World Cup Day 3 recap and Day 4 open thread

England v Haiti: Group D - FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia & New Zealand 2023 Photo by Justin Setterfield/Getty Images

USA vs. Vietnam may have gotten all the headlines here in the Former Colonies, but if you ask me it was England vs. Haiti that was the real banger from Day 3 of the FIFA Women’s World Cup. I didn’t stay up late (or get up early?) to watch it, but I did see the highlights and it really looks like Haiti put in a solid and dangerous performance against an England team that are among the favorites to win it all.

Roll on Day 4.
