Ghana 2 Switzerland 0
« Reply #9 on: July 22, 2010, 01:25:51 PM »
Ghana did their part in the hopes of reaching the knockout rounds of the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in Germany, beating Switzerland 2-0 in Bochum. However, Group D winners the USA bested Korea Republic in the other match in the section, sending both the pointless and goalless Swiss home along with the determined and stylish west Africans.

Ghana began the game in lively fashion with Florence Dadson getting hold of the ball in the first minute of play. She fired a chipped shot from near midfield that had the Swiss goalkeeper scrambling, but ended up sailing harmlessly over the bar.

The Swiss hauled themselves back into the game with Ana Crnogorcevic and Samira Susuri both going close, only to be denied by keeper Patricia Mantey and wayward finishing respectively. The Europeans looked the faster of the two teams as the first half wore on, but the Ghanaians were putting together some stylish passes and bossing midfield.

On 31 minutes, the Africans put their possession to work. Elizabeth Cudjoe’s free-kick from the left was volleyed home extravagantly by outstanding playmaker and captain Elizabeth Addo. Just 11 minutes later, they made it 2-0. Edem Atovor’s long pass picked out Cudjoe who slotted easily past Pascale Kueffer.

Ghana continued to dictate the patterns in the second period, but were unable to add to their lead. The Swiss kept the Ghanaian rearguard busy with some snappy countre-attacking, but in the end the game finished 2-0 for Ghana, who go out of the competition with four points from their three Group D games. The Swiss will be less buoyed by their time in Germany, picking up zero points from their clashes.

comment: This match between two sides who were not going further in the tournament was very far from the boring uninterested match that could have been expected.  All the players were fully committed, just to win this one match.

Switzerland started the match with a 9-0 goal difference and without their star, Ramona Bachmann, who took a back injury in the previous match that might need surgery.  They have never scored in an international tournament, but against Ghana it looked as if a goal might be possible, and the players responded wholeheartedly to make it an exciting match, a great advert for women's football.

With both sides determined not to hold back, injuries were inevitable, but the referee decided her job was to let the game flow.  The closing stages of the match were marked with the officials' behaviour after a possibly serious injury to Chantal Fimian, the Swiss defender.  With the referee yelling at the medical team to get her off the pitch, Switzerland's doctor was forced to spend time yelling back that she was not going anywhere until they had put a neck brace on her.   The Swiss trainer was sent to the stands after his complaints to the referee about the way the physical play had developed, which looked reasonable when you think he is the one who has to answer to the parents when their daughters come home injured.

In the end Switzerland will have to wait for another chance of a goal, but this time they came very close and earned admiration for their determination to make this technically meaningless match into a real and memorable football match.

Referee in the match Germany - France was Alexandra Ihringova (England), she will also be the referee in the
quarter final between Mexico and South Korea.

Correction: Alexandra Ihringova was the referee in the quarter final between USA and Nigeria, but I am pretty
sure that this morining very early on the FIFA website she was on the other quarter final!

The assistent referee, who didnot see the Lampard type goal either was or Helen Karo whether Anna Nystrom
both from Sweden

USA out to Nigeria
« Reply #12 on: July 25, 2010, 10:13:46 PM »
USA went out in the quarter finals today after losing on penalties to Nigeria after a 1-1 score after 90 and 120 minutes.  USA keeper Henninger persisted in running off her line despite being warned by the referee Alexandra Ihringova, and two of her 'saves' had to be retaken.  This must be down to faulty preparation and training.  USA's final penalty was put over the bar by Sydney Le Roux and and Nigeria went through to the semi finals.
