Ask yourself why, when they play just as well as the men, if not better (which is what I saw today)
why? I've never even watched a whole match to even answer that. the mens football is more popular, easier to find on TV, man, they even got they're own video game (FIFA), it's promoted a lot more than women's football. the football magazines my brother used to get at a kid (match of the day of something) had only male footballers, all we're really exposed to is men's football.

Yeah, no, it wasn't. It was a decent game, but let's not get carried away.
They scored a goal in under 3 minutes. I don't need to know **** about football to know that that's good.

A completely subjective point from someone who admits they don't know anything about football...

A goal scored in under 3 minutes is objectively good play.

But why. They are genuinely good. I know absolutely **** all about football, but the way the women's team played today was genuinely so much better and more energetic than the men's team EVER did last year.
Paradoxical statement.

True. And a big shame. Hopefully one day it will be equal

You would be the same if you were not regarded as equal. Especially after such massive achievements.

Arguably, it's not that massive for them. So far they've only matched their performance at the last world cup, and performed as expected for a team ranked in the top 2 or 3 in the world.

Doubt it. I'm all for equality, but there's some things in nature, which don't allow for it. In terms of strength and physicality, majority of men are biologically superior to women. This is conveyed pretty well on a football field, in terms of performance. There's a reason why football has a category for males and a separate one for women. If they were to merge into one category, the women would be grossly disadvantaged.

I think that the Womens World Cup has been very good this year and the standard has been high. I don't think aimlessly comparing male and female football gets anyone anywhere if I'm being honest.

I watch far more mens football (several times per week) but can fully appreciate women's football and have thoroughly enjoyed the World Cup, even if Scotland were knocked out in the group stages.

At the end of the day, people who know more than 'absolutely ****all' about football care more about how England perform at the highest stage, because they value high-quality football.
Men's football is clearly better than women's football and England men are better than England women.
So even if England men perform worse than England women, fans care more about England men since they are representing England at a higher standard of football.

Yes, facts are facts and that is fine. What upsets me is the disregard for women's football. I don't know a single person who has been watching it. This is more due to the fact that men's football is promoted more than women's than a difference in quality/performance. And that is brutally unfair.

I think in a couple years from now as the female game develops, it will in turn gain popularity
