15-Year-Old Scores Absurd Free Kick From 30 Yards Out To Seal Liga MX Femenil Match

Having a 15-year-old as a senior team’s designated free kick taker is a bold and risky move. After seeing this incredible Fátima Servín goal, the decision is clear. 

Querétaro Femenil was leading 1-0 in the 74th minute during a Liga MX Femenil match when the team was awarded a free kick from a considerable distance. Neither the situation nor difficulty of the shot fazed Servín, who delivered one the best strikes you will ever see.

¡Qué goalzo!

An NWSL Role Player Turned Into Lionel Messi Today In Norway

CeCe Kizer is, like many Americans in the NWSL, playing in Europe this fall as the U.S. fails to contain Covid-19. The Houston Dash midfielder didn’t go on loan to a well-known club in England like Tobin Heath and Christen Press (Manchester United), Rose Lavelle and Sam Mewis (Man City) and Alex Morgan (Tottenham). Instead she found herself a club to get some playing time while the NWSL plays a mostly meaningless Fall Series back home.

Sam Mewis’ First Man City Goal Sends Her And Rose Lavelle To Wembley

USWNT star midfielders Sam Mewis and Rose Lavelle joined Manchester City in August. They’ve already got their new club within striking distance of winning the FA Women’s Cup.

Mewis scored her first City goal and Lavelle made her City debut in an impressive 2-1 win over Arsenal in the FA Women’s Cup semifinals on Thursday. 

The Gunners had won their first three matches of the season by a combined 19-2, including a 4-0 rout of Alex Morgan’s Tottenham on Saturday. 

Megan Rapinoe Wrote A Book And It’s Coming Out Soon

While Megan Rapinoe continues her fight for equal pay for the USWNT, she’s also been hard at work on side hustles to capitalize on her own self-earned fame outside of soccer. From hosting the ESPYs to interviewing presidential candidates, the former Best FIFA Women’s Player has kept busy during the pandemic, despite not having taken the field since March.

Top 5 Reasons Tearing Your ACL Sucks

If there is one thing that absolutely sucks about playing soccer or any sport, it is the risk of getting injured. Every time you step on the field there is a chance you can get hurt. Whether it is a pulled muscle, sprained ankle, concussion or, the worst of all, a torn ACL, getting injured is never ideal for anyone. Every injury is tough, but tearing your ACL has got to be one of the most common and horrible injuries that could happen. It may be a biased opinion since I have experienced an ACL tear, but I would take a rolled ankle over hearing that pop any day. 

NWSL Fall Series Continues On Wednesday Night With Thorns Vs. Reign

After an exciting weekend of NWSL matches with plenty of goals and quality plays, the games continue on Wednesday, Sept. 30 at 10:00 p.m. EST with the Portland Thorns welcoming OL Reign to Providence Park. 

The Thorns are coming off their first match — and win — of the Fall Series after defeating the Utah Royals 3-0 on Sunday, Sept. 20. Simone Charley, Lindsey Horan and Sophia Smith all tallied goals. Smith debuted for Portland, scored her first professional goal and truly showed why she was the No. 1 draft pick in 2020. 

OL Reign's Madison Hammond Becomes First Native American Player In NWSL History

Rookie defender Madison Hammond collected a bunch of firsts after her OL Reign faced off against the Utah Royals in their Fall Series debut.

Canadians Simultaneously Earn Player Of The Week Honors In Both MLS And NWSL

Richie Laryea and Sophie Schmidt made history by becoming the first Canadians ever to simultaneously win MLS and NWSL Player of the Week honors. Laryea was named MLS Player of the Week after he tallied one goal and two assists for Toronto FC. Houston Dash midfielder Schmidt scored, had an assist and played a crucial role in the Dash’s third goal to defeat Orlando Pride, earning herself Budweiser Woman of the Week.

Both of the Canadians showed off their composure and creative abilities, and they are both, without a doubt, representing their nation one accolade at a time. 

Alex Morgan Got A Front-Row Seat To The Prettiest Chipped Goal Of 2020

Alex Morgan didn’t get on the field in her first match at Tottenham. The USWNT striker was an unused substitute as Spurs lost to North London rival Arsenal in the quarterfinals of the FA Women’s Cup. But Morgan did get a front-row view of the gorgeous Jordan Nobbs goal vs Tottenham that sent Arsenal on its way to a 4-0 win.

Here’s When (And How) You Can Finally Watch Alex Morgan Play For Tottenham

Alex Morgan, having apparently eschewed any quarantines like Tobin Heath and Christen Press underwent, is set to make her debut with Women’s Super League club Spurs in the coming days. So we thought we’d provide some photos of the USWNT superstar training with her new club, plus provide details on how to watch the Alex Morgan Tottenham debut.
