These are the smartest players in the world. They will destroy you. Watching them move the ball is better than poetry.
And we hung out with them on Wednesday.
Literally. Even though the official roster for the United States Women’s National Soccer Team has just recently been announced, we were lucky enough to host a friendly with Japan at the Cary soccer park, right here in town – and we were 15 feet from the field! And after they shredded on the field for an hour and a half, they came over to hang out with their fans and sign autographs. The US Women’s National Soccer Team been doing this for decades. They are truly amazing people.
Don’t miss this year’s FIFA Women’s World Cup, starting in Germany on June 26th. 16 teams battle it out towards the final match on July 17.
Here’s Amy Rodriguez (who scored the first goal of the 2-0 victory) and Abby Wambach (my personal hero) signing Wren and Reiley’s jerseys. Holy crap.
