Of football, the World Cup and Club Manager 2019

Pomp, razzmatazz and crazed fanfare; colourful scenes have been painted across all eleven host cities, none more so than Moscow, ahead of the commencement of the 2018 FIFA World Cup. The 32 participating nations from five different confederations have already set camp across the world’s largest nation, ahead of what is quite rightly the biggest football fiesta on the planet.

No single nation ever heads to the World Cup with the hope of getting knocked out, which is why all countries taking part will unequivocally launch audacious bids for the much coveted prize; this being done with unwavering confidence and unflappable assurance, even in the case of teams that don’t stand a realistic chance of making it beyond the group stages.

Leanne Ross has lifted the SSE Scottish Women’s Cup six times with Glasgow City - now she wants it back again.

Leanne Ross has lifted the SSE Scottish Women’s Cup six times with Glasgow City – now she wants it back again.

The City skipper curled in a free-kick and laid on the second for Abbi Grant as the eight-time champions cruised past Forfar Farmington 3-0 in the second round.

Ross – a stalwart of the game north of the border as the holder of 133 Scotland caps – is desperate to regain a trophy they last won in 2015.

“The SSE Scottish Women’s Cup is really important for us, to try to and get our hands back on that silverware,” said the 36-year-old, beaten finalist in 2016 and 2017 at the hands of Hibernian.

“It doesn’t matter who we get in the next round. It’ll be the same objective, just keeping our levels of performance high. Read the rest of this entry →

Rapinoe and Heath score as USA completes China PR sweep with 2-1 win in front of 12,335 fans.

USA Women’s National Team used a first-half headed goal from Megan Rapinoe and responded quickly with a Tobin Heath game-winner after China PR had equalized in the second half to record a 2-1 win.

Press, who got her first start of 2018 and had both assists, became the 37 th female player in U.S. history to earn 100 caps.

The victory gave the USA a two-game sweep of China who have already qualified for the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup. China came out a bit more aggressively than it did on June 7 in Sandy, Utah, pressing the USA higher up the field, but still did well to stay compact in the defensive half while challenging the USA to find a way through. The USA out-shot China 16-9, but had to work very hard to create dangerous chances. Read the rest of this entry →

Chelcee Grimes Interview on Women’s Soccer United

Chelcee Grimes: “The never die attitude is a mental trait you need for both music AND football”

Chelcee Grimes is making headlines both on and off the pitch with success as a professional footballer playing for London based club, Fulham FC and a singer/songwriter.

Chelcee’s story is one of true determination that sets a wonderful example of why you should never give up on your dreams. She showed tremendous character to bounce back from being dropped by her record label in 2012, remained positive and focused on her goals – she is now re-signed and releasing her debut single… Whilst continuing with her love of playing football!

Grimes has emerged as one of the UK’s exciting talents and has already written music for Kylie, Olly Murs and Dua Lipa to name just a few!

Chelcee Grimes releases her debut single ‘Just Like That’ via RCA on 8 June 2018, written in an intense 10 minute burst of creativity resulting in a swaggering and suggestive pop gem.

We were very excited to get the opportunity to catch up with Chelcee for an exclusive interview on Women’s Soccer United, in which the 25 year old shares her experiences so far, thoughts on the women’s game and her future ambitions. Read the rest of this entry →
