Watch France Score 10 Seconds Into Match With Just 6 Touches (And Yes That’s A Record)

Outside of the USWNT, no nation has the qualify of offensive firepower available to the French national team. And France just broke a record that not even Alex Morgan and the Americans can top.

Even without Amandine Henry, a surprise exclusion from the France squad during this international break, France obliterated North Macedonia 11-0 on Friday in Women’s Euro qualifying. Not only did the Les Bleues dominated straight from the opening whistle, they scored mere seconds after the first kick.

This 20-Year-Old Striker Dominating In China Might Be The Future Of Women’s Football

LUSAKA — After clinching the top scorer award in the Women's Chinese Super League, Zambian footballer Barbra Banda is inspiring girls at home to follow in her footsteps.

The 20-year-old won the Golden Boot of China's top flight after scoring 18 goals in 13 games.

The powerful forward, playing her debut season in China, finished the campaign nine goals ahead of her nearest challenger Temwa Chawinga of Wuhan Jianghan. Having helped her side seal third place in the standings, Banda has been the talk of the league.

World-Class Crystal Dunn Traded Away For Backup Goalkeeper, Allocation Money

In terms of all-around talent, I’m not sure there’s a better player in the world than Crystal Dunn. A world-class striker, she’s also proven to be a stellar fullback and midfielder — wherever she’s asked to play she’s one of the best at that position.

So it’s stunning to see one of the world’s best footballers traded around the NWSL for what amounts to a pittance compared to the value of this superstar.

WSL Player Stays On Pitch For Full 90 Minutes Despite 2 Yellow Cards

FA Women’s Super League referee Lucy Oliver is in hot water after she made a critical error during Sunday’s match between Everton and Brighton & Hove Albion.

Oliver is receiving heavy criticism after she issued two yellow cards to Brighton forward Kayleigh Green but didn’t produce a red card. Oliver either forgot how to count up to two or had a major lapse in concentration. I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt and guess it was the latter.

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

Seattle Storm's Sue Bird believes women's soccer players in the United States are more widely supported than their counterparts in the WNBA because of the public perception of them as "cute little white girls."

There Has Never Been A Better Time To Get Into European Women’s Soccer Than This Weekend

Let’s be real here: Women’s soccer has a long way to go to receive media coverage as widespread as men’s soccer, to get even half the coverage it deserves. Sadly, many organizations simply don’t put the necessary resources into what accounts for half of the beautiful game. But there has never been a better time to support women’s football — and for those who want to know how to watch women's soccer in the U.S., it’s never been easier.
