Allez les bleuettes !
We can win that semi-final if we defend properly and Le Sommer can create another quality moment of class

pfffffffff stupid/ pathetic defending  >:(
To loose this way is simply rubbish, they had a chance to reach a world cup final and throw that away with U7 defending is unbelievable...

Pretty stupid to throw away 92 minutes of hard work like that.

Absolutely...a great finish by the N Korean player but she would not have had the chance if any defender had moved with her and headed it away or challenged her .

It was a good campaign for our girls, I have to say our manager has some some balls to send on a subtitute for the captain at the back who had no played a second so far. She did well.

Congratulations to France and Germany for a great game in the 3rd-place playoff.  To come back from 3-0 down to 5-3 at the end was a mark of France's determination and skill and I really liked the play of Delie (she was there two years ago as well), Coton Pelagie and Le Sommer and several others.  On the German side Baunach, Nicole Bernacki, Kim Kulig and tonight's hat-trick hero Pollmann stood out.  I really liked the feisty keeper Vetterlein who made a fantastic reaction save in the Japan match and immediately started bawling out the defenders for not doing their jobs properly.  Let's hope USA v North Korea in the Final will be half as entertaining.

 . . well, it was entertaining, a fast clean game between well matched sides and two wonderful USA goals, a late goal after prolonged pressure by N.Korea as the USA players tired, both games really worthy of the top four teams in the World Cup.

Definitely. Alisa Vetterlein is one of the best youth goalkeepers at the moment. Hope she gets a chance in Frankfurt's senior squad. At the moment she's on the u23 team, I think.
