Man City Pass Reading Test

Man City Pass Reading Test

It took a fortuitous late goal from Player of the Match Lucy Bronze to finally break the deadlock – despite Reading’s dogged resistance – and send MANCHESTER CITY through to quarter finals of the FA Cup.

On a cold, wet, miserable afternoon when one or two players looked like they’d rather be somewhere else, Bronze brings a must-win mentality into every game and that’s what makes her an automatic choice on any team sheet.

It’s not that City didn’t have plenty of chances to put this tie to bed much earlier – but a combination of sloppy finishing and brilliant goalkeeping by Mary Earps kept the score even – and the City faithful on the edge of their seats – until the breakthrough came seven minutes from time when – with an uncharacteristic error of misjudgement – Earps allowed Bronze’s lobbed effort from the edge of the box to sneak in under the crossbar.

Women’s football is a global village: Recent news about women’s football around the world

Women's football is a global village: recent news about women's football around the world

Women’s football is a global village: recent news about women’s football around the world

Whoever thought we would not experience great emotions in women’s football in 2017 was wrong.

We started the year with the announcements of big name player transfers, creations of new leagues and the strengthening of others, as well as the promise of great friendly matches at both club and international level.

Who, like me, can not wait for the matches of the UWCL, NWSL, Frauen Bundesliga, Dammalsvenskan, The FA WSL, D1 Féminine, Algarve Cup, 2017 SheBelieves Cup and for all other leagues and tournaments matches around the world? Raise your hand!

Women’s football has become increasingly global. The United States is no longer alone at the top, more and more nations are increasing the investments in women’s football and others that neither had a women’s football history, begin to develop their first female leagues. The women’s football world is becoming a global village. Of course it has much to do yet. Read the rest of this entry →

We need to talk about The Best FIFA Women’s Player Award

No, it is not April 1st. Carli Lloyd just won the The Best FIFA Women’s Player Award for 2016. It was already a huge surprise not to see Ada Hegerberg, UEFA Best Women’s Player in Europe Award for 2015/16, included in the ten original candidates, imagine what was, for us, who follow women’s soccer, to watch Carli Lloyd, who is a great player and that I admire deeply, to win the award over the Bayern Munich player, Melanie Behringer.

My 10 finalists for Best Women’s Player in 2016

The Best FIFA Football Awards 2016 is approaching so I decided to share with you my 10 finalists for Best Women’s Player in 2016.

Since the defeat of Inka Grings in 2009, we have not seen such a controversial FIFA Women’s Player list such as the current one, which has left out the best European player of the season.

I will not order the players, except the number one, the best of the year, which all female football lovers know, that was Ada Hegerberg, this season. So hope you like it and share your opinion!

Brazil on the right path

November 3, 2016 in Blogs, News

Brazil on the right path.

The last couple of years were very disappointing for the Brazilian women’s football fans.

This is because, despite the large investment in the women’s team, as the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) invested more than ever before, the team had a poor performance in the main tournaments, well below what was expected of them, having been eliminated in the Round of 16 at the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup and in the Quarter-finals in the Olympic Games in Rio, where the team was one of the favourites, since Brazil was the host country.

However, this week might be a turning point in the Brazilian women’s football future. The CBF, aiming to follow the global tendency to empower women in football, decided to dismiss Vadão, the current coach with all his coaching staff, that were composed only by men, and to employ a female coach, for the first time in Brazilian history, to lead the senior Brazilian women’s team.

Cushing wants ‘to grow’ Man City Women

Manchester City Women’s manager Nick Cushing may have won the club’s first Women’s Super League 1 title but his determination is entertaining thousands more spectators.

Women’s football may be seen as a growing sport along the likes of futsal but it remains to challenge the increase of the regular attendance figures.

On Sunday, over 4,000 turned up to witness Chelsea Ladies lose their crown to an undefeated Man City at the Academy Stadium, down the road from the Etihad. Read the rest of this entry →
