The two games at Albufeira were not as entertaining in many ways as those before, as they were so one-sided. But there was still some good football played.

My thoughts on the games here
Brazil beat Switzerland 4-1 with two good goals by number 10 Marta Silva being the highlight. The Swiss were their rugged selves once again, conceding 21 free kicks and earning two yellow cards. Brazil weren’t far behind though in was at times a fairly tetchy encounter.
The second game between Norway and Denmark was so utterly one sided in the first half that I wondered what the Danes had been drinking the night before. Norway dominated proceedings to the extent that Denmark managed just one shot, miles wide, in the entire first half. Norway lead 3-0 at half time. Denmark played better in the second period but could hardly have been any worse.
Norway won 5-2 in the end.
Tournament winners were USA, who beat France 2-0 in the final.
