This most recent FIFA Women’s World Cup was a pivotal one for the sport. Not only was it the tournament where VAR made it’s auspicious debut, and where Megan Rapinoe, one of the games most colorful players, reached the pinnacle of her storied career, but it was the tournament that proved that European countries are ready to watch Women’s international soccer on the tele and in person. This tournament will likely be remembered for the each of those, and other factors as well. But now that it’s all over here’s what stood out in my eyes.
And Another Thing…As Women’s Soccer Enters A New Era, The USWNT Still Bears The Standard. On the pitch the USWNT continue to set the standard. As the European squads and Australia try to rise to their level on the pitch the USWNT continues to fight for women everywhere, despite having by far the best deals of women anywhere on this planet. It makes what they do all the more impressive.
