Three cheers for Argentina. Well played ladies, bever gave up.On another point.Does @skirt land simply get comments removed because of the username? Seemed a perfectly reasonable post to me. Obviously some celtic snowflakes at the bbc.Bias at it's best.
Everyone talking about the var penalty in sco Vs arg but with the tables now finalised, we see that the ref not playing the 9 extra minutes has cost both Scotland and Argentina a place in the next round. Where do FIFA find these refs!! Brings the game into disrepute. Shame on FIFA.

I wish the highlights had the time visible on the screen. Adds to the drama if you know what stage of the game you're watching.
Reminiscent of Ally’s Army. Fair enough giving Kerr the top role, but a strong experienced No2 is definitely required and would not allow the comeback to happen. SFA has cost the ladies football a lot of finance and and undeserved humiliation. Well done to the ladies, qualifying and one huge foot in the next round, despite your efforts you have been let down by others.
A win-win for the English. The Argies and the Jocks both going hame tae think again. Thanks for making the numbers up. x
I agree with other commentators, Kerr made strategic errors by not putting subs on sooner - the ladies were dead on their feet and Argentina were running at them - and secondly not telling the team to defend the three goal lead all behind the ball and just keep possession to see the game out as soon as Argentina made the substitutions.
Taking the long view: If this result inspires future Scotland teams to defend even a one-goal lead like tigresses then yes, it will have been a painful lesson, but a lesson well worth the learning . . .
@1164Agreed that many comments are not actually about the match itself but that's not the point, I was more thinking about the way that there were no HYS's (especially after USA v Thailand) which seems to have made everybody want to say something now. I was just acknowledging the skill and foresight with which this was done. I sincerely doubt it was the 'sport' departments idea tbh
got my comment removed only said corruption and cheating by VAR against Japan .must be true then
Simply not good enough.. 3 goals to the good with 20 minutes or so left on the clock the Scots produced a lamentable display reminiscent of school-girl football at it's worst. No plan, no nous, no clue and inevitably no tournament. Kerr was so poor last night too..
I don't buy the SHUT UP SHOP mentality when Scotland were 3 up that many are recommending.......They did right to stay as they were and be in an attack mode.....Attack is the best form of defence.Ok it didn't work out but to go all defensive is always asking for trouble IMO
I remain unconvinced it was a penalty in the first place. The defender seemed to me to take the ball.
We're having some problems displaying the comments at the moment. Sorry. We're doing our best to fix it.
