Deja Vu

German Ladies lose to Denmark in yesterday's semi final, which was rescheduled match after heavy rain postponed the game from Saturday.

I recall a similar upset when the men's teams met in the final in 1992 and Denmark did for us then too- also with a 2 - 1 victory.

It's a real shame for me as the Germans were bidding to win the title for the seventh consecutive time but it wasn't to be.  Just think though, this defeat was their first since 1993, almost the same time as the men lost to Denmark.

Happier times for the English burds who did for France 1 - 0 and now go into the semi-finals to face host nation, Holland.

I reckon the ladies have their best chance of winning this but the Dutch will be their toughest test.  Best of luck to them- here's to a good game.
