Why do you think it's strange?

The Nations Cup finals were last week, The Copa America is currently taking place in Brazil. The European U21's are underway in Italy, The African Cup of Nations is about to start in Egypt and if anyone was really desperate for some football you could always watch Mexico in the CONCACAF Gold Cup :oops:

I have seen a few segments on ESPN about the women, but even they seem to find it a problem to muster any enthusiasm.
They have an ex womens world cup player who says things like "xxxxxx scored in the 79th minute and that makes her the leading scorer in WORLD CUP HISTORY ....... and I (and i'm sure most others) have never even heard of her.
Just about the only things to have come out of the tournament so far, are, that an American woman can count to five on her fingers whilst over celebrating the 12th or 13th goal against the opposition =D> =D> :roll: , and that in an attempt to raise the profile of the competition the organisers are desperate for the hosts to do well to the extent that when they didnt look like winning they gifted them a penalty, when they then missed it, they used VAR to prove the goalkeeper was a few mms off the line requiring it to be retaken, when they scored the retaken penalty VAR conveniently failed to notice that several French forwards had encroached by 2 metres (not mm) so it was NOT again retaken [-X [-X [-X

I suppose its summed up really by the fact that England played Scotland (The old enemy) and it got more coverage in the American Press than it did in UK ....... on a scale of 1(min) - 10 (max) for interest Womens World Cup probably ranks between 1 and 2

It depends on which country you live in. Here in Toronto, the media are trying to whip up some enthusiasm for the games, but outside of a few female soccer fans, it is going to be a tough goal to achieve. So there is some interest for the women's world cup in Canada, but not much...maybe 3-4 on your scale.

Same here in the UK. The BBC is in overdrive trying to promote it. It's an enjoyable watch in it's own way but, not comparable to mens football so, why try?

In a perverse way I almost hope England get knocked out and the Beeb are left with a prime time slot to show Sweden play Canada!

Sweden vs. Canada might surprise, and be a good game.

The Swedish goalkeeper came up big, and Sweden pushed Canada aside, 1-0.

best match yesterday Spain-USA , the women play better football than the men , USA awarded 2 penalties , the second one was not a penalty to me , but that not whats counting , Spain out...
today the underdogs from Holland against Japan , and Italy should not have problems with China , but it still is a game ;)

Why do you think Italy (a team that hasn't even competed at this stage for 20 odd years) would "not have problems with China" ?
their world rankings are 15 & 16 which would tend to suggest a much closer match

my comment was based on their performance here , rankings mean nothing if at the time you don't play well,and my prediction was not of...the dutch ? lucky penalty ,was again not a penalty to me , from now on during training will be the goal of kicking the ball accurately against an arm :(

Yes, I felt sorry for Japan, played better, well organised, but didn't manage to quite finish. Score 1-1 and then in c the 88th minute a questionable penalty against them. Lucky Netherlands.
