How The Women's World Cup Works: A Guide For Everyone

In many ways, the Women’s World Cup is a lot like its male counterpart. In many ways, it isn’t. So with the tournament set to arrive this summer in France, we thought we’d explain how the Women's World Cup works in 2019.

The men’s World Cup has been around since 1930, but the women’s World Cup didn’t start until 1991. The men’s World Cup has 32 teams, the women’s just 24. The U.S. sucks at the men’s World Cup; the U.S. dominates at the Women’s World Cup.

Abby Wambach’s Goal Against Brazil In 2011 Was The Best In U.S. Soccer History And You Can’t Convince Me Otherwise

The U.S. women’s national team has a remarkable record of reaching the semifinals in every Women’s World Cup. It’s a major reason why we often refer to the USWNT as the greatest sports team of all time. But the road to the final four hasn’t always been easy, and in 2011, the USWNT came closer than ever to an early exit. Only a stunning late Abby Wambach goal vs Brazil — I’d argue the greatest goal in U.S. soccer history — saved the Americans from a quarterfinal exit. 

What’s Up With Mallory Pugh?

Mallory Pugh has unfortunately had a few injuries that've set her back, causing her to miss out on USWNT play, NWSL play and falling behind in fitness and performance. As a top-tier athlete, injuries can make or break players, and with the immense amount of young talent joining the USWNT senior squad, this leaves Pugh’s future on the squad unknown. 

Rapinoe Admits Olympics Might Not Happen, But That Outcome Would “Devastate” Her And Teammates

World Cup winning U.S. midfielder Megan Rapinoe said she would be "devastated" if this year's Tokyo Olympics are cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Organizers were forced to reiterate their commitment to holding the Olympics in July and August after a report on Friday said Japan's government had privately concluded the Games would have to be cancelled because of the pandemic.

USWNT Just Got A Whole Lot Better: FIFA Approves Catarina Macario’s Nationality Switch

One of the most exciting prospects in women’s soccer history is now eligible to play internationally for the United States. FIFA approved Catarina Macario’s switch to represent the USWNT, and she could play for her adopted country as soon as Monday.

Here’s What The USWNT’s 2021 Schedule Looks Like

As much as people love to hate on 2020 for being a crappy year, the sad truth is that as the calendar turns to 2021, our problems won’t magically go away. It’ll be many months — years even — until the Covid-19 vaccine can be fully administered to the global population. Most of the world’s governments are still doing everything in their power to ignore climate change. And let’s not forget police officers are still shooting unarmed Black men with near impunity. But one thing the change in year will bring about is more games on the 2021 USWNT schedule.

Christine Sinclair Wins Canadian Female Athlete Of The Year Award

Christine Sinclair was recently named Canadian Press Female Athlete of the Year after becoming the world's all-time leading international scorer in 2020.

Sinclair's made her mark representing Canada and made history in January while helping her national team book its ticket to the Tokyo Olympics. As someone who grew up watching Sinclair — and admiring her ability to find open space and be a threat in the attack every time she's on the ball — it's no surprise that she's continuing to be recognized for her talents. 

Tobin Heath Scores 2 Must-Watch Goals In Manchester United Victory

Manchester United, top of the FA WSL, hammered Bristol City, bottom of the division, 6-1 on Sunday with Tobin Heath scoring a late brace.  

Millie Turner, Jessica Sigsworth and a Leah Galton double had given United a 4-0 lead by the 63rd-minute, but Ebony Salmon pulled one back for City in the 72nd. Heath restored the four-goal advantage seven minutes from time by curling one into the top corner from nearly 25 yards out.
