Don't get me wrong, I'm not white knighting and I agree that it's the minority with the sexist comments. I just think that the media on facebook- sbs/foxsports intentionally bait for these kind of comments just to get more interaction on their posts. It's more of a opinion on the way media companies use social media nowadays to get clicks and interactions no matter what garbage you put out- make bold statements, ask obvious questions, intentional spelling mistakes, intentional wrong statistics of things that most would know and when it comes to women's football, compare Kerr to Messi and watch the people in the comments section duke it out.
Totally 100% agree.

Divide and conquer seems to be the way to get clicks these days. Write something that will make half your readership feel they are being attacked and need to defend their position while compelling the other half to lead the attack. Despite both camps having the same starting opinion.

I Feel 95% of us all want and believe in the same common good despite what the media may tell us.

Great night at Coopers. The Matildas ran the game and should have won by at least three.
Wasn't unlike AU's last game against Brisbane. Chile stacked the back and rarely threatened but blunted the Matildas. Exciting, skilful game though.
Chile supporters were wonderful. Decent crowd too!

Great to hear. It certainly looked good on TV.

Agree on all points. Chile were stuck in their own half and launched the odd counter attack but really it was all Aus. Found it tough to break through though and Kerr was isolated. Ellie Carpenter absolutely bossed the right flank.

Great win and much to like about individual performances. We were clearly the better team, but so we should be given respective world rankings. A good night and quite entertaining. (Although I felt a bit like a neutral at times. There wasn't the same passion as I have for Adelaide United, and it just felt like a meaningless friendly.)

We were very strong at the ball. That's a good thing when you're up against a tough strong opponent. but I thought that against the smaller bodied Chileans we were a bit of a bully on a few occasions (unnecessary body contact after the ball was gone, legs left in late in a tackle, hip and shoulder when not in a position to play the ball).

The skill level was better than I feared it would be, but not as good as I hoped it might be. You'd see a great touch, but then it would be let down by a really poor misplaced simple pass.

Anyway, it was good to have international football at Hindmarsh and I would definitely go again to support the Matildas.

Your assessment is fair.

The womens game is still developing, Its more a situation of fantastic athletes who play football rather than fantastic footballers.

I would actually put Kerr in the fantastic athlete category but average footballer.

While caitlin ford is someone who doesnt get the plaudits but is a fantastic footballer and natural athlete.

Hopefully we can see more caitlin fords and lisa devannas.

The matildas are one of 2 national teams ill make time to watch. Ive enjoyed watching their progression over the years!
