The "beautiful game" is the king and queen of all sports
US women footballers are not on the same level as the Japanese when it comes to technical skills but if the referee allows it, US may easily win by physically destroying the Japanese game. However, that wouldn't be in the interest of "the beautiful game" would it. To be fair though, US men and women have also a reputation of stretching themselves in the hard place more than most. Klevius will naturally applaud the team that plays the best football and manages to score without assists from the referee in this particular match.
Football, unlike American "football", is open for all shapes and sizes. The world's best male player is 169 cm.
In football there are players who could be described as heavy weight muscle mountains, but then there are also players like one of England's best players ever, Peter Crouch, who measures 203 cm and weighed in with a proportionally tiny 75 kg.
Marta da Silva 161 cm
Birgit Prinz 179 cm

David (Marta/Brazil) won Goliat (Wambach/US) in women's world cup semi-final by "playing like men" - size doesn't matter & no Islamic team even close!
Klevius EMAH comment (EMAH = the Even More Astonishing Hypothesis on brain/consciousness/motoric function): During childhood and adolescence, white matter anisotropy changes in the brain affect the posterior limb of the internal capsule, intrathalamic connections, and corpus callosum. The presence of stimuli for these changes seem to be important for childhood development of attention, motor skills, cognitive ability, and memory. As one of the most significent differences between humans and other primates is a higher proportion of white matter (i.e. brain connections), and as we do know that women tend to have a lower proportion than men, my guess is that most, perhaps all, of this difference may be signed sex segregation in upbringing. (for a deeper understanding of the brain/body interface see EMAH)!
Klevius evolutionary comment (also see Klevius evolution blog): The desperate search for evolutionary traces supporting sexist sex segregation prejudices (see From Klevius without love) is perhaps best exemplified by the notorious Lawrence Summers, the president of Harvard University, and his fanatic ideas abt innate sexism. Now a "researcher" at the same university, Coren Apicella, delivers the next stupidity on this path by wildly speculating ("We really don't know what is behind this yet") that males with deeper voice pitch are better breeders (made me think abt high pitch Somali males in Sweden with some ten kids each - yes, of course I know it's the same cultural sexism but in the shape of Islam). Apicella conducted her "research" by driving randomly in Tanzania and asking pygmy-like statured Hadza males abt their kids! But when there is a positive expectation/demand for a certain result, the quality of the research usually suffers. It's also noteworthy that human evolution during the last two million years has been precisely in the opposite direction, namely towards less, not more, sexual dimorphism, i.e. we (in general, - I don't know abt Summers) have distanced ourselves from Gorillas, Orangutangs etc! It may also be noted that according to Frank W Marlowe "Hadza men value fertility in a mate more than women do, and women value intelligence more than men do"! Furthermore, according to Klevius, one may also consider the effects of Bantu/Arab gene flow (not the least because of Bantu/Islamic slavery) on a pygmy-like population (or didn't she even control for the stature/pitch relation?!).
Lack of talented football girls is "cured" by size in many teams
In football (soccer) too big size may, in fact, be a handicap (btw, Wambach isn't too big). Most of the best football stars have been small or medium size (Pele, Maradona, Carlos, Hamm, Marta etc). However, because most girls have been so heavily brainwashed with sex segregation the pool of talents has been dried up to an extent that forces teams to compensate with size. In women's 2007 World championship teams with real talents may be best represented by North Korea and Brazil. The former has avoided this effect of sex segregation because of its rigid DDR-style system, and the latter because of its lack of system.
For fanatic, sex segregated thinking, however, the small (10-15%) sexual dimorphism among modern humans seems to be more of a problem than the much bigger difference within the sexes. A sexistperson may have no problem with the huge difference in quality between elite football and e.g. corporate or junior level football, but are unable to filter female football! Why?!
Here's Birgit Prinz's stunning goal discussed by Klevius back in 2009
Klevius wrote 2009:
Did Germany's Birgit Prinz, score the best ever goal (incl. those of men) in 2009?
The video is here (it can only be seen from the original posting).
1 The attack (from an in-throw) was as clean as it gets. Check out the video & consider how Simone Laudehr's extremely well placed pass (into an open but crucial area) is taken by Inka Grings who was initially further from the ball than Prinz, who runs in the opposite direction.
2 Inka Grings then does just the opposite to what one would have expected. Instead of running with the ball into the empty space from where she could have tried a cross to Birgit Prinz, she turns against & between two defenders and quickly squares the ball across the penalty area just before Birgit Prinz encounters the defenders.
3 Birgit Prinz accelerates strongly & manages not only to reach the ball before a defender crashes into her, but also to cheat the goalkeeper (see how the keeper moves to the wrong direction) while then perfectly turning her foot in the last fraction of a second to give the ball ultimate precision, before she is smashed to the ground by the flying defender.
Who said women's football is boring?
Size doesn't matter in football
However, although Birgit Prinz is a six footer (179 cm), in footbal you can be any size & still world class. Lionel Messi, the world's best male player 2009 is 169 cm/67 kg, while the next best (Xavi) is 170 cm/69 kg! Third place Ronaldo is 185 cm. Among women Marta da Silva (162 cm/57 kg) is the world's best player for the fourth year in a row, with Birgit Prinz right behind!
Football is the most emancipating sport in the world
This goal hasn’t even been mentioned among the best, perhaps because women’s football is hardly mentioned at all in the media. And the reason for this is the same as with evil islam, namely that so many women participate in directing girls into the sex segregation trap of their own *starting physically with Indonesian muslim women who mutilate every female child, to Western glamour feminists who push their daughters into the time consuming trap of empty & pointless artificial "feminization".
As Otto Weininger put it a century ago: "The main obstacle for women's emancipation is the Woman".
Klevius doesn't in any sense want to point out how women should behave, quite the contrary. He couldn't call himself intelligent if he would, could he! However, what Klevius does want to do is to help minimizing the number of girls who limit themselves or commit self rape becaudse of cultural sexism. In this Klevius stands in the deapest oppositition to islam, while Mr X US "president" says he "respect" islam (and no wonder, look at his islamofascist pals)!
Origin of islam & its evil parasitic booty/sex/slavery/reproduction formula
Btw, a professor friend (sociology) thinks I “uber-emphasize” sex segregation. My question then to him & to all of you is: How can one ever “uber-emphasize” something that affects negatively & directly HALF of the world population, & indirectly the WHOLE of the world population, & which is upheld on no logical grounds at all?! And which constitutes the cornerstone for the evil interface between islam & the rest of the world! And which constitutes the main difference in OIC's Cairo Declaration which (initiated by Saudi islamic theocracy) aims for the destruction of UN's 1948 Human Rights Declaration, combined with a global effort (via UN) to criminalize criticism of islam! Read more from Klevius (e.g. From Freud to bin Laden or What is sex segregation?) to understand why islam & feminism share so much & why the first feminists didn't support votes for women! And why feminists can't agree if Mary Wollstonecraft was a feminist or an anti-feminist!
Or perhaps Klevius Marriage, kinship & friendship
Or even better, the most important sociological paper from the last century: Angels of Antichrist - kinship vs social state
