USWNT Changes Worked, But More Finishing Needed Against Germany

Win and move on — it’s what the knockout stage is all about. Score one goal or 10, does it really matter? When you’re a two-time World Cup winning side and you wear the crest of the United States, the how almost matters as much as the result. So, color a lot of people unimpressed […]

USWNT Puts In Their Best WWC Performance In Quarterfinal Win

After a lackluster performance in their Round of 16 game against Colombia, the USWNT rebounded by putting in a pretty dominating performance against China in the Quarterfinals.

Who does Team USA play with Megan Rapinoe out for Friday?

On Monday, the USA defeated Colombia 2-0. While Colombia never mounted a significant attack or shot on goal, the victory was a bit unconvincing. After all games thus far, critics have pointed out America’s shaky play. Primarily, the reason for this criticism is twofold: an overreliance on playing long balls to Abby Wambach, and the […]

Japan, Netherlands put on show to end women’s World Cup round of 16

Boring, unwatchable, “not worthy”, slow and on and on…we’ve all heard the criticism of the women’s soccer game. Some of it is frankly true, and some of it has been on display at the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup. None of it was on display late on Tuesday night as Japan and the Netherlands clashed […]

VIDEO: Netherlands player whiffs on open chance

Open chances against the reigning World Cup champions in the first few minutes of a knockout stage game? Dream come true, right?

USWNT “Wins” 2-0 Over Colombia in Women’s World Cup

Don’t let the final score fool you, the US Women’s National Team defeated Colombia 2-0 in the Round of 16 of the Women’s World Cup. While the final score may have been 2-0 for the USA, the game tells a different story. After a rather dominant beginning of the game by the United States, Colombia […]

SI NFL Analyst trashes women’s sports as USWNT ratings proving him wrong

Congratulations Andy Benoit, you’re likely to be internet famous in the next few hours. Oh no he didn’t….but alas, he did indeed.

Benoit was […]

VIDEO: England’s Lucy Bronze Scores Goal of Tournament

Who’s the Real Favorite in the Women’s World Cup?

Blame it on the artificial turf, blame it on the location, blame it on the increased investment by many more countries than in previous years but there doesn’t seem to be a good to honest favorite to win the Women’s World Cup. We have as many as six to nine legitimate contenders for the Women’s […]

VIDEO: Norwegian WNT Makes Fun of Sexist Stereotypes in Mockumentary

It’s no secret that women’s soccer gets some very sexist stereotypes thrown at those involved in the sport. These stereotypes surface the most during the Women’s World Cup. There is progress in that I personally have noticed fewer sexist remarks this year than four years ago but it’s still there. Players can take that in […]
