Soccer has come a long way since it was first introduced in the States. The men’s team has recently beat big powerhouses such as Germany and Netherlands at their home turf. More and more boys and girls are taking to the sport instead of the traditional ones. Nonetheless it is the US Women’s National Soccer Team that has earned the biggest accomplishments in the sport for the US. Ranked number 1 in the world from 2008 to 2014 until the Germans took the honor. USWNT has won the women’s World Cup twice in 1991 and 1999 and are looking for their third star. Runners up in the last edition since the final match was a 2-2 draw that had to go to penalty shootouts, where they lost to the Japanese squad. They have an experienced squad but there is an outside issue that may end up interfering with the team mental health and concentration.
Canada is the host of this year’s women’s World Cup. The US goalie is one of their best players and was critical to their win against Australia in their opening match. Unfortunately Hope Solo was involved in a major domestic violence case that has gone back and forward and has raised an important question. Should she be allowed to play, after all the repercussions other athletes suffer due to domestic violence issues? It is something that the current US head coach Jill Ellis is willing to oversee as well as Sunil Gulati, president of the United States Soccer Federation. How much will this affect the team remains to be seen, although the squad suffered a 0-0 draw on their second match against the Swedish team. Meghan Klingenberg actually saved the team with a goal line header that sent a sure goal to the crossbar instead. Figure and veteran Abby Wambach blames the artificial turf for the lack of goals but only the future will say if that was the case.
