT. I don't want to root against Vietnam, but Netherlands could knock the UWWNT out. :problem:

GO:
My guesses are wishes based on a variety of positive and negative prejudices, not in any way informed predictions.

Sun, 7/30
Opps, I would have picked host New Zealand > Switzerland, but I don't hate Switzerland. 0-0
Opps, I would have picked Philippines > Norway in order to help New Zealand. 0-6 :thumbdown:
Switzerland wins Group A. Norway beats out New Zealand for 2nd on a 5-0 GD. :(


Mon, 7/31
Spain > Japan, 3:00 AM EDT. Both advance, regardless.
Costa Rica > Zambia. Both have been knocked out, regardless. 3:00 AM EDT, first I've seen same start times :headscratch: . I wonder which game most will watch? ;)
Australia > Canada, 6:00 AM EDT. Sorry, O Really, but I want the locals to stay excited, especially with New Zealand knocked out.
Ireland > Nigeria, 6:00 AM EDT. Another doubled up kickoff time. :headscratch:

Tue, 8/1
USA > Portugal, 3:00 AM EDT, but I don't hate Portugal.
England > China, 7:00 AM EDT.
Denmark > Haiti, 7:00 AM EDT. Poor Haiti, but I want to make sure that China is knocked out.

Wed, 8/2
Sweden > Argentina, 3:00 AM EDT. Sweden has already advanced, but I want to see South Africa advance. I don't hate Argentina.
South Africa > Italy, 3:00 AM EDT. Seriously, what's with the simultaneous game times all of a sudden, especially when both matter to the same teams?
Panama > France, 6:00 AM EDT. Not likely, but I want to give Jamaica the best chance to advance.
Jamaica > Brazil, 6:00 AM EDT.

Thu, 8/3
Korea Republic > Germany, 6:00 AM EDT. Go Morocco.
Morocco > Colombia, 6:00 AM EDT.

0-1

-0-? I wrote that guess about the USWNT vs Portugal game before listing the other Week 3 games. Now, none of them seem to be tailored for Western Hemisphere viewing :x . Faux is running delayed broadcasts and I'll bet streams for people with the willpower to stay away from all WC news.

Yeah, gotta stay off all devices in between real game time and rerun game time. I don't bother. Tuesday's Portugal vs. United States game, which ends at 4 am EDT, is rebroadcast on FS1 at 7:30 PM EDT. :problem:

Opps, I would have picked host New Zealand > Switzerland, but I don't hate Switzerland. 0-0
Opps, I would have picked Philippines > Norway in order to help New Zealand. 0-6 :thumbdown:
Switzerland wins Group A. Norway beats out New Zealand for 2nd on a 5-0 GD. :(


Mon, 7/31
Spain > Japan, 3:00 AM EDT. Both advance, regardless.
0-4 :thumbdown: . Wow, Japan is for real, wins 3 games and the group!
Costa Rica > Zambia. Both have been knocked out, regardless. 3:00 AM EDT, first I've seen same start times :headscratch: . I wonder which game most will watch? ;)
1-3. Good for Zambia, the lowest ranked team in the WC. 1st ever WC win.
Australia > Canada, 6:00 AM EDT. Sorry, O Really, but I want the locals to stay excited, especially with New Zealand knocked out.
4-0 :clap: . Matildas even win the group :thumbup: . Canada is edged by Nigeria :thumbdown: .
Ireland > Nigeria, 6:00 AM EDT. Another doubled up kickoff time. :headscratch: 0-0 :thumbdown:

Tue, 8/1
USA > Portugal, 3:00 AM EDT, but I don't hate Portugal.
England > China, 7:00 AM EDT.
Denmark > Haiti, 7:00 AM EDT. Poor Haiti, but I want to make sure that China is knocked out.

Wed, 8/2
Sweden > Argentina, 3:00 AM EDT. Sweden has already advanced, but I want to see South Africa advance. I don't hate Argentina.
South Africa > Italy, 3:00 AM EDT. Seriously, what's with the simultaneous game times all of a sudden, especially when both matter to the same teams?
Panama > France, 6:00 AM EDT. Not likely, but I want to give Jamaica the best chance to advance.
Jamaica > Brazil, 6:00 AM EDT.

Thu, 8/3
Korea Republic > Germany, 6:00 AM EDT. Go Morocco.
Morocco > Colombia, 6:00 AM EDT.

1-4, ut-oh.

It's about impossible not to be spoiled.
Yeah, gotta stay off all devices in between real game time and rerun game time. I don't bother. Tuesday's Portugal vs. United States game, which ends at 4 am EDT, is rebroadcast on FS1 at 7:30 PM EDT. :problem:
SPOILER BELOW
Replay on FS2 right now.

Agreed.

... it’s increasingly clear that the gap has closed; that the USWNT are one of eight or nine contenders, rather than one of one favorite.

I don't remember the 2015 WC, but apparently the US stumbled into the knockout round much like this and caught fire, so it can happen.

Sorry (not sorry) but I'm having a hard time rooting very hard for a team that sneaks into the 16 with one win over a weak team and two draws. Go England! Make me old mum proud.
