British newspaper The Mirror has been criticised for publishing a column about the Women's World Cup claiming that "a woman's place is not on a foreign field playing second-rate football."
Women In Football, an organisation promoting women who work in the sport, tweeted to mock the paper after the England team scored two goals against Canada in the first 15 minutes of their quarter-final meeting in Vancouver.
The article, printed in Saturday's edition ahead of England Women's quarter-final meeting against Canada, added: "The World Cup has shown that the women's football really isn't that good - whoever could have predicted that?
"I'm happy to bet on two flies crawling up a wall but I've refused to bet on women's football. Women already cost me enough."
The Lionesses went on to beat the hosts 2-1 and progress to the semi-finals of the competition for the first time in their history.
