How The Women's World Cup Works: A Guide For Everyone

In many ways, the Women’s World Cup is a lot like its male counterpart. In many ways, it isn’t. So with the tournament set to arrive this summer in France, we thought we’d explain how the Women's World Cup works in 2019.

The men’s World Cup has been around since 1930, but the women’s World Cup didn’t start until 1991. The men’s World Cup has 32 teams, the women’s just 24. The U.S. sucks at the men’s World Cup; the U.S. dominates at the Women’s World Cup.

New USWNT Roster Last Chance For Players To Earn Spot In World Cup Qualifying

If you just look at the opponent, the USWNT’s April friendlies against Uzbekistan are likely to be fairly drab. Matches against the 48th-ranked team in the world in Ohio and Philadelphia, on the face of it, don’t really kindle much enthusiasm. But the April USWNT roster makes it clear: This is the final chance for some young players to earn a spot on the team at World Cup and Olympic qualifying this summer in Mexico.

When Ashlyn Harris Tried To Defend Her Wife On Twitter, Trinity Rodman Clapped Back To Defend Her Team

Social media is often a horrible place, I think we can all agree. But sometimes it gives us wonderful moments of schadenfreude, moments when we can step back from an argument and be oh so happy we’re not involved. There was one such popcorn-grabbing moment this weekend when Ashlyn Harris and Trinity Rodman got into a Twitter feud after their respective clubs played on Friday.

Megan Rapinoe To Harder & Eriksson: ‘Because You’re Both Beautiful, You’re Not Gay Looking, It Does Break Barriers’

Pernille Harder and Magdalena Eriksson are icons in the women’s soccer world, not just for their accomplishments on the pitch but for the way they’re openly gay in a world that isn’t always accepting of LGBTQ+ people. But even they have heroes, and this week they spoke with one of their role models, USWNT star Megan Rapinoe.

What Does Dos A Cero Mean? Explaining The USMNT-Mexico Rivalry With One Score

The first time I heard it, I wasn’t quite sure what I was hearing. I attended the first USMNT-Mexico game after the 2002 World Cup meeting, a friendly in Houston, and kept hearing fans yelling “dos a cero.” I knew enough Spanish to translate the phrase, but I had no idea of the Dos a Cero meaning and history, let alone what it would turn into.

Little did I know back in 2003, but Dos a Cero would come to define the American perspective of the USA-Mexico men’s soccer rivalry for nearly two decades. 

Carli Lloyd Needs To Follow Tom Brady And Unretire So She Stops Shit-Talking Her Former Teammates

This week, Tom Brady decided to end his one-month retirement and return to the NFL. Carli Lloyd should do the same, just so she finds something else to put her energy into besides sticking her foot in her mouth. 

Carli Lloyd ended an illustrious career last fall, hanging up her cleats after winning two Women’s World Cups, two Olympic gold medals and FIFA World Player of the Year in 2015. She retired as the second-most capped USWNT player and in the top five in goals and assists in USWNT history.

Con el boleto al Mundial de Costa Rica en el bolsillo, la Selección de México Femenil Sub 20 soñaba con dar la sorpresa y batir a Estados Unidos en la final del premundial de la Concacaf. 

El deseo, sin embargo, duró apenas dos minutos con ocho segundos. Un error tremendo en la salida de la arquera Celeste Espino fue aprovechado por Michelle Cooper, la goleadora y mejor jugadora del torneo, para darle ventaja de camerino al USWNT.
