Happy Wednesday, everyone. Some interesting stories from yesterday, so let’s get into it all.
I’m the proud owner of a USL Championship team. My hometown team, Detroit City FC, will leave the NISA for the USL Championship. Their debut will be in March.
We have 4 Washington Spirit players on the USWNT roster that will head Down Under to take on Australia in 2 friendlies later this month: Andi Sullivan, Emily Sonnet, Ashley Hatch, and Ashley Sanchez. Trinity Rodman was also called into camp by USWNT head coach Vlatko Andonovski, but she officially opted out of the roster.
Best wishes to NYCFC’s Keaton Parks, who will miss the rest of the season with a blood clot in his leg.
Ahead of the USMNT’s World Cup qualifying match against Mexico on Friday, Ricardo Pepi talks about his decision to represent the USA over El Tri.
The Portland Thorns have a new head coach, with Rhian Wilkinson taking over after the end of this season.
Congrats to Marcus Rashford of Manchester United, who received a MBE for his school meal campaign last year that kept every single child in the United Kingdom fed during the height of the pandemic last year. It’s truly well deserved.
Before we go, the legend Formiga will play her last match for Brazil this month against India, the end of an incredible career. We’ll miss watching her on the field.

And finally, the class picture for the 2021 D.C. United team. Thanks for a fun season, guys. We have some room to grow, but the future looks bright under Hernan Losada.
Enjoy the day, everyone!
