The more talented team and the team that played best won. The English women were a disgrace in the second half with there faking injuries to waste time every time they went down hoping to to to penalty kick because of having the better keeper. They were saying on the game how England would do in penalties because of injuries in the game. The only injured player they had was Smith the others were such fakes.

It was a difficult, topsy-turvy match, but right now I’m just so happy. I did feel very bad about my missed penalty, but that’s all forgotten now.
