We know female footballers don’t get the money, physician organizational support or fame that their male counterparts do, pills but now you can add World Cup hotel rooms that aren’t infested with swarms of insects to the list, as well.
England midfielder Jill Scott has been keeping a video diary for FA TV during the tournament and in her latest installment, she shares the less than four-star living conditions in their German hotel. After returning from their 2-0 win over Japan, they apparently discovered a disturbingly large swarm of bugs that had overtaken teammate Fara Williams’ room. The footballers naturally wanted to combat this infestation, but when they went to the front desk for help in their extermination efforts, they were given a canister of Febreze. The air freshener.
Undeterred by this, the ladies tried to kill the bugs with it anyway. But, as expected, that didn’t work and Fara Williams still had a room full of flies that at least now smelled like lavender vanilla.
Tournament hosts Mexico reached the U-17 World Cup final in pretty much the most dramatic way possible without playing in a hurricane or while someone tried to assassinate the president in the stadium.
Trailing a very talented German team 2-1 late in the second half, ed Mexico equalized with an improbable goal scored directly off a Jorge Espericueta corner kick in the 75th minute. Julio Gomez clashed heads with a German defender on the play as the ball whizzed by to go off the far post and in the goal untouched, viagra sale leaving him bleeding and in need of patching up on the pitch.
Then, to take the already dramatic situation to a level that would even make Hollywood vomit over the sheer perfection of it all, Gomez returned to the pitch with a massive bandage around his head. And on another corner in the 89th minute, Gomez executed an excellent over(bandaged)head kick to score the winner and his second goal of the game…
The crowd went nuts, the commentator convulsed with delight and birds flying overhead sang opera before exploding like hand grenades.
Mexico will now play Uruguay in the final as they look to win their second U-17 World Cup in six years (the tournament is held every two years). The final is almost certain to be boring compared to this.

I may have my preferences for the outcome of each of these matches but I think one will be close and the other will be an ass-whipping. And before you assume it, I don’t think that it will be the Taurine Army doing the ass-whipping (they can’t play Toronto every week).
Sunday’s match between Salt Lake and New England included more than its share of unfortunate refereeing that influenced the game right from the beginning. In just the third minute, ampoule Salt Lake defender Nat Borchers tried to catch Benny Feilhaber as he made a break off a booming goal kick and when he did reach him inside the box, his attempt to clear went off Feilhaber’s face and out over the endline.
Though Borchers did this without making contact, the referee still sent him off and gave New England a penalty kick anyway. The game eventually ended in a 3-3 draw and prompted Salt Lake manager Jason Kreis to do this creepy thing where he pointed to his eye.

Life as a professional footballer: Emmanuel enjoys it.
