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.

Carli Lloyd Scores 4 Goals On First 12 Touches As USWNT Takes Out Olympic Frustrations On Paraguay

After a disappointing third-place finish at the Olympics, the USWNT set out on what was supposed to be a victory tour of sorts with a pair of friendlies against Paraguay in September and two more against South Korea in October. With the U.S. only “celebrating” an unsatisfactory bronze medal, the four-time world champions took out their frustrations on a Paraguay squad that may have wished it had just stayed home.

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.

Latest FIFA Rankings: England Reaches The Heights, But USMNT Out Of Top 10

Euro 2020 finalists England pushed world champions France out of the top three in world soccer body FIFA's latest men's soccer rankings published on Thursday.

Belgium remained the top ranked side, followed by Brazil. European champions Italy, on a record unbeaten international run of 37 matches, are fifth with Argentina sixth.

Third place equals England's highest ranking since 2012. Gareth Southgate's side lost on penalties to Italy in the Euro 2020 final at Wembley in July and were World Cup semifinalists in Russia in 2018. France went out of Euro 2020 in the Round of 16.

U.S. Soccer Thinks It Found Solution To Equal Pay; USWNTPA Calls It PR Stunt

The United States Women's National Team Players Association (USWNTPA) on Wednesday labeled the U.S. Soccer Federation's offer of identical contract proposals for both the men's and women's teams as a nothing more than a publicity stunt.

The U.S. Soccer Federation (USSF) announced its offer on Tuesday as part of an effort it said was to align the women's and men's national teams under one collective bargaining agreement.

Descubren Posible Nuevo Escudo De La Selección Mexicana: ¿Qué Es Lo Que Sabemos Hasta Ahora?

El concepto rebranding se multiplica como plaga en el universo del fútbol, especialmente a la hora de rediseñar escudos de clubes y selecciones. Basta mirar a la MLS. Sin embargo, hoy el turno pertenece a México. O al menos eso es lo que parece luego del hallazgo hecho por Bill Reese, un usuario en Twitter que encontró la posible nueva insignia del Tri en el sitio de la Oficina de Patentes y Marcas Registradas de los Estados Unidos, USPTO por sus siglas en inglés.

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. 

Christen Press Taking Time Away From Soccer For Mental Health

If there’s one thing you should take away from Season 2 of Ted Lasso, it’s that mental health is of utmost importance. Christen Press probably already knew this, and on Thursday the USWNT forward announced she would be stepping away from the beautiful game to focus on herself.

Nutmeg Queen Set To Make London Her New Home

Christen Press, Sam Mewis, Rose Lavelle, Abby Dahlkemper and Alex Morgan are all returning to the NWSL after brief stints in the FA Women’s Super League last season. But one USWNT star is sticking around: Tobin Heath.

One of the most entertaining footballers in the world, Heath has been searching for a European club to call home since the Olympics ended. It appears she’s found one in the only English club to win a Women’s Champions League title: Arsenal.

Reports on Thursday said Heath had agreed to personal terms to join Arsenal on a free transfer from Manchester United.
