That was as BAD a half as I have ever seen a team play at this level and still come out with the result.
1. Ellis please stop with the praising for Rapinoe. Yes she has finished very well but her play has been just fair. Two goals today you say?
a. The first was a free kick which was poorly taken. But France decided to whiff on the ball and it goes directly in.
b. The second goal was a sitter. I finish that.
2. Dunn got it done. The bad - she was beat all day. The good - she has such quick reaction and is so fit that she can recover time after time.
3. If we pass like that against England they will punish us. Way to slow to see the pass. Not enough pace on our passes. Not good.
4. We better see some changes in players and/or tactics this next match. We only have 3 days rest once again. You are insane if you sit Horan again. If you are so convinced that you have to have Ertz, Lavelle, and Mewis starting then fine. Switch to a 5-4-1 like you did halfway into the second half. Move Ertz to CB. Dunn wide where she belongs anyway. Take out Heath or Rapinoe and start Horan.
Dunn got put down like a fat kid on a see saw over and over again. I was salty about it from last game so I noticed it way more this game, but they could practically live in that corner in the first half cause she just continuously turns the ball over.
Ertz saved her ass at least three or four times that I saw.
Those last 10 min were the best they played all day, once they made some subs. Hopefully they learn from that.
