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.

Here’s How The Soccer World Is Reacting To Derek Chauvin Verdict

Tobin Heath Injury Latest: USWNT Forward Ruled Out For Rest Of Season

USWNT Looked Good Beating France, But That Audio Delay On ESPN Was Awful

ESPN announcers Julie Foudy and Sebastian Salazar talked a lot about the fact the pitch-side mics were clearly picking up everything USWNT coach Vlatko Andonovski was saying during his team’s friendly against France on Tuesday.
