You’ve missed my point, though , frankly, I don’t know if it was intentional. Teams are labeled as being from these countries and fans root for their home county’s teams. Fans cling to this cloak of nationalism but in truth they’re millionaire multinationals to a great degree.
Back to the point of the thread - I was pleased as a sports fan (in general) to see and enjoy a soccer game . This is a sport which I rarely follow. Good job and accolades go to the broadcasters, players, teams mercy sakes, even the officiating. Though my expectations are low for similar experience s with watching men’s competition.
I just read on USA Today that they consider this the greatest game in the history of women’s soccer. A bit of hyperbole considering the competition in which Mia Hamm participated around 1990.
