    Second half has begun.

    The bigger problem has been they went to her after the decisions were made so even if she wasn't rushed to pass judgment, she was basically forced to agree.

    If they let Carli loose on this group, she may very well put up five on her own. They should put Alex at goalie, Heath at center back and Harris in at center forward if it gets too carried away.

    I think they realized the Spain call was a mistake.

    In the 88th minute (@87:58) of the CAN-CAM game yesterday, Zadorsky (CAN) got kicked in the chest above the waist by a CAM defender clearing a ball off the goal line and it wasn't a penalty. She wasn't falling backwards, it was a higher kick, and it was right on the goal line.

    How is the Spain foul, a player falling backwards, 24 yards away from the nearest post out at the corner of the box a penalty and 2nd yellow, but a goal line clearance isn't?

    Goal. Differential. Tiebreaker.

    Ertz appears to be confused where she is supposed to be in relation to Dunn.

    So? She was chose to be part of Fox's team that includes the intellectual titmouse Alexi Lalas as one of their prominent announcers. Admittedly she does raise the intelligence level a bit but her inane comments do not add anything to the broadcast. I would rather go back to South Africa and hear the stupid horns!

    I loved the response from the announcer right after that: "Thank you for your..." *pause* "...opinion"

    48' 3-0 Mewis receives at 15m 6-left with a defender on her back, crabwalks to 10m, scuffs ball toward Morgan. Morgan tries to turn amidst 3, they poke it away.

    48' 3-0 Sung-Ngoen chases down a long pass at 10m right touch, soft cross drops at 4m 6-right and Naeher catches. Something to do.

    That Mewis shot was headed to the keeper. The deflection sent it to the near post.

    Morgan gets her brace from a tap in off of a a free kick. Heath to Horan to Morgan.

    While maybe not savable anyway Thailand's keeper's poor footwork makes her unable to move at all.

    50' 4-0 O'Hara back to Dahlkemper, forward to Rapinoe at 30m center. Rapinoe dribbles right, reverses and goes left, slips a forward pass to S.Mewis facing away at 18m arc left. Mewis spins quickly with no pressure, steps into a left foot blast -- ball deflects off #5 Phancha's left ribs, fastball past Chor Charoenying's right hand, into 1/4 left back 3/4 high hard. Good idea to minimize the number of touches, we've been getting a bit too cute in spaces.

    The US team is one of the greatest teams ever. Why does the Fox crew oversell the team so much.

    Ex: That fourth goal, it wasn’t going in if not deflected. Stop with the “oh the power” nonsense

    Alex should get 4 or 5 here to put herself in a good place for the golden boot. It could be 12 to 0 at this rate.

    This is not the USA fault. this is embarrassing for the tournament organizers. Thailand has no business being there.
