    • Another giant is knocked out! Germany only manages a draw against South Korea while Morocco pulls off a 1-0 upset against Colombia to move on.

      Germany will not appear in the knockout round for the first time.

      #2 #7, and #8 in the FIFA rankings did not advance out of the group stage.

        With Germany out, Norway and Japan playing each other, and the USWNT teetering (and then having to play the winner of Norway v Japan), the possibility of a first time winner is pretty high.

              • I mean both those would be cool, but highly highly highly unlikely. What do they have, 3 goals between the two of em in group play? And that's a fair number given what they've shown offensively.

                I think this tournament is shaping up to give teams like France, England, Spain a much better shot. Maybe you could throw a Nigeria in there but thats a pretty big stretch as well.

                South Africa is the low-rated team who has actually looked like they could get a breakthrough or two when they needed it.

                • Celtic starts defense of their title today at home against Ross County. And it's on CBS Sports Network.

                  • Japan and Spain took care of business. 3-1 and 5-1 against Norway and Switzerland. Can’t say it’s all too surprising, Group A did not look very strong while Japan has looked the best and Spain has been a machine besides their game against Japan.

                    • I'd be surprised if US advances. Saying the right things to the press doesn't magically make you play better.

                      • The US has been the better side so far, but need to put one past a very good Swedish keeper

                        • I was ****ed when they put Rapinoe in, and even more annoyed they allowed her a PK since her set pieces were awful all game. Her ball striking was just off. Bad decision making there.

                          • Teed up, ready for a walk-off twice and they didn’t even make Musovic get a hand on it.

                            Couldn’t get any closer on the game winner. VAR needed more zoom.

                              Totally agree. You bring in Rapinoe for her experience, but take Morgan off? Made no sense.
                              If you don't change the world today, how can it be any better tomorrow?

                              • I'd say they can learn from the 2004 Men's basketball team, but those guys still managed a Bronze, not cratering in the round of 16.
