Controversy in the England v Cameroon match as Cameroon wrongly but understandably dispute England's second goal for offside : it wasn't. Cameroon players huddle and refuse to play for 4 minutes. England moving the ball around quite well but too many times the ball forward from midfield is being received by our forwards with their backs to the goal, when the move breaks down.
Cameroon getting a bit emotional: hope they behave ok second half. So, 2-0 England at the moment.

OMG. England keeper clears badly -Cameroon score with quick counter attack but goal INCORRECTLY disallowed for offside. The sh+t might hit the fan.

Fairly comfortable win against a gritty Cameroon team. Neville very disappointed with Cameron's behaviour : bad for image of women's football. Overall I've seen worse games than this in the EPL in terms of entertainment and quite enjoyed it.

Library please.
I thought the only thing worse than the ref’s performance was Cameroon’s although the use of VAR was also to blame.

On the ref, she completely failed to deal with the indiscipline of Cameroon - I don’t think a single card was issued for that despite players screaming in her face.

On the VAR, it helped get some decisions right but there was the elbow, the spitting (although I’m not convinced it was intentional), the late challenge right at the end, the England penalty not awarded. I'd also add in the offside decision to disallow the Cameroon goal which, IMO, is exactly the type of VAR decision that will ruin matches.

A very poor advert for the game.

I briefly saw the kerfuffle on the news.

Was the chalked off Cameroon goal offside or not ?
