New USWNT Roster Spicy Enough To Dominate Conversation At Thanksgiving Table

USWNT manager Vlatko Andonovski has announced his squad for the Nov. 27 friendly against the Netherlands, and — as always given the extremely competitive nature of forcing your way into this team — the exclusions are probably more notable than the inclusions.  

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.

Why You Should Watch Spain’s Women’s League

Spain’s LaLiga has some of the biggest names in football like Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Sergio Ramos. But Spain’s other league you may not be watching is certainly worth your time. 

The Primera Division is Spain’s highest level of competition for women’s football. It consists of 18 teams who all compete for the league title, as well as for two spots in the UEFA Women’s Champion League. 

Alex Morgan (Finally) Makes Her Tottenham Debut

It seems like we’ve been waiting forever for this moment, but it finally came Saturday. No, I don’t mean the U.S. presidential election was called; I mean the Alex Morgan Tottenham debut.

Sam Mewis And Newcastle Combine To Ruin Everton’s Sunday Across The Board

MLS Club Has Reportedly Reached Out To Jill Ellis To Become Next Head Coach

Former U.S. women's national soccer team coach Jill Ellis talked informally with D.C. United last week about the club's head-coaching vacancy, the Washington Post reported Thursday.

According to the newspaper, Ellis is believed to be the first woman ever viewed as a candidate to become the head coach of a Major League Soccer team. It's an idea The18 floated last year.

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.
