Strong women!! Yay!!
For those who didn't see it , Rapinoe was excellent in the match against a very, very good France team and her two goals were well-struck beauties. The match was probably the best of the tournament so far between probably the two best teams in the competition and a credit to women's soccer (or football, as it's kniwn in that other strange and distant country, the Rest of the World!).
That was a quarter-final; their semi final on Tuesday is against an improving England team which hadnt conceded a goal in its previous 4 or 5 matches. So it's a tough fixture (as a semi-final should be, of course) but USA should win it.
I love the way AOC, Rapinoe, the pussy-hat demonstrators and other women succeed in saying a cheerful, hate-free, attention-grabbing "fuck you!" to the sexist, boorish, resentful male dinosaurs of the RW resenterati.
