    The game is 12 minutes old. We haven't scored, but you really gotta wonder what the purpose in scheduling this game was.

    It's apparent that Ukraine isn't prepared to challenge in this game. The U.S. certainly doesn't need to be scheduling patsies at this point.

    Welsh in the 31st. 1-0.

    About time. This game is just not that compelling.

    Whatexactly is the purpose of playing the soccer equivalent of the Washington Generals?

    I miss the Eurosport commentators. I liked how they commented on the game and the players' performances, good and bad ...

    The Ukraine chick that just got subbed on has a mullet.

    Thanks for the score updates. Sounds like compelling stuff. Oh well, at least Milbrett got her 100th goal, and there's going to actually be footage, unlike Lilly's.

    It's like watching a college team play some HS team.

    They're just not on the same level.

    I watched the NJ Wildcats play the Washington Freedom Reserve last night. A 1-1 tie and much faster-paced and harder-fought game. Better players today. Better soccer last night.

    Folks were complaining 3 months ago about no WNT games scheduled for this season. Whatever the US must have been willing to pay was only able to get the Ukraine with enough for airfare and one night's stay in Portland.

    Sarcasm, Andy.

    Even if it seems like another hum-drum thrashing, did any players stand out?

    How dull.

    Honestly what is the point of playing these teams?

    Lilly is still 10 different kinds of awsome. Most exciting parts of the match were when she was on the ball.

    Nice for Millie and all but, lets hope she settles into a reserve roll if she stays on.

    It keeps the players sharp and it's fun. Do they need more reasons?

    Naw, its dull to watch. And it doesn't do anything for this team to play these low level sides. it's a scrimage at best. They need to be challenged.
