USWNT Clinches Spot in Round of 16

Nigeria did not make it easy. As much as the refs were trying to keep Nigeria in it via phantom offside calls and missed penalties, the USWNT found a way through via an excellent goal from none other than legend and future hall-of-famer, Abby Wambach. Check it below:

The USWNT will continue the tournament against the third place finisher from Group B/E/F, with the opponent to be determined after tomorrow’s final Group Stage matches. The Round of 16 contest will take place June 22 at 8 p.m. ET at Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton.

What Do You Think Of The New USWNT World Cup Kits?

I can’t say I hate the black and white. It is a clean and simple look which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. However, the lack of any red or blue doesn’t seem right. In fact it seems downright Un-American. The logo at least should have blue or red. I find it weird that the only “color” on this kit are the neon socks. Since when is neon associated with the United States? Instead of being neon the socks should be red and/or blue. If that were the case then I would be satisfied with this kit.
