I just wanted to congratulate the Mexican Team for playing a good game. They played hard and with alot of attitude. I believe that Mexico as a whole is really coming onto its own. The players seem to have a different attitude. They are all performing with an edge on the world stage.

I love watching African teams. They sure can run and hustle and these ladies pressured Mexico like NO ONE I've seen in a while. The passing that Nigeria would do was INCREDIBLE! Fast and precise (most of the time). They played better than most men teams. Yes, I'm looking at you U.S. Men. US Women have a difficult game ahead but I hope to see them playing Nigeria next. Congrats Nigeria for a great display. And good job to Mexico for playing tough and not taking dives and wasting time like the Mexico Men's team does.
