What We're Reading in Women's Soccer This Week: Week 5
First and foremost, I would like to start off this column with this from the Black players of the NWSL
Stephanie Yang talks about current Utah Royals owner Dell Loy Hansen and his behavior that's recently come to light. Even though he's agreed to sell the team(s), Yang reminds us there's no place for people like this in our league.
Allison Cary gives us more insight on Nigeria's women's league. Anyone who's watched the last two World Cups has to admit that Nigeria has really glowed up and been a bright spot in otherwise pretty predictable tournaments. Here's your chance to check out the league.
Eugene Rupinski recaps week 2 of the Liga MX Femenil. So far the league has been able to have regular games as normal, providing plenty of entertainment for Mexican (and some American) fans.
Ameé Ruszkai writes about the Champions League final between French powerhouse Olympique Lyonnais and Germany's powerhouse Wolfsburg. Both teams going into this match were about evenly matched, even if Wolfsburg looked a little shaky in their semifinal. I won't spoil for you who won.
Yang writes about the activism in the WNBA and how far behind the curve the NWSL is when it comes to being united in social justice reform.
And just making it under the wire, Lucas Muller publishes an explosive piece on the toxic and sexist culture that has festered under the leadership of Dell Loy Hansen. I won't say too much more other than that...it's pretty bad.
And that's what you missed on Glee!
