The chance to get a full month's footie on the box. Full marks to the BBC for their excellent coverage.
The women's game has improved no end at the international level and I, for one, shall make the most of the tournament.

France looked so, so fluent in their opener. Difficult to beat?

England need to improve dramatically on that performance to be a threat in this World Cup.

Good to see that England's game against the old enemy Argentina is live on BBC1 this evening.

Congrats to England on reaching the semi-finals. Wonder what level the England's women's team could be competitive in the men's game, if you ignored the physicality of the men's game.

Yeh just ignore the bits that make them different, no running, no jumping, no jostling, no power in their shooting. So basically at what level is their passing ability?

We will be playing at the arena again next season - fact.

Quakerz - if you actually attended games and spoke to people you might actually find our facts, rather than spreading s*** on this board.

I thought about this a few years ago and thought that Darlo would probably win. More strength etc but now I’m not so sure.

The England’s women team is very good, good passing and movement, good manager, and two or three very talented players. Women’s football has dramatically improved over the last few years so I reckon if “ The Lionesses “ played last seasons Darlo on a good pitch they could very well win - score 2/1

Not quite the same as taking part in the final, is it?
