A dash up to Newcastle to see family after the Canoeing then it’s time for the next event for Allan and Mr. S, the Women’s football final. A cracking game between U-S-A and Ni-pon ended up USA getting a deserved win 2-1 with USA’s 2nd goal from 25 yards scored by Carli Lloyd a screamer.
Over 80,000 were at Wembley and the only boos of the night were for Sebb Blatter (see here for why), not as fast as the blokes gam, but skill levels were excellent from both sides. The crowd were enthusiastic and very good natured, although there did seem to be confusion from lots of people of only having a 15 minute half time – masses seem to come back after 15 minutes of the 2nd half.
So, could this be the 2 Geordies last visit to Wem-ber-ley this year? Answers on a postcard to the usual address.
