Women’s World Football Show, Episode 49 features a soundbite from Lucy Bronze; and Kehinde from Girls Talk Footy website.
And then there were four. Women’s World Football Show takes a look back at the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup quarterfinals and give a watchful eye forward to the semifinals.
USA vs. China
There’s something weird going on in America. Seems like everyone is falling in love with the USWNT again. We find out why and what did they do to disorient China? Could it all be about Amy Rodriguez and Kelley O’Hara? We figure it out.
Japan vs. Australia
The defending World Cup Champions show why they continue to dismantle international teams. Mana Iwabuchi scored the winning goal in dramatic fashion after slowly, methodically and patiently carving up The Matildas. Do they have enough to clinch Back-to-Back World Cup trophies? That’s the question everyone is asking.
Germany vs. France
A quarterfinal worthy of a Final match, these familiar foes competed in what will go down as one of the all-time greatest Women’s World Cup matches of all time. We discuss the German shoot-out victory and France’s failure to walk down the aisle.
England vs. Canada
The tale of two countries. In this emotional quarterfinal, it was Canada’s nemesis coming out as the victor once again. Jodie Taylor and Lucy Bronze took it to the host team, capitalizing on Canada’s mistakes and bringing The Lionesses to advance to the World Cup semifinals for the first time in their history. We also hear Bronze talk about her game-winning goal against Norway (courtesy of FOX sports).
Three former champions and one Cinderella team are left in this exciting tournament. Join us as we look forward to the semifinal matches of USA vs. Germany and England vs. Japan.
Our friend Kehinde from Girls Talk Footy is back to give us a review of the African teams at this year’s Women’s World Cup. What did she see from Nigeria, Ivory Coast and Cameroon? And how will their results affect women’s soccer in those regions. Don’t miss this interesting and entertaining recap.
