After weeks of disappointedly saying “Oh, it’s just birds” whenever he turned on the TV and saw the England women’s team playing, football fan Dave Concrete has grudgingly admitted that the women’s game might be the real thing after all.
This change of heart is thought to have come when he realised the England women’s team were doing rather well, and were in fact more likely than their male counterparts to win a tournament anytime soon.
However, this newfound respect for the women’s team doesn’t seem to have translated into knowing anything about them, as Concrete remarked that he “really liked the blonde one with the ponytail… no not her, the other one… hang on, are we the ones in white?”
However, the female referees at the tournament have come in for criticism for their habit of giving out red cards and responding to player protests by turning away, arms folded, and saying “Well if you don’t know what you did, I’m certainly not gonna tell you.”
