    @latina-soccer-perspective I am looking forward to following your assessments of the 2019 Women’s World Cup and other events. I agree that constructive criticism is valuable to develop and improve the game.

    Will you be following the Algarve Cup? Many of the World Cup 2019 competing teams will be playing there.

    • Good point! I will certainly follow the Algarve Cup and the She Believes tournament as both competitions provide some insight as to the state of leading the teams that will be attending the FIFA World Cup.

  2. I will be following closely the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup and I will be posting my comments. I intend to focus on three areas that have proven to be problematic for women’s soccer: Technical skills, clarity in the last third, and excessive physical play.

    If women’s soccer is to reach the masses and became a viable and vibrant alternative in the world of sports entertainment and, thus, an interesting option for sustainable and committed investment by private companies, it must embrace the Beautiful Game in its fullest. I get excited when soccer is played in an incisive, direct, and purposeful fashion that usually result in a bounty of goals. I was delighted to watch the young Spanish team that was crowned as the 2018 Champions of the FIFA U17, I was inspired by the directness and productivity of the current champions of the NWSL, North Carolina Courage; and I was blown away by the style of play of the 2017 UEFA Champions, The Netherlands. The style of play of these three teams remind us that women’s soccer could be a persuasive and exciting proposition.

    However, I am afraid that they are the exception.

    Hence, my role in this fora will be a critical yet constructive one. I do not intend to follow the crow and pat our backs and say great job we have a seventh edition of the World Cup for Women! No, that would not be my role. It is time to start asking questions about how the game is played by women, whether it is pleasing on the eye. in sum, it is time to ask whether it embraces the tenets of the Beautiful Game. Only after honest assessment will we find the right answers and thus design the right programs to educate young girls in the greatest game.

    Stay tuned.
