Lost 0-3.

Great commitment tonight, but a really poor team display.

Dutch kept possession well and we seemed to be determined to knock it long at every opportunity.

We've been direct all tournamentz but we played more build up in our own half previously. 

I still enjoyed the match. Something refreshingly honest and engaging about two teams that don't have perfect technique. 

Well done England and congratulations to Holland.

 I echo your thoughts my man

While I've admired their progress, let's not pretend that the quality has been anything but awful on occasions.

Bar perhaps two or three players, we have been technically poor, given the ball away a ridiculous number of times, lacked shape, made poor decisions, and reminded me of a Division Three side from 1973 that insists on going long ball at every opportunity.

This side looks to be on the same trajectory as the men's side, getting left behind by superior coaching in other countries.

I had planned to watch it but forgot we were out tonight. Followed the match on my phone. Gutted we didn't make the final but hey ho, it is England after all. 😕

But, really, were they really good, or are we not allowed to criticise?

Just get the feeling that because the media have started to get a sniff of a potential new money stream that the sport is being bigged up before it is fully formed.

convince me otherwise peeps

Talking of women's sport, how unlucky was Laura Muir tonight?

She just missed out on a bronze medal and the photo finish showed that it was actually Caster Semenya's cock that just swung across the line to take third.
