I’m Embarrassed For EA Sports Over Their Attempt At FIFA 22 Women’s Ratings; How Is Rapinoe Still This High?

Another year, another FIFA game where it’s obvious EA Sports paid no attention to women’s soccer. The FIFA 22 women's ratings are somehow even worse than last year, once again proving the WoSo portion of the franchise is merely lip service to try to appease women without actually putting in any effort.

FIFA 22 Still Refuses To Treat Women’s Soccer As Anything More Than A Gimmick

FIFA 22 announced the full list of squads available in the latest edition of the world’s preeminent soccer video game. Sadly, EA Sports has once again failed to put any real effort into the women’s portion of the game, which remains a sad little diversion instead of a meaningful game mode. 

We Tried These Totally Real PB&J Sandwiches From The 12 Countries Competing In Women’s Soccer This Summer

Twelve different countries are competing in women’s soccer this summer and are putting on one of the greatest shows ever seen. What if this clash of culture and competition was decided on the kitchen counter instead of the field? 

Alyssa Naeher (3 PK Saves) Was The Hero The USWNT Really Effing Needed

The USWNT has been far from impressive at the Tokyo Olympics. The defense has been shaky, the midfield often overrun and the forwards unable to stay onside. But Team USA is through to the medal rounds thanks to the heroics of goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher, the one constant this tournament.

Don’t Look Now U.S. Soccer Fans, But Thursday Night/Friday Morning Could Be The Darkest 12 Hours In History

U.S. Soccer morale isn’t too high across the board right now. On the women’s side the USWNT has done anything but impress at the 2020 Olympics with one decent performance and two horror shows. Meanwhile on the men’s side, the B-team is grinding out Gold Cup results and is preparing for its biggest challenge yet, Qatar.

USMNT

I’ve seen several posts online from fans in agreement that they would rather lose to Mexico 5-0 than fall to Qatar at home. I would have to agree in all honesty.

Vivianne Miedema, La Máquina De Goles Que Amenaza A Estados Unidos En Los JJ.OO.

Se acabó la fase de grupos del fútbol femenil en los Juegos Olímpicos de Tokio y entre las conclusiones no hay dudas de que Estados Unidos fue una verdadera y sonora decepción. Las actuales campeonas del mundo avanzaron a los cuartos de final, pero detrás dejaron una imagen bastante vulnerable: derrota ante Suecia (0-3), triunfo ante Nueva Zelandia (6-1) y un extremadamente aburrido 0-0 ante Australia.

Sleep Be Damned, You Don’t Want To Miss Another Group F Olympic Soccer Match

Speaking from firsthand experience, I know how hard it can be on your body to wake up in the middle of the night to watch Olympic soccer played in Japan. I thought it was fun in 2002 for the World Cup, but my body rebelled hard after the first day of play on Wednesday. 

And yet, I can’t wait to wake up early for the next Group F match, because those games have been stupidly entertaining at the 2020 Olympics.

Zambia Concedes 10 Goals In Olympic Debut With Several Being Absolute Howlers

Zambia’s women’s soccer team was supposed to be the feel-good story of the tournament. The team shocked Cameroon to get to Tokyo, came to the tournament with nothing to lose and have a striker who was a sprinter in the 2008 Olympics. The fun ended rather quickly when the World Cup runner-up Netherlands torched the Copper Queens 10-3 on Wednesday.
