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.

Perception Of ‘Cute White Girls’ Key For USWNT Popularity, Says WNBA Legend Sue Bird

Point guard Bird, who won her fourth WNBA title this month, said in an interview with CNN that elite basketball players were more quickly judged by people based on their appearance.

Tobin Heath And Christen Press Score Their First Goals For Manchester United

Manchester United defeated West Ham 4-2 on Sunday for its fourth straight win in the FA Women’s Super League. USWNT stars Tobin Heath and Christen Press both scored their first goals for the Red Devils and 21-year-old English forward Alessia Russo added a brace in the victory.

United opened the scoring in the 20th minute after Heath’s merry dance out wide eventually led to a pass for Katie Zelem. Zelem picked out Leah Galton at the far post, and she put it on a platter for Russo. 

College Megastar Catarina Macario Is Now A U.S. Citizen — But She’s Not Eligible For USWNT Just Yet

On Thursday, Vlatko Andonovski called Catarina Macario into the USWNT fall training camp. Later that day, Macario, a Brazilian-born college megastar, announced she had obtained U.S. citizenship.
