This week at practice your coach is probably going to make a new drill and compare it to a play made by Argentina or the US during their game at the SheBelieves Cup. They are probably going to make you huddle up and then ask who watched the game and specific questions about it as well. The only thing worse than being stood up by your least favorite teammate is your coach getting so fed up that nobody knows anything about the game that they put you on the line. So here is the run down of the USWNT game Tuesday:
This will be you at practice if you don’t read this blog
Let’s start with this- How many goals did we score in the first half ONLY??:
AND WHAT ARE WE??? SHEBELIEVES CUP 2021 CHAMPIONS!!!
TOP THREE “OH YIKES” MOMENTS AND REACTIONS:
- Argentina’s goalkeeper being obliterated and definitely exhausted during the whole ninety minutes.
I just know poor Solana Pereyra was tired, annoyed, and ready to go home. We showed no mercy whatsoever. SIX GOALS, SIX.
- Becky Sauerbrunn and Jaelin Howell headbutting each other while going up for a header.
Saurbrunn walked off the field in pain after this at 65 minutes in, we are wishing for a speedy recovery.
- Our QUEEN Rose Lavelle kicked the ball way over the goal 13 minutes in and gave us and the rest of the world a frown on camera.
ALTHOUGH- she is our 2021 SheBelieves Cup MVP!!!!- so it’s okay Lavelle: We all kick the ball over the net sometimes.
Megan Rapinoe and Carli Lloyd were on teammate FIRE: This is 100% something your coach will mention. Lloyd passed to Rapinoe 25 minutes in for a US goal. Only MINUTES later, Rapinoe passes right back to Lloyd who hit the ball off of the left post. This proves the point of selflessness and teamwork always work out for the best.
I know you have all played with a girl who only cared about scoring for herself. Next time she tries to pull that again, let her know that's not how the pros do it.
I wouldn’t be surprised if your coach runs a give and go drill or a drill that passes to the corner of the box with a one vs. one to the keeper. Best thing to do is: be as prepared as possible. Coaches are crazy and they’re crazy for the USWNT.
Congratulations to Alex Morgan for scoring her first goal after giving birth to little Charlie!! So proud of her and excited to have a miniature world champ around!!
There was so much intensity and communication by our USWNT girls tonight. Goals by Alex Morgan, Christen Press, Kristie Mewis, Carli Lloyd, Megan Rapinoe (2). Shutout by Jane Campell- third shutout in a row during the SheBelieves tournament. I'm sure we cannot wait for Catarina Macario to return from France so we can watch her crazy insane talent. Oh, and in case anybody forget too: WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS
