I'm giving England the benefit of the doubt today.
 
2022-07-06 3:07:29 PM  
Austria are pressing early and have a fast start.  A goal is certainly looming.
 
2022-07-06 3:12:58 PM  
England finally get some rhythm and an attack, but there was nothing on that final header.
 
2022-07-06 3:17:56 PM  
Nice run...too bad there was not a shot to finish it.
 
2022-07-06 3:18:48 PM  
Goal given after it was close to the line and being cleared away.  Yikes.
 
2022-07-06 3:19:46 PM  
That was really close.  Goal line technology would be really useful in this matter.  VAR now looking for offside.
 
2022-07-06 3:20:45 PM  
Goal stands.  1-0 to England.
 
2022-07-06 3:22:16 PM

Good keeping.  That ball was bouncing all about and could have gone anywhere.

I haven't been able to keep track of names right now.

Thanks.  I'm also going through the BoJo thread I got greened in the PolTab.

It's interesting to me that about 1/3 of the goals in this tournament will come from set pieces.  That strikes me as rather high.

Where did that bit of info come from?

Seems par for the course for a major international tournament to me. If I had the energy, I'd say how many goals in the Men's Euros and the 2018 World Cup were set pieces. It felt like a lot, but that might be because I was watching Southgate's England more than other teams.
 
2022-07-06 3:38:41 PM  
England looking for another but just can't get that last touch.  That cross was terrible.

Sir Ian mentioned it.

I'd rather have the Lionesses taking PKs
 
2022-07-06 3:45:52 PM  
Austria coming close just before the break.  Had she kept that shot down, she might have beaten the keeper.
 
2022-07-06 3:48:05 PM  
Oh should be 2!
 
2022-07-06 3:48:35 PM  
that first touch gave the keeper an extra step, great save
 
2022-07-06 3:48:40 PM  
Oh that should have been 2-0.  Heads up defending by the keeper to cut off that line.
 
2022-07-06 3:49:05 PM  
Should have shot that ball and not passed it.
Pass made it difficult to control.
 
2022-07-06 3:49:14 PM  
another chance for england
 
2022-07-06 3:49:28 PM  
Oh what a great save right at the end.  I thought that was going to be the 2nd for sure.
 
2022-07-06 3:51:05 PM  
Missed everything but the last couple minutes, 2nd half should be cracking
 
2022-07-06 3:51:33 PM  
So while this bit of bread and circuses is going on, BoJo's government is certainly in disarray with currently 39 MPs and cabinet members resigning their positions within his administration.  The Tories are not happy with that Deputy Whip appointment.
 
2022-07-06 3:54:22 PM  
Finally saw the goal line tech for the goal, and that was only over by inches.  Wow.

Even on the replay I could tell it was over the line.

Well, I could tell, but I really wanted to see how close it was.
 
2022-07-06 4:27:23 PM  
more english corners
 
2022-07-06 4:27:30 PM  
Austria just lacking in the final 3rd right now.  They are going to need a breakaway.
 
2022-07-06 4:31:13 PM  
made a mess of that, anothe golden chance for England
 
2022-07-06 4:31:26 PM  
That would have been a calamitous 2nd goal.
 
2022-07-06 4:34:48 PM  
Nowhere near enough Austrians on the far side of the box for that set piece.  Such a wasted chance.
 
2022-07-06 4:36:27 PM  
And the England counter falls short.
 
2022-07-06 4:37:44 PM  
out if nowhere Austria forces a big diving save
 
2022-07-06 4:40:46 PM  
Austria screaming for a penalty.
 
2022-07-06 4:41:37 PM  
natural position ruling, no handball
 
2022-07-06 4:43:51 PM  
passing accuracy aint been great for both sides
 
2022-07-06 4:48:35 PM  

whither_apophis: passing accuracy aint been great for both sides


Says something about the defending of both sides, and considering how close that goal was to being cleared off the line, this match could easily be scoreless.

1-0 to the Lionessess

England hang on to win.
 
2022-07-06 4:52:53 PM  
Tomorrow's group A match will certainly be interesting.
