I Feel The Need, The Need For Speed: The Fastest Women’s Soccer Players

Speed is an unteachable attribute that every athlete, no matter the sport, desires. Everyone wants to know who is the fastest. When it comes to women’s soccer, finding the answer to this question isn’t so simple. Top sprint speed is a niche statistic that isn’t tracked too often in the women’s game. With the data that is available, here is a list of some of the fastest women's soccer players.

It’s Official: The USWNT Returns This Month

The U.S. Women's National Team will return from an extended break due to the COVID-19 pandemic with an exhibition game against the Netherlands on Nov. 27.

The rematch of the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup final, won 2-0 by the Americans, will be played at Rat Verlegh Stadium in Breda, Netherlands, about 67 miles south of Amsterdam. There will be no fans in the stands. The U.S. squad last played March 11, when it beat Japan 3-1 to win the SheBelieves Cup in Frisco, Texas.

Devastating Own Goal Costs Arsenal FA WSL Points Vs. Chelsea

It took 85 minutes of play that left very little to the imagination, but Sunday’s FA WSL clash between Arsenal and Chelsea roared into life at the death as Beth Mead’s potential winner was cancelled out by Lotte Wubben-Moy’s 90th-minute own goal. 

Sam Kerr still had the opportunity to win it for Chelsea in stoppage time, but her lob drifted wide to spare Arsenal keeper Manuela Zinsberger any further embarrassment. 

Tobin Heath’s Swerving Banger Sparks Man United’s 2-Goal Comeback Against Man City

The Manchester Derby finally got the American flair we’ve all been waiting for. It was worth the wait.

Tobin Heath’s marvelous strike in the 54th minute sparked a two-goal rally as Manchester United fought back for a 2-2 draw with Manchester City on Saturday at Leigh Sports Village in Manchester. 

Rapinoe Spoke About Her Dad Being A Trump Supporter On The Daily Show

Few have been as outspoken against the 45th president of the United States as Megan Rapinoe. Asked if she’d go to the White House if the USWNT won the 2019 World Cup, she responded: “I’m not going to the fucking White House.”

On Thursday, the 2019 Ballon d’Or winner spoke about having a dad who actually supported the man who lost the 2020 presidential election. 

Heath, Press Were The Intriguing Final Two Picks Of Racing Louisville’s Expansion Draft

Racing Louisville FC grabbed two U.S. Women's World Cup champions in the National Women's Soccer League expansion draft Thursday, selecting midfielder Tobin Heath and forward Christen Press with their final two picks.

The Louisville squad is set to become the NWSL's 10th team when it kicks off play in 2021.

The rights to Heath were selected from the Portland Thorns, and the rights to Press were obtained from the Utah Royals. However, it is unclear when or if either of the stars might play for Racing Louisville.

Megan Rapinoe Admits She’s More Entertainer Than Athlete

Megan Rapinoe is one of the world’s best footballers — her trophy cabinet alone serves as proof: two Women’s World Cup winner’s medals, an Olympic gold medal and a Ballon d’Or. But the USWNT superstar and global icon divulged something on the Tonight Show this week that many athletes would never admit: She’s more of an entertainer than an athlete.

Valencia’s Flor Bonsegundo Has Scored The Coldest Goal Imaginable

This is not a kind goal from Valencia’s Flor Bonsegundo. 

As a 27-year-old Argentine, the obvious inclination is to say this is Lionel Messi-esque. But truthfully this is maybe more Ronaldo Luís Nazário de Lima, except Ronaldo always used his remarkable pace to round the keeper — he rarely finished with a delicate chip like this.

So really all you can say is this is a Flor Bonsegundo goal. 

We’ve never seen a player dice someone to the floor, play a pass to themselves through two defenders and then finish in this manner. QUÉ HACE
