Hi everybody,
I have never watch womens football match. so I have no idea but I don't agree with the sentence" Women cant play football." Maybe, they have different biological structure. according to men. Men are stronger and faster

I have never watched women football, but once I played football with a girl... against a girl, and I lost the game. So based on my experience I think women football also can be attractive to watch, it just needs more advertising.

I rarely wacth women's football, because I haven't got enough time. Many people don't wacth women's football. They think that it isn't fast and spectacular, but it is more correct.

I never watch football - men's football neither, though in my country people is very football fan, but I support women that play. Women have been displaced in many areas, and they deserve to be recognized.

I watched women's football. Not popular in my country. I think it's a little boring and unexciting. so it doesn't have much audience. women play more polite. Guess the football is a hard favorite game.

I have never seen woman's footbal. Perhaps because it hadn't never shown on TV.

I think that not very much people watch women's footbal because the matches are not really nice to see, despite nowadays the technique of the teams is better than a few years ago, people like to see good moves and gambles between the players and that kind of things, but in the women's matches those things are not very common. Although the level of technique is improving every year, I think it'll take a few years more to became a more popular sport.
