Cameroon's goal in added time was great technique by the goal scorer. It was, however, bad sportsmanship to continue celebrating like they did. And then have the player get injured because of it was a bit much to deal with. Why? Just score the goal, celebrate and then get ready to play out the remaining seconds in the match. But then again, celebration in the Woman's World Cup seems to be a issue nowadays and no one seems to be following Carly Lloyd's golf clap sarcastic celebration.

Sure seems like the USWNT dominated that first half more than a 1-0 score reflects.

Tobin Heath is a beast! That was an absolute great play on her goal. Her dribbling is World Class and I doubt there a defender who can stay with her. Beautiful! Scary when they decided to let VAR take a look at whether Carly Lloyd was offsides on the same play.

Norway vs Australia is one of the most exciting matches I've seen in a good long while. Shame it has to go to penalty kicks. It should have ended in a dramatic late goal score. Here we go...penalty kicks to declare a winner.

And Norway advances on a 4-1 penalty advantage. Shame it ended this way, both sides had great chances to win in the regular 90 minutes and Norway had excellent chances to win in extra time. Had it not been for the Australian keeper, Norway would have advanced with a one or two goal advantage after the extra time. Still, in spite of the anti-climatic penalty shootout, the match was worthy of great applause for drama and excitement by both sides. If England advances past Cameroon, these Viking women from Norway will give England a run for their money.

If the Norwegian women don't play Ride of the Valkyries when they storm the field, it's a damn shame. 
The rules of distinction were thrown out with the baseball cap.  It does not lend itself to protocol.  It is found today on youth in homes, classrooms, even in fine restaurants.  Regardless of its other consequences, this is a breach against civility.  A civilized man should avoid this mania.

Cameroon got a potentially game-changing goal taken away because a player had about 1 inch of their back heel ruled offside on replay.
You may ask yourself, "How do I work this?"

England will have to play a lot better to beat Norway. The Norwegians won't miss those sitters, and if the English defense plays like they did today, Norway will also create a lot more of those sitters.

Absofreakinglutely! Helga the ax weilder... err... the goalie on the Norway team is one scary Viking. She could be in any Viking movie that features a shield maiden warrior and everyone would be convinced she has to be a product of CG and not a real person. The fact that they play a solid defense and just enough offense is a testament of how they will not only defend their turf, but also get on their horses and attack your land as well... and take it! Can you tell I kinda like this Norway side?

Sloppy play by USA allows Spain to tie it at 1-1 at 9:00.

Spain is going toe to toe with and not intimidated at all by the US squad.

It was a good match for Spain, kind of sloopy for the USA. But that is what is going to happen for the rest of the tournament, hard marking, slowing down the ball, don't let the US get going in any way shape or form. The USA squad will have to be patient with what is going to be the opposition's approach and work in to win matches like they did today.

Certainly would help if the US ladies had any accuracy what so ever on their balls in the box. So many whiffed chances thanks to bad passes.

Also would help if the coach didn’t insist on playing a clearly hobbled Alex Morgan for 80 minutes.
