That’s so rad!
Ugh. Sauerbrunn was pushing so hard to get back for the WC. I hope she hasn’t reinjured or permanently hurt herself. She was out last weekend.What a blow for a true role model.Sauerbrunn out is a big blow to this roster. Demelo lighting up club, but in with no caps is a surprise and I’m hoping it doesn’t mean Lavelles injury is also a problem. This team will sorely miss Swanson, Sauerbrunn, Macario and even Sam Mewis
My kid in her new #4 splatter kit is crushed
The leadership is a big piece of it as well as all the attention she soaks up. Pinoe allows the younger and more media-shy players to stay out of the spotlight.Rapinoe looked like she was doing a farewell tour four years ago. Has she bounced back or is she still valuable as a leader?
A Brazil win would be seismic, but so unlikely.If we don't win, I think my rooting interest (among reasonable contenders) goes Brazil, France, Australia, Canada. Yes, Brazil leads my list even despite being coached by Pia Sundhage, I think them winning would just be a great thing for women's football and the popularity of the game in their home country where they're pretty badly mistreated.
Kind of wish she retired 2-3 years ago.Pino retiring at the end of the NWSL season. Her career has arced the massive transformation of women’s soccer in the US and its rise in global prominence. Oh, and she’s an absolute legend.
FIFA said it is giving away 20,000 free tickets for Women's World Cup games in Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington and Dunedin amid concerns about the slow pace of sales in New Zealand.
Co-hosts Australia have snapped up the lion's share of the 1 million tickets sold so far, with their Matildas team seen as contenders to win the tournament.
FIFA chief women's football officer Sarai Bareman said it was more difficult to attract fans to football stadiums in New Zealand due to the sport's lower profile in the country, while the Football Ferns have yet to win a match in five previous appearances at the World Cup.
Republic of Ireland manager Vera Pauw has said her players "feared for their bodies" during a Women's World Cup warm-up match with Colombia that was called off after 20 minutes following a series of robust challenges.
The Irish Football Association confirmed midfielder Denise O'Sullivan was taken to hospital for treatment on a shin injury during the friendly at Meakin Park in Brisbane, Australia, but was found not to have suffered a fracture and could still play for Ireland at the tournament.
Just tuning in. Ireland are a spicy side, and Oz without Kerr is not so fearsome. Should be fun here.No one watching? Unfortunately I had an ER visit with Mrs O at 3:30 am ( all is well, no worries) so I caught some of NZL-NOR. Kiwis were up for it.
AUS-IRL at 10’. AUS has the ball as you’d expect but the Irish are defending with vigor, certainly don’t mind a tackle with some mustard on it.
