The World Cup is here!!!!
Sorry, yes, I know you know this. But I’m just so darn excited and we haven’t spoken since the tournament started.
And!! The USWNT play today!!!
Let’s get to your Freedom Kicks!
Watch for GOALS, amirite
Pretty unfortunate for the USMNT to play a game while the USWNT are in a tournament tbh. THANK U, NEXT.
(You know I love the USMNT but omg they make it so hard.)
D.C. United moved from 11th place up to 8th. Take that as you will.
Y’all, please note: “Women’s professional soccer players in Brazil still don’t earn a living wage. Top players for the men’s league can make upwards of $125,000 per month, while women have yet to surpass $500.”
Remember how there were a ton of penalties at last summer’s World Cup? Samesies this summer.
EVERYONE PLZ TAKE A MOMENT TO APPRECIATE CHRISTINE SINCLAIR. THX.
Speaking of megastars, let’s check in on Abby Wambach.
All right, that’s the end of your mainly-a-World-Cup-appreciation-post Freedom Kicks. To the comments!
