Both teams probably will be happy with a draw so it will be interesting what sort of game happens.

Scraped through! That last couple minutes when both teams were pretending to play was pretty horrific though :?

Matildas rested some players on the bench to start with and that decision nearly cost them a position in the final.

The Matildas made some poor mistakes at times which put them under more pressure than they needed to be under.

Thailand played really well defensively and broke dangerously when they got opportunities.

Final is on Friday so it will hard to recover in time for that game after playing 120 minutes last night.

Hopefully the girls will play better against Japan in the final.

Yes I agree she had a shocker but sort of made up for it with the penalty saves - IMO she shouldn't be the keeper in the final.

It was better than the semi but they would need to be much better at the WC next year to far in that tournament.
