Shamefully, there were scarcely any French fans at the semi-final at the World Cup – this was in spite of the fact that the match was played very close to the French border. A jump onto the So Foot’s Équipe de France forum provides a handy lesson in what ordinary French fans think about the women’s squad. For example, I just learned how to say “Hey, the girls aren’t horrible” and “Fuck, they don’t know how to mark for shit” and – my favorite – “It’s not sexist for me to say that a game full of tits and ass sucks.” Actually, that’s all from the same con. There are fans of foot feminin. I’ve been in the stands with them in Montpellier, where you can watch women’s matches for free just about a mile in from the Mediterranean.
The French women’s team is very, very good.
These are more complete highlights, with very enthusiastic commentary:
