Man, Brazil is really roughing up the youngsters today.
Amber Brooks playing with that huge cut on her face. Girl’s a champ.
Anonymous asked: Mewis is not playing left back. They are playing a 3-5-2.
I hope they do a 3-5-2, but the picture U.S. Soccer just posted on their Facebook page shows that hey’re gonna play a 4-4-2:
And no Kriegs? Not sure how I feel about this.
Pia Sundhage - “The thing with Carli Lloyd is we didn’t have her in the starting lineup before the Olympics. She has proven that I was wrong. Today, I think she was one of the best players.”
Hope Solo - “It’s not just the skill on the ball and the physical aspect of the game, but she’s got what it takes. It doesn’t matter what she goes through. She’s mentally strong and that’s what I admire most about Carli. Nobody can affect her play, not being benched, she’ll come back on the field and make plays. She’s just a winner. She’s a veteran on this team and she’ll find a way to win.”
OLD school (2002), Wambach and Mitts.
All the best, Heather.
Thanks for all the greatness you’ve helped bring to this team, Mittsy! You’ll be missed!
Hope & Jill, Get Well Soon
I think that blurry blob on the left is Jacqui Melksham moving out of the frame. The top brownish part would be her hair and the blue is the same color blue the refs were wearing.
