Conventional wisdom has it that women are considered the fairer sex, elegant, demure, and thoroughly less oafish than your typical grunting male.

Obviously, this is a cliched stereotype, and when it comes to football, female players are just as competitive and can toe-to-toe with the best of them.

So, with that in mind, we’ve compiled the most incredible female football fights ever captured on video.

These ladies really do know how to mix it up! Watch as these bitches on the pitches get down and dirty, just like the men.

In fact, the aggression levels displayed by these women exceed anything you’ll see in the men’s game.

1. Ponytailgate

Players from the University of Oregon and Oklahoma State don’t seem to have much time for the notion of sisterhood.

Instead, the two sets of players seem happy to wage a campaign of continual violence and harassment, which easily rivals anything you’d witness during derby games in Milan or Manchester – including an epic ponytail takedown from one female player!

To be fair just as many blokes are now sporting ponytails, so it can’t be long until we see a similar incident during a men’s game.

2. SuperClasico Rumble

The derby game between Argentine clubs Boca Juniors and River Plate is considered one of the biggest fixtures in football.

According to the stats, the two teams commandeer more than 70% of all Argentine football fans between them.

So it’s no surprise that the female fixture between these two massive clubs has the same level of intensity as the men’s match.

The game starts with the two sets of players shaking hands but soon descends into a flurry of leg-breaking tackles and flying elbows.

Women say childbirth is the worst pain anyone can experience, having witnessed these tackles – I doubt that’s true!

3. Low Blow

Giving an opponent a cheeky dig while the referee is looking the other way has always been a part of the game.

However, this knee to the head really takes it to another level! I doubt even Real Madrid’s bad boy Pepe ever stooped that low!

He’d probably send this girl a signed shirt in appreciation.

4. High School Musical

Disney would have you believe that High School Girls spend most of their time singing love songs to Zac Efron – how wrong are they!

This championship match ended with players trading punches rather than phone numbers.

The fight then spills over from the pitch to the stand as fans join in the fracas – Sing along… “You know the world can see us, In a way that’s different than who we are.”

5. Chat Shit – Get Banged

The saying goes… Chat Shit – Get Banged! These players decide to trade blows during a league match in France.

Obviously, you’d never see anything like this in the French men’s league.

Frenchmen normally run a mile at the first sign of a fight…

6. Compilation Of Football Fights

And just in case you haven’t had enough from the videos above, we’ve added a compilation of even more outrageous fights and tackles from the world of women’s football.

5 Best Goals in Women’s Football

While we may have shown the worst side of women’s football in the videos above, it’s time to turn to the absolute best.

The evolution of the sport has taken the world by storm and the ladies really know how to find the back of the net as well as any of their peers or counterparts.

1. Stephanie Roche

First off, we have the FIFA Puskas Award ‘Goal Of the Year’ nominee from Peamount United striker Stephanie Roche.

It may not be the most famous team in the world, but the amazing goal went on to become an internet sensation.

Many hoped that Stephanie would become the first female winner of the prestigious Puskas Award, but ultimately, the prize was claimed by James Rodríguez of Real Madrid.

However, Stephanie was runner-up, beating Dutch legend Robin Van Persie into third place, and her goal has gone down in history as one of the best ever scored.

Hitting the ball on the full volley after two deft touches left the defender spinning. Unfortunately only one camera angle of the goal exists.

But it does show, no matter what level of football you’re playing at, how many fans are watching, or the number of cameras focused on you, great goals that can take your breath away.

Just take a look at it for yourself.

2. Marie Hammarstrom

At number two, Marie Hammarstrom with a spectacular goal for her national side, Sweden.

As the ball came out from the corner with just two touches she took out the whole of the French defence.

Then, the final touch, the sweetest of them all, she places it perfectly past the keeper, who couldn’t do anything.

This goal isn’t just one for Maries’ personal tally, it propelled Sweden the third place in the World Cup back in 2011 when her side won 2-1.

3. Mimi Pulido

Although the quality of the video is poor, the quality of the goal itself is superb.

Mimi Pulido of Lakeland Women’s Soccer scores a beauty after stealing the ball from a defender.

After the tackle, Mimi didn’t even take another touch. It’s amazing when you consider she was nearly thirty yards out at the time.

Distance obviously doesn’t faze her! She looks up and, seeing the keep out of position, strikes the ball for the first time.

4. Ellen White

Lucy Bronze may have clattered the post but Ellen White didn’t miss a beat when following up, finding the back of the net in the process.

It was England versus the USA in the She Believes Cup 2017, and White just couldn’t miss.

Just one of the 52 goals she scored for her country, Ellen White will go down in history as one of the all-time great footballers.

5. The Compilation

Yes, yes, we promised five spectacular goals and have sneakily added a compilation, but with so much talent out there in women’s football, who could blame us?

The standard has been raised over the years, and with more funding and better opportunities, the ladies are taking the footballing world by storm.

So sit back and enjoy the absolute best of the crackers scored recently.

Conclusion

So there you have it, the best and the worst of women’s football.

In women’s football, the line between thrilling highlights and tense clashes is thin, and this article showcased both sides of the sport.

From Ellen White’s impeccable finishes to heated moments that tested players’ composure, these events remind fans of the dynamic nature of football.

Celebrating the skill and spirit displayed in the best goals while reflecting on the challenges posed by on-field conflicts helps us appreciate the passion and dedication these athletes bring to the game.

As women’s football continues to grow, these moments, for better or worse, play a crucial role in shaping the future of the sport.
