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.

FIFA president Gianni Infantino says a new Women's Club World Cup is being planned as part of a plan to "revolutionize" the female game.

In an interview with French sports newspaper L'Equipe, Infantino said he was looking forward to the first edition of the already agreed new 24-team men's Club World Cup but said a women's version was in the pipeline too.

"My dream is also to see the birth of the very first Women's Club World Cup. It’s coming very soon. And it will really revolutionize women's football," he said.

Liga MX Femenil Match Between Tigres And Chivas Produces 3 Outrageous Goals

The final round of the 2021 Liga MX Femenil regular season concluded on Monday with a marquee match between Chivas and Tigres at Akron Stadium in Guadalajara. 

Tigres entered top of the table, but a Chivas win would see las Rojiblancas take the No. 1 overall seed heading into the playoffs. This one more than lived up to the hype with three goals that you have to see.

Belen Cruz opened the scoring for Tigres in the 13th minute by following up on a rebound. 21-year-old Lizbeth Ovalle then made it 2-0 in the 16th with the first screamer of the match.

Banging Goals, Cheeky Skills And Swaggy Pre-Game Fits: The NWSL Week That Was

The NWSL Challenge Cup is in full swing and these lady ballers are here to show what makes them the best of the best. They are showing class both on and off the field; from their pre-game outfits to their goals and celebrations, you do not want to miss a single second. 

As NJ/NY Gotham FC leads the East Division and the Portland Thorns hold the No. 1 spot in the West Division, there has been great play and amazing moments during tournament play. 

USWNT Players That Are Lost But Not Forgotten

Vlatko Andonovski is trying to form an unstoppable USWNT squad and several young players have clearly been on his radar. While many of these youngsters have worked their way into the senior squad, they've bumped off some familiar faces in the process. Competition at the national team level is fierce and the best of the best will earn their spot, but for those that have not made the cut they must now work their way back under immense pressure.

Hopefully USWNT fans haven't forgotten about a few of these players that've not been consistent additions to Andonovski’s roster. 

NWSL Announcers Really Need To Fucking Stop Misgendering Athletes

OL Reign beat the Chicago Red Stars 3-2 in one of the more entertaining NWSL Challenge Cup games of the year on Tuesday night. Tziarra King had an assist and scored the late winner, further cementing her as my second favorite NWSL player (just behind of my fellow Aggie Shea Groom). 

But what stood out more than King’s heroics or Mal Pugh’s first goal since 2019 was the continued misgendering of Reign midfielder Quinn by NWSL announcers. It was made all the worse by the announcers making damn sure they used the correct surnames for recently married players.

NWSL Needs To Make Challenge Cup Permanent — With One Major Change

When the world shut down in March 2020 for Covid-19, there was a lot of fear about the future of soccer. How could we play in the midst of a pandemic, one that would kill more than half a million people in the U.S. alone? The NWSL Challenge Cup was the answer, proving you could play sports and keep everyone safe.
