Gabby Logan appeared to be ignored live on the BBC’s coverage of the Women’s World Cup semi-final between Australia and England. Sound issues meant the presenter was unable to speak to Fara Williams, with fellow pundit Alex Scott joking her old team-mate was “in a mood”.
World Cup: Australia v England watchalong at Boxpark
Logan, Scott and the rest of the BBC punditry team have flown out to Sydney for the semi-final after working the earlier rounds of the tournament from back in England. Scott was on the panel alongside former Lionesses striker Ellen White and Arsenal Women’s manager Jonas Eidevall.
Williams, the most-capped England women’s player of all time, was also in attendance. Logan attempted to grab a word with her ahead of the match.
Williams was pitch side and Logan asked for her opinion on the atmosphere in the stadium after the Australia players had just run out to start their warm-up. Logan said: “Okay let’s go down pitchside where Fara Williams is soaking up that atmosphere.
“Fara that sounded amazing then. What was it like down there?”

However, Williams clearly could not hear Logan as the pair just stared into their respective cameras. Logan broke into a smile before saying: “I’m not hearing Fara I’m afraid at the moment, I don’t know whether it’s just the levels here in this stadium going absolutely crazy.”
But Scott interrupted by joking Williams was unhappy because she was not among the main punditry panel. She said: “She’s in a mood because you’ve split us up.
“You lot said we were too jet-lagged yesterday! We were causing mayhem.”
Logan replied: “I was hoping for one of the famous Fara predictions because obviously the semi-final of the Euros she got the scoreline bang on didn’t she. So I wanted to know what her semi-final prediction was here.”

Scott responded: “Gabby, social media has been ripping me and you because we keep picking on her with these predictions.”
To which Logan said: “I know but she loves it really.”
The pundits were building up to a huge match at Stadium Australia in Sydney. Sarina Wiegman named an unchanged starting XI from the quarter-final win over Colombia on Tuesday.
Australia brought poster girl Sam Kerr into their side for the first time in the tournament. The Chelsea striker has been hampered by a calf issue and restricted to cameos off the bench so far.
