Character error 

When Jess takes the free kick at the end of the match the goalkeeper positions the wall then stands on the wrong side of the goal behind the wall making it easier for Jess to score.
Jess's team, Hounslow Harriers, is playing Queens Park Rangers (QPR) in the final. A woman wearing a QPR scarf is sitting behind the Harriers' bench and is seen cheering after Jules and Jess score goals against QPR.

Continuity 

In the match where Jess and Jules aren't getting along, Jule's hair is held back by a metal headband, except in one close-up where it is held back by a thick, black headband. It then goes back to the metal headband. Then in the final game Jules is wearing the black headband again.
When Jules is shown in the game (when she and Jess aren't getting along) after Jess scores, her jersey is inside out.
When Jess is playing in her first game for the Harriers, after/while she scores she is shown wearing her new silver and red Adidas boots even though she hasn't bought them yet.
At the very end when Jules and Jess are going to board the plane, they turn around and wave to their parents. Jules is at first shown waving with her right hand, but then in the next shot is seen waving with her left.

When Jules is in her bed depressed, she takes the picture of her and Joe and crumples it. But when it is seen in the trash, it only has a few creases in it and it looks pretty intact.

When the men are fighting over the video camera at the wedding, one man gets it away from the cameraman and in the next shot the cameraman has it back in his arms and curls up on the floor with it.

During several games, Jules' hair goes from being held back by bobby pins, then to a headband, and back to bobby pins.

Crew or equipment visible 

A crew member was in the back seat, rocking the car at the airport that Jess's sister and her fianc» are in alone. At one point you can see three heads pop up over the seat.

Revealing mistakes 

The speaker during the match which is supposed to be in Hamburg speaks German with an English accent and makes typical English errors (e.g. he says "... Elfmeter ausgeführt bei Nummer 7 Jess ..." instead of "... durch Nummer 7 ..." announcing the penalty)
