watching Netherlands/Norway makes me smile because if you’ve watched women’s football forever like a lot of us have you can see the progress being made. it wasn’t always close, competitive, back and forth stuff - we continue to see the gap closing between the usual big teams. you can see the development being made in the women’s game, especially with the smaller nations. it’s nice to see the technical skill the game didn’t always have, pace, watching tactics come into play, etc. i think it’s going to be a fantastic tournament.
