Women’s World Cup Day in Review: Worries for Canada? Dutch impressive in win on Day 1

ProSoccerTalk

To award a penalty or not award a penalty? That is the question asked of soccer matches pretty much since the sport was invented.

In the opener of the 2015 World Cup, host Canada – who had looked flustered and frustrated most of the afternoon – was glad that Ukrainian referee Kateryna Monzul answered “yes” in stoppage time, saving Canada a slightly embarrassing draw to open matters.

On replay, you can’t blame Monzul for her decision, Zhao Rong had her arm up and contact with substitute Adriana Leon was extended. But China, who conceded just four shots on goal in the contest (including the penalty), likely deserved a point. Deserve, however, in a short tournament, often doesn’t have as much to do with it as we might believe.

In other news 2day, ex FIFA boss Sepp Blatter has revealed he is to star in the lead role of Vito Corleone, the head of the most powerful Mafia family in New York City, in the upcoming Martin Scorsese remake of the original Godfather trilogy.

The role, previously acted by Hollywood legend Marlon Brando, sees Vito (Blatter) oversee a business founded on gambling, bootlegging, bribery and union corruption.

Sources close to Mr Blatter say there are many similarities between his previous role at FIFA and the part of the infamous mafia boss; a role which requires no acting ability on Mr Blatter’s part whatsoever.
