Womens Euro #14

France 1 – 1 Switzerland

I watched this game two days late as a way of getting around the shockingly bad ‘live stream’ from All4. I already knew the final score, I already knew that England will face France on Sunday. I hadn’t caught any of France’s games so far in the tournament, and since they are favourites to win I was interested to see them play. They are amazing and this game had me on the edge of my seat even though I knew the final outcome. What excitement! I must admit that I was quite happy when Renard got a yellow card ten or so minutes in to the game and so will not play on Sunday. Minutes later a red card left France with 10 players on the pitch and they proved that even outnumbered they are a massive force to be reckoned with.

The opening game, I was so excited! But, Channel 4 decided to only show it online, using a server that was possibly last used in 1997, so the live stream constantly jumped and stuck and looped. With no commentary at all.

Can you imagine this happening if it was a men’s championship?

I was so angry. Gav desperately searched the internet to see if we could watch it anywhere else (we couldn’t). The opening game was ruined. Thank you very much Channel 4.
