2019 Women’s World Cup Language: Consolation Goal
In today’s Group F game between Sweden and Thailand the Thai side scored their first goal of this World Cup and even though this goal counted for nothing, as they were beaten 5-1, it meant a lot to the Asian side. Remember that they had lost 13-0 to the USA four days earlier so keeping the score down with a much-improved performance, along with their goal, demonstrated great heart from the Thailand side. The idea of a consolation goal is when a team scores knowing that they have little or no chance of winning and so when this goal was scored in the 91st minute it can be described as a consolation goal – worth no points but it made the Thai players and fans feel much better.
