    Correa was great against England. I don't know why but I don't think she can do it twice in a row

    02' 0-0 Cuthbert rushed half-volley from arc tangent left, high wide right.

    03' 0-0 Crichton slides under/through Jaimes's planted right leg, wrenches her own right hip, both stay down. Brief stoppage, both resume?

    17' 0-0 Bonsegundo receives to 10m mid-left, cross to 5m right post, Larroquette outjumps 1 and heads off crossbar 1/5 right. Ball bounces down to 6-top center, Jaimes chests it across to 7m 6-right, right roundhouse shot off a defender's chest, deflects rightward to Larroquette. Her shot blocked point-blank.

    19' 1-0 Scotland left throw-in at 24m, Emslie hooks a ground pass toward arc top box left. Barroso kicks upfield, Cuthbert blocks it point-blank, ball reflects to box top left. Barroso overpursues, Cuthbert counters right through her void, down mid-left to 11m mid-left (past 3 defenders stepping up too far past her), blasts right foot on the run to left post face-high hard. Correa double-blocks ball down to the left, it bounces out to 3m 5-left. Cuthbert follows, swings left roundhouse backpass to 5m center, Little stretch-poke volleys low across mouth, into 1/4 right back low. Scotland are rewarded for their sheer aggressiveness.

    36' 1-0 Scotland pass to 5m 5-left, Correa slides down to smother. Cuthbert slides through just before her, rattles ball off Correa's arms, Correa hangs on.

    37' 1-0 Scotland delicate inside-out pass drops perfectly for Cuthbert cutting on a flat diagonal between Barroso and Cometti, to 15m mid-right. Backpass to Evans thereat, Evans drives down mid-right to 2m, cross headed away -- directly to Cuthbert unmarked at 12m 6-right. Cuthbert chases the bounce, gets closed down by 2, all 3 slide and her shot blocked high leftward.

    38' 1-0 Emslie backheel down wide left for LB Docherty overlapping, 1-v-1 on Bravo. Docherty slips down under pressure, Bravo bravely leaps over her extended left leg and lands closer to far touch, digs at ball, Docherty bumps her over. Foul on Docherty.

    43' 1-0 Bravo cross from 22m wide right to 6-top 1/3 rihgt, Alexander comes out and basket-catches.

    45' 1-0 Evans plays Little down box right to 10m, one-touch no-look backpass to 14m mid-right is right into a clump of defenders. +1'.

    45+1' (of +1') 1-0 Scotland square pass to Weir unmarked at 30m center, she dribbles to 22m arc left, shoots left foot gyroball tailing off high wide left.

    46' 1-0 Weir scoops a perfect medium pass down wide left for Emslie. Cross from 12m wide left to 13m center, headed away.

    47' 1-0 Weir crosses from 6m wide left to 4m 2/3 right, Correa catches high.

    48' 1-0 Cuthbert pokes right roundhouse across Stabile at 10m wide right, follows to box right, Barroso clears over endline.

    49' 2-0 Weir right ck, tight inswing to 5m right post, Larroquette dive-heads away through box top right. Little collects, turns away to 27m mid-right, pass to Weir at 12m right touch. Scotland pull out the textbook, run a double front-cut: Corsie cuts in front of Barroso to 6-top 1/4 right (and draws her attention), Beattie front-cuts RB Bravo caught ball-watching (she never reacts). Weir fast cross inswings to to 1/3 left, Beattie is alone thereat, tuck-heads a rocket over Correa's right hand, into 2/5 left back high. Corsie jumps on her back and goes for a ride -- Beattie might be the one player on Scotland who makes Corsie look small :giggle:

    2019 WWC 101: Front-cut the standing defender. She who goes to the ball, wins :coffee: (Somewhere, Cristiane and Miedema nod)

    It's over. No way Argentina come back from 0-2 down.

    55' 2-0 Banini receives a give-and-go to 30m center, has no support in box (a 2-v-4), pulls up. Eventually, Banini serves into box but it floats to 6-top right post, nobody there, Alexander catches.

    60' 2-0 Argentina subs in (1 of 3) #22 Milagros Menéndez for #10 Estefanía Banini.

    I'm laughing at this ref, she's so funny with how she's dealing with player complaints. I like her.

    I considered it over at 1-0 already: this Argentina just can't score.

    Is pink a normal jersey color for Scotland? I really don't like it.

    68' 2-0 Cometti tries a waist-high ball stop at 25m wide right, ball glances off her and bounces behind, she slide-lunges at it. Cuthbert hops over Cometti, touches centerward, hops over Barroso's slide-tackle try, turns upfield through 23m mid-right to 16m. Hard right foot shot toward right post, Correa kick-saves over endline right.

    69' 3-0 Weir right ck, to 11m 6-right. Crichton jumps at the back edge of the scrum, drives a header toward 1/5 right 1/2 high. Correa dives and double blocks ball off right post, it bounces straight out at 5m 1/6 right. Cuthbert is unmarked thereat, swings high right roundhouse and volleys into 1/3 left back with net empty.

    70' 3-0 Argentina subs in (2 of 3) #20 Dalila Ippolito for #9 Sole Jaimes.

    And this is the kind of scoreline most people were expecting in Argentina matches.

    Edit: And Argentina have now scored. Credit to them.

    Edit: What the heck? I've jinxed Scotland. What is going on? Watching Japan-England and only following the score of Scotland-Argentina.

    74' 3-1 Argentina gk(?), Bonsegundo backheads upfield at circle center. Menéndez challenges Beattie(?) for ball, it leaks leftward. Ippolito collects at circle top left, leads a 3-v-3 up centerline, RB Smith pinches centerward too far to stop ball. Diagonal pass behind Smith sends Menéndez unmarked through box top mid-left to 9m 6-left, right instep shot across mouth under Alexander's left hand, into 1/4 right back low. Clinical finish on a fast break, with Scotland maybe just a bit too relaxed at (their) circle back.

    79' 3-2 Argentina dribble over midfield left touch, long pass to arc top mid-left, Smith clangs it away to Bonsegundo at 22m mid-left. Bonsegundo does a drag-left spin-cw, then a drag-right spin-cw, Smith backs off and cedes 4m of space. Bonsegundo shoots right instep bend over/through Alexander's right fingers, off crossbar 1/4 left, it bounces straight down fully over before Alexander throws it out. Incroyable!

    82' 3-2 Argentina subs in (3 of 3) #14 Miriam Mayorga for #5 Vanesa Santana.

    Well, I was wrong. Argentina got 2 back in quick succession. Wow! Game on now.
