Here come the girls

The technique of the players in women’s soccer has come on in leaps and bounds in recent years, culminating in some great games this year.

I watched England v USA last month in the Under 20s World Cup quarter final and both teams played fantastic soccer. The USA won this one but it was closer than the 3-0 scoreline suggested.

The techniques used in the game were exceptional – I think there’s a lot more to come from some of these young ladies.

Here’s a clip of the USA’s Carli Lloyd voted the best player of 2008 by US Soccer.

In the 2008 Summer Olympics women’s football gold medal game against Brazil, Lloyd scored the winning goal in the first period of extra time. She’s had a good season.
