The womens team had a bad tournament,it happens.I just like every other fan am disappointed. The performance was lackluster, uninspired, and the lack
of team synergy was glaring back at every hopeful fan like a ghostly spectre .
I knew Sweden was going to win the the shootout when I saw what each team was doing with there preparation time.
Sweden rallied around the goalkeeper trying to motivate her and being very supportive.the team as a collective was pumped.
Pan over to the us...
Team standing around drinking water not talking much..and hope solo, living up to half of her name, standing there solo obviously filled with anxiety
This is a player I am a fan of, I stood up for her when the fans were shouting "Zika!"
And she tried to play some stall tactic mind games on her last save attempt... It was poor sportsmanship and disappointing to me , as a former
competitive goalkeeper to witness that..
Good for the Swedish play having a positive attitude and finishing..
That's my rant on that...
Check out indoor soccer (no out of bounds, walls around, and smaller field 5v5)
Lots goals exciting stuff, was my favorite to play as a keeper..lots of touches...
