Women’s World Cup semi final review: Germany 3-0 Norway

Just as England are perennial quarter finalists, so Germany are, depressingly, perennial finalists. Their women have just eased past Norway to reach the final of the 2007 Women’s World Cup. Norway started well and should have been level at half-time, but they couldn’t take their chances. Three-nil is a slightly unfair scoreline, but no one could argue that Germany don’t deserve to be in the final, thanks to an own goal by Trine Rooning on 43 minutes, and second-half strikes by Kerstin Steegemann and Martina Mueller.
The Germans will face either USA or Brazil (they play tomorrow) in Sunday’s final.

    If the English FA would treat the women’s league like the German DFB does, England could really compete.
    Team England has had to compete after the second-best team in their league was wiped-out by Charlton.
    All premiership and championship teams should be required to have a women’s team, with some provisions to protect their funding.
    These teams provide some support for smaller stadia, btw.
    I wish the US faced this level of opposition more often. The friendlies leading up to this cup seemed too easy, with just a couple of exceptions.
