There are more women’s football stars in the world than ever before, but it’s a long way from being the era when women’s soccer was the most popular sport in the United States.
In fact, the last time the U.S. men’s team played in a World Cup, in 2002, the women’s national team only scored one goal in the quarterfinals.
But that was a close call.
Now, we’re looking at a different scenario in the near future, as the U-23 women’s side is preparing for its first major tournament.
The Women’s National Team is expected to play in the Women, World and Under-23 Championship in the Czech Republic, a tournament that takes place over the next four weeks.
In the U23s inaugural tournament, the team came out strong in a 3-0 victory over Czechs defending champions, Ljubljana, who had already lost three of their previous four games.
The U-20s also came out on top, defeating the defending champions 5-1 in a rematch in Prague.
The women’s program, however, is looking ahead to this tournament.
It is expected that at least one of the U17s, U18s, and U21s will make the World Cup roster, while the U20s, a group of seniors, is also expected to participate in the tournament.
There are still a lot of holes to fill in the women in women’s division.
There were only two games against defending champions Russia this year, and the two victories were both by just one goal.
Still, the U16s and U18 are expected to be one of those teams that make it to the quarterfinal round.
The Under-18s and Under/Junior Women’s Teams are also expected make the quarter-finals, while a handful of the Under-16s, Under-17s and junior women are expected participate in either the U19 or U20 World Cups.
The top three U-17 and Under teams in the nation, according to the UABA, will compete for a spot in the 2017 CONCACAF U-16 Championship.
There is still a long road ahead for the U18, U19 and Under women, but they’re getting better and better every day.
There’s no reason to expect the team to drop off any time soon.
“It’s a new era, a new set of expectations,” UABC senior midfielder, Alex Mowbray, told me.
“We’re ready to step it up and go out and perform and play our best every day.”
There’s plenty of time for the top U-18 teams to take advantage of their position as the national champions and take down the competition for the next couple of years.
“Every time we win a game, we know it’s going to mean something to the country,” Mowbridays senior goalkeeper, Jadyn Smith, said.
“If we win two games we know the team is playing well and we can build off that.”
