The pundits were waxing lyrical about how great the USA were but Thailand were way out of their depth and had a midget in goals.

I actually don't mind women's football but the standard of goalkeeping all round is absolutely shocking.

If they're Scottish they deserve it. Got to the finals and scored a goal. When did the men's team last do that?

What are the alternatives the bbc could consider changing to? Are they intent on advert free tv.?

This latest story will hopefully end up with them totally backtracking. Its boiled a lot of piss. I mean to chatge over 75s is harsh..

Next it be the government stepping in with the NOW cards and charging pensioners...you can see it coming...

They should charge pensioners more - they are the ones sat in all day watching the crap!

Plus they have the biggest wealth gap between them and the rest of us ever. Think this is the only old generation that is richer than the ones below it in history.

Thought Phil Neville was getting a bit carried away last night.

Hugging fair enough but he was kissing some of them after the game.

God knows what he'll be doing if they actually win the thing! :-D

Urban designer people like you make me laugh you do realise you will be a pensioner yourself before you even realise it, good luck on that one, it takes a good thirty to forty years to build up a pension for those who actually pay attention to saving for one it is well earned by the time you do get it, that is if you make it that far and have the health to enjoy. Such comments beggar belief.

Should be means tested - plenty of rich pensioners and it is a fact that it is the biggest wealth gap between an older and younger generation ever. There will be no such thing as a state pension in 20 years - the NI we pay if for current pensioners.

Pension age is already rising -

Here is another fact - working between 60-65 knocks 5 years of you life. Work past 70 and you will likely die on the job having no joy on day time TV!

My belief is that you should claim a state pension if you are eligible to do so as you have paid into it all your working life.

However- if you are stinking rich and do not need it then my conscience would tell me not to claim it or take it and give it to local charities.

Lots have personal pensions anyway.

Life is precious, I would be totally astounded if I ever reached that age but I would like to think that if I did I wouldn't be called a scrounger for receiving a free television licence.

Definitely should be means tested as should the winter fuel allowance. What’s the point in giving rich pensioners more money? I remember Peter Stringfellow trying to give his winter fuel allowance back and the government wouldn’t take it!

With regards trying to live off a state pension, we all know the day will come where we retire and our income will dramatically reduce, would it not be a wise and responsible decision to make provision for this? If you’re going to spunk all your money throughout your working life don’t complain when you’re skint on retirement.

These are the people who are least likely to complain Nobby, as they’ve never really had anything. Plenty of people live beyond their more than ample means throughout their life then blame the state when they’re skint on retirement.

Totally understand that munchy and these people have my upmost sympathy, whether it be down to illness or forward planning going tits up. Many people make no provisions at all though and expect the state to bail them out on retirement.

In individual cases , people have worked hard and saved for a long and happy retirement.
There are people out there, though, that due to various circumstances, health, caring etc have not had the same earning power.
The raising of the state pension age ensures that some people will have virtually no retirement at all in the generation of people who are currently middle aged or lower.
As a society, we should be able to do better than that.

Meanwhile, come on England.

Better to have the memories of your adventures to keep you warm in old age than money in the bank but too infirm to do anything with it.

There's a balance to be had obviously - you want to be comfy - but better to see the world or whatever when you have the energy and stamina.

It wa in the 88th minute and it was a clear cut penalty.
From the start of the incident, to the retaken penalty took about 7 minutes and then no time was added on at all.
Both teams needed a win and a draw puts them both out (barring a miraculous set of results).
I wanted Scotland to win, but that was incredibly harsh on the Argies that it took them 7 minutes to take a clear cut pen and then they weren’t given a chance to go for a winner.
The ref explained at great length the new pen rules and then recalled the game after a good time had elapsed after the original ‘save’.
Seemed a bit farcical.
Scotland let themselves down a bit with some very cynical play when they were winning, the kind of thing that the Argies (in the men’s game) would have been labelled cheating gets for, in the day.

The women’s game has and continues to come on in leaps and bounds, its time to stop knocking it, it’s starting to sound a bit sexist from some people have seen some real skill and good games a lot of countries have a long way to go but I’m sure they will improve. The top countries play some impressive stuff I’ve seen worse in the men’s World Cup just enjoy and stop trying to undermine.

To be fair the retake decision was much more clear-cut than the one in the France-Nigeria game the other night.

Scottish keeper was clearly well in front of her line before the kick was taken.

I don't see what's wrong with women's football. It's about time it was given a higher profile.
I see it as a bit of an embarrassment , up until recently, that it has been so neglected financially. It's obvious that the England team has come on leaps and bounds since being a more professional set up.
There must be lots of youngsters that will be inspired as a result.
Has to be a good thing.
The standard seems decent to me. Come on England.

Didn’t mean to knock it or sound sexist but I’ve just got very little interest in it. I’ve tried watching it but found it pretty boring tbh and my interest soon diminished, a bit like watching rugby union as a league fan.

For me it should be marketed totally separate from the men’s game and kept apart, they seem intent on comparing the two and intertwining them in some sort of misguided attempt at equality.

I watch it but almost view it as a different sport to the men's game.

I do think BBC coverage of women's football in general, club football as well as internationals, is massively disproportionate to the level of interest in it.
