No es una sorpresa decir que el potencial de Estados Unidos está en su delantera. Talento y fama han engrandecido a dos baluartes como Abby Wambach y Alex Morgan. La misma Sydney Leroux, pese a su juventud, viene ganándose muy lentamente un lugar.
La llegada de Tom Sermanni al banquillo estadounidense, desde su anuncio, dejaba entrever una posible inclusión de nuevos nombres a la selección número uno del mundo, porque hay que decirlo, el gran talento de Estados Unidos es bastante, pero también muy veterano.
If the recent Sounders match again Montreal has you down, you could clear your palate with a
nice afternoon Sounders Women match. The national team players are still away in Sweden warming up
for the World Cup, and just beat the Swedish team 3-1 thanks in part to an Alex Morgan goal. Morgan
is now on a long-term goals per game pace that is rivaled in team history only by Mia Hamm.
Emile Heskey became an instant hero as he scored a opportunist volley on his Newcastle Jets debut as they beat Del Piero's Sydney 3-2 at the week-end. Incidently it's Heskey's first pro-goal in 419 days.
Have Sydney unearthed a gem? And why has it taken so long to develop and give this guy a run.
A few more games could have meant a few more points with Joel on the team. But no Vitaslav and his
coaching team were too cautious, too predictable, too scared throughout the season to go for youth
The University of Mary Washington women's soccer team used three goals and three assists from
freshmen in a 3-0 win over Guilford College on Sunday at the Battleground. The Eagles improve to
4-0 on the season.
The Eagles opened the scoring at 19:18, when freshman Michelle Gibbons scored on a Sydney Cook
Somehow the Rapids won a game they should have lost, easily. Outplayed most of the match and down
to 10 men for the last third of the game Colorado managed to hang on for a 2-1 win. The first half
was ugly soccer from the first whistle. Literally. Within the first minute Drew Moor tripped an
onrushing Mwanga at the top of the box and should have had a foul called and a card issued.
Después de varios grandes partidos y lucha entre gigantes, se han definido a las cuatro
escuadras que jugarán las semifinales, y con ellos, lucharán por hacerse de una medalla para su
delegación y país.
El primer partido fue entre Suecia y Francia, la revancha de aquél partido por el tercer lugar
del Mundial de Alemania en que las suecas se quedaron con la medalla de bronce venciéndolas por
Manchester, here we come. On Friday afternoon at St. James' Park in Newcastle the U.S. Women's
National Team earned a spot in the Olympic semifinals with a 2-0 win over New Zealand. There were
some pretty great moments in the hard-fought game and full marks to the Kiwis for some excellent
play and their traditional fighting spirit.
Stop casting a spell on the WNT!
Part of the fun of visiting Alnwick Castle, and something that has made it a major tourist
attraction, is the fact that scenes from two Harry Potter films were filmed there. One of those
included a famed Quidditch scene. So of course the U.S.
[Sounders Women - Good luck in London. from Highart Reel on Vimeo.]
The Sounders Women had four of the best players in the world suit up in rave green jerseys this
Spring. They are heading off to London soon and we wanted to wish them well as they take sight on
their 4th gold medal.
Today was the 34th birthday of veteran U.S. defender Heather Mitts. Seems like just yesterday she
was that fresh-faced kid of out Florida via Cincinnati trying to earn her way onto the U.S. WNT,
and now she is preparing for her third Olympics (she's still fresh-faced, BTW).
It is tradition that if it is someone's birthday, at the end of U.
Tonight the Sounders Women play their first competitive match of the season at Starfire after
picking up a road win against Vancouver in their opener. With the team is the full contingent of
national team players, who've rushed back from a friendly with China to take part in the home
This is the middle match in great stretch for Starfire, with the senior Sounders winning the US
Open Cup match last night, the Sounders Women kicking off tonight, and the Reserves kick off
tomorrow with the potential of a Steve Zakuani sighting.
Everyone who has seen Sydney Leroux play knows she's not afraid of anything on the field. But
lately she's taken to pulling on the GK gloves for a few minutes after a training here or there and
taking some shots from WNT players. And trust us, for a forward, that is very brave.
We're not sure if Syd is going for that emergency goalkeeper position, but we do know she was an
excellent Little League baseball player so she should be able to catch pretty well.
Keelin Winters manages to just get a foot to the ball as Alex Morgan shoots
The U.S. team had just one training today, and as some ominous clouds rolled in during the
practice, it seemed for a moment like it might be a damp and windy session, but the rain quickly
passed and the team had another sharp practice that included a 30-minute full-field scrimmage (that
featured some stoppages to work on set plays) at the end.
After the domestic Women's Professional Soccer league folded, Carrasco started lobbying for
Morgan to come to Seattle and play for the Sounders Women. They could be together, he said, and
wear the same jerseys. They could watch each other's games.
If you were committed enough to be up at 3:30 this morning to watch the US Women play Japan on
ESPN, you got to see some impressive play from the Sounders Women. Japan controlled the game
throughout with slick passing reminiscent of Barcelona's tiki-taka. The US back line struggled to
clear the ball and to move the ball into the midfield under intense forward pressure from the
Japanese players, and the Nats were rarely able to possess the ball in the offensive end.
So, you probably know about Baby Horse, the nickname given to U.S. forward Alex Morgan by her
teammates in 2011 that seems to have caught on with the fans.
We think we might have another for you. You see, young U.S. forward Sydney Leroux is our very own
Of course, you probably have seen the viral video of what is perhaps nature's toughest animal and
aware that LSU defensive back Tyrone Mathieu, who was a finalist for the Heisman Trophy, also took
on the monkiker during the last college football season.
Seattle Sounders ha logrado formar un equipo de lujo, fichando a varias jugadoras
internacionales como Alex Morgan, Hope Solo, Sydney Leroux y ahora la delantera del tri femenil
Vero, quién ya tuvo experiencia profesional con St. Louis Athletica en Women's Professional
Soccer, después de tener una destacada participación con la Universidad de Washington, se une a
Sounders Women para la próxima temporada.
Abby Wambach and Sydney Leroux scored second half goals to lead the United States to a 2-1
victory over Norway during the second match day of the Algarve Cup tournament on Friday at Estádio
Municipal in Lagos, Portugal.
After the a scoreless first half, the Americans came to life in the second frame when Wambach
ripped a shot from 16-yards in the 53rd minute.

A sense of history is always relative, and in Australian sport any team, venue or personality
that has been around for more than a couple of decades is venerated as a hallowed asset to society.
Australia played a rugby international against Wales at the Sydney Football Stadium in mid-June, a
venue that had not seen international competition featuring the Wallabies since 1998.
Marcos Rojas the young Kiwi flyer showed signs of greatness in NZ - at Victory less so as Managers
struggled to get the best out of him. You can bet Ange will and won't it be great to see the energy
and talent of Rojas go to another level. Ange likes them running and young and it will be
fascinating to see if he has a spot for our Harry.
There was nothing more irritating than those Sydney twats chanting "Two nil and you fucked it up!"
following the 2-2 draw on Australia Day. Okay, maybe their "Happy Republic of Sydney Day" banner
was even worse, but the point is its time for some payback. Before I get to the squad news I just
