Happy Thursday, everyone. Thanks to Ben for doing the switcheroo for me once again as I was in NYC for the start of college basketball until super late Tuesday night/stupid early Wednesday morning. Now, I’m here in Columbus where the United States Women’s National Team play Sweden tonight (7:30pm, FS1/TUDN). Until then, recap the news from yesterday.
Alex Morgan is going to attempt to come back in time for the 2020 Olympics, which are 3 months after she’s scheduled to give birth. She a damn champion for just the attempt, but whether she makes it back in time, I’m wishing for a healthy new addition for her above all.
Starting goalkeeper Ederson was injured yesterday for Manchester City in their Champions League match, so he had to be subbed off at halftime. His replacement, Claudio Bravo, was soon sent off with a red card, so defender Kyle Walker had to become the 3rd string goalkeeper. He got a save and helped City preserve the draw against Atalanta.
Megan Rapinoe speaks on how Budweiser has helped make the NWSL better since it took over as a league sponsor after the 2019 Women’s World Cup.
There will be a lot of tough decisions made for the USWNT should they qualify for the Olympics. Who do you think makes the roster?
A club in Tunisia has a debt of at least $6 million, so fans of the club took to donating $450,000 in one day to help the club keep operations afloat and get them on the path to solvency.
Our Cake or Death series is on and poppin, and yesterday was Wayne Rooney’s turn for the treatment. What say you?
Finally, could Ulises Segura and Emmanuel Boateng be on the move?
Rumblings surrounding #DCU: I’m told the club is open to moving MF Ulises Segura, who, at the moment, is on nat’l team duty w/Costa Rica. Club is also said to be shopping MF Ema Boateng, picked up from the #LAGalaxy just a few months ago. Will be an interesting couple months.— Pablo Maurer (@MLSist) November 6, 2019
