Bethany’s Burritos: Balcer Details Her Insulting Reward For Winning 2019 NWSL Rookie Of The Year

I finally got around to watching the “LFG” documentary on the USWNT’s fight for equal pay earlier this week. My delay was mostly justified, as there wasn’t really any new information for anyone who has been paying attention to the saga over the last five years, but it was a good opportunity to see some of the world’s best footballers off the pitch and a strong reminder of the ongoing struggles women’s soccer players face.

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.

Christen Press Taking Time Away From Soccer For Mental Health

Harvey, Burleigh Y Coombe, Las Entrenadoras Que Inspiran En La NWSL

La liga de NWSL tiene diez equipos con mujeres de mucho talento. Cuando las jugadoras eran pequeñas no tenían referentes a quienes mirar e imitar para continuar una carrera como profesional.

Washington Spirit’s Ashley Sanchez Hits Unbelievable 89th-Minute Winner

The Washington Spirit and Orlando Pride delivered a classic NWSL match on Sunday evening at Audi Field with Marta scoring a memorable goal for the visitors before Ashley Sanchez’s spectacular game-winner in the 89th minute.

But there was no keeping out Marta’s opener in the 68th minute, which was smashed off the inside of the far post from distance.

Houston Dash Took The Champions Of Europe Barcelona To The Wire In Heroic Performance

The Houston Dash was the oddball inclusion the 2021 Women’s International Champions Cup. 

Teams like the Portland Thorns, French powerhouse Lyon and perhaps the most dominant team on the planet, Barcelona, all looked like giants compared to the Dash.
