Brenda came up from Calgary to join Nathania, Jeanie, and myself to watch the Japan v. England Women’s World Cup semi-final match at Commonwealth Stadium. Japan played well in the first and England picked up the intensity in the second. After respective penalties in the first half, with 1-1 each going into extra-time, England were beyond unfortunate to score an own-goal during injury time. Sad way to go out. However, a US-Japan rematch in the final should be a good game.
