Womens World Cup

The Women’s football World Cup 2007 has been underway in China for the last 5 days. All of the favourite teams have done well so far, and Germany (see team photo) broke a few records by destroying Argentina 11-0 in the opening game. Earlier today Germany fought out a goal less draw with England which was a fair result. This means if both teams win their respective last matches then they will both be through to the knockout stages of the competition.

It appears that the Chinese had been spying on the Danish team prior to the match between the two countries in which China won 3-2. One incident included Chinese men with cameras hiding behind a one way mirror in a room where the Danish team were holding a discussion about tactics for the upcoming game. The Danes reported the incident to police and FIFA and it has been consequently decided that no more action will be taken - Intriguing stuff.

The Haddock family were disappointed that Louise Hanson did not play for Denmark against China as we have met her several times when the Juniorette has attended football school in Frankfurt. Hopefully she will play in the game tomorrow against New Zealand.

A fair result Mr. Haddock? Fair? I know you're living in Germany and the juniorette may have influenced you with her mingling with the German team, but fair? Are you a proper Englishman or what? A fair result? Nonsense! And this is in no way because I'd bet a colleague a fiver that Germany would win...

I watched the England v Japan match. Pretty good stuff. I am ashamed to say I had assumed women's football would be rather dull but I was actually quite riveted.

Was that discussion held in the changing room? Naughty Chinese! As for the Swedish women, I don't know what has happened to them. Maybe they could just clone Carolina Kluft and create a team of those clones. I'm sure she/they would win the championships easily. ;-)

Inactualfact - I do not no vot zu means! :)

Beaman - The level of womens footy is getting better all the time :)

Swenglishexpat - I was expecting Sweden to do better as they made to the final 4 years ago. A team made of Carolina Kluft clones may be not a bad idea! :)

That's absolutely sad the chinese have to CHEAT! They are big cheaters and they should have been banned for such actions. I hope it blows up in their face one day because that is not right!
