    May as well have a positive soccer thread. US Women's team up 12-0 on Thailand in opening match, breaking the Women's World Cup record for goals in a match. 9 goals in the second half.

    Edit: Now Lucky 13. Carly Lloyd got one in stoppage time. Alex Morgan with 5 on the night.

    I did my daily google of "Georgia Tech Football" to see if any new articles have popped and it turned up a half-dozen tweets comparing this game to our Cumberland win.

    So this was just a ho-hum 61-0 beatdown of directional Louisiana

    Some French home cooking today. Tied with Nigeria after 74 minutes, then Nigeria gets a player sent off, France penalty kick hits post and misses, overturned on VAR due to goalie moving too soon, redux is converted. Final 1-0 Frogs.

    Spain gets it back in 9th minute due to stupid giveaway by US goalie.

    Pretty chippy action so far.

    That sequence with the Rapinoe yellow was bizarre. She beat the girl clean but grazed her with her hand as she went by. Spanish girl went down like a sniper victim as they do. Ref played on for a good 3/4 seconds before stopping play and giving a yellow. It was so late I thought she was gonna give it to the Spanish girl for diving. Don’t see how you can call a foul so late on a play.

    It's Rapinoe. France probably wants her out for the next match so they'll call a 2nd on her in the upcoming half so she's ruled out for the quarters.

    Starting to get out of hand. Some naasty challenges going unpunished. That last tackle from the Spanish girl was a RC in my book if she hadn’t clipped the ball first. Probably would still give her a YC even with getting some of the ball. You just can’t go studs up that aggressively into a challenge. Ref didn’t even talk to her.

    Jesus that’s not a PK. This ref is all over the place.

    Well yeah you can’t overturn it on that replay. You can’t tell if there’s contact or not. Which is why you don’t blow the whistle on a nothing play like that in the box in the first place.

    Oh well. Winnings winning. Just would rather it be earned.

    The öööö ref? You can just run the goalkeeper now? Wtf is this chick doing out there.

    We look like öööö today and have definitely benefitted from some luck with the PKs. That said, I'll take it.
