    I need Labbé to post a shootout for my Fantasy Football WWC Team. :ninja:

    It won't be easy, New Zealand look like a more than decent team, judging from pre-WWC friendly matches and the first match vs Netherlands.

    Who was first and who was the copycat with the rose-tinted hairdress? Schmidt or Rapinoe? :cautious:

    Riviere for Chapman (and Lawrence => LB).

    Identical.

    Neither team has great depth, and they need the points?

    That looks a beautiful stadium/field. France has some excellent football venues--a great host nation, as expected.

    Canada should have left Christine Sinclair in 2015. She's too slow.

    If Canada can field Sinclair why cant Germany reactivate Birgit Prinz?

    04' 0-0 Chance(?) long cross from 25m right touch to 8m left post, Riviere heads away from Gregorius's far-post run.

    07' 0-0 Beckie long shross from box top wide left to goalline center, Nayler catches head-high with back foot in goal. Both teams are looking to play wide and cross, but Canada sustain more of the attacks.

    09' 0-0 Riviere holds at arc top box right, Canada ping triangles at 30m wide right ... finally backpass and switch left. Long forward pass to 22m center, Sinclair jumps in front of Bowen and back-heads into box. Beckie runs on to 8m left post, jumps between 2 and heads softly to Nayler at 1/4 right.

    11' 0-0 Beckie shoots from arc top mid-left but gets no power, it rolls to Nayler at 1/4 left low.

    12' 0-0 Canada promptly regain, Fleming passes to Beckie at 12m left touch, her shross bends wide left into left side netting low.

    13' 0-0 Canada promptly regain, probe the right, switch left to Beckie. Beckie turns Bott through 5m box left, cross blocked out to box top mid-right. New Zealand clear long, Buchanan(?) long backpass.

    14' 0-0 The pattern emerges: New Zealand are in a shell behind circle back, and aren't coming forward. Canada are free to collect and probe starting at 30m. Beckie cross from 9m wide left reflects off Bott's right fist/lower abs, over endline right.


    15' 0-0 Stoppage: Bott stays down, gasping. It jammed her right wrist? That could wreck your equilibrium, like being seasick without the magic wrist strap.

    That doesn't look good for Bott. Ball struck her hand, and the wrist took the worst of it.

    They need experience and they don't have enough talented players. Talent pool is not deep like USA or Japan.

    Goodness me! Sinclair off the bar and then Buchanan's shot was saved on the line. It's still 0-0 somehow.

    At first I thought jammed wrist, but just looking at how the trainers are working with her, I'm wondering if she has a broken forearm.

    In fact, by watching replays, it looks like the whole arm had a strange turning. CJ Bott looks in so great pain (almost in tears) that I in fact suspect something is broken.

    Despite the quick and careful substitution by Sermanni, Ferns are understandably shocked and risk taking a goal from subsequent CK (crossbar + goal-line save from a DF).

    17' 0-0 Trainers have wrapped a portable splint around Bott's right hand/forearm, help her walk into end zone and behind goal. She broke her wrist?? :cry:

    18' 0-0 Canada left ck, inswings to 1m 4-left, Schmidt back-heads it off Stott, it pops up and across to 3m right post. Sinclair heads off crossbar 1/3 right, ball drops at 2m left post. Buchanan heads off Stott, ball pops up to goalline 1/4 left, Bowen heads away to the left, New Zealand finally poke it out.

    18' 0-0 New Zealand subs in (1 of 3) #10 Annalie Longo for #4 Catherine Bott.
