What is Bini is doing. Yes the french team have made enormous progress but taking off Soubeyrand against the USA. I couldn't believe it. But his biggest error was not bringing the best goal keeper in the world to Germany. Sarah Bouhaddi is the most dynamic goal keeper in woman's football and would certainly have stopped 2 of the USA goals. The performance of the French keepers was disastrous. This error possibly cost France the world cup. As with most of the French team Bouhaddi is champion of europe with Lyon who beat the Germans last month.

“It was essential to win this match, because we’d played extremely well in our four previous matches before losing to an excellent Japanese side. That was a setback, but our reaction today was top class; we showed what we were truly capable of,” Thomas Dennerby, Sweden coach.
