Happy Thursday everyone. I’ve been up since 2:30am watching the first two matches of the Women’s World Cup, so let’s start right there!
New Zealand wins its first World Cup match ever – men or women – when they stun Norway 1-0 in the opener of the Women’s World Cup. A tremendous moment for the team.
Everyone associated with the teams in the World Cup appear to be okay after a shooting in Auckland’s CBD claims 2 lives, plus the gunman.
Australia wins their opener 1-0, but captain Sam Kerr will miss the first two matches of the tournament with a calf injury.
It was a magical night at Audi Field last night for the 2023 MLS All-Star Game, but not on the scoreboard for the league. Arsenal smokes the All-Stars 5-0 in the match.
Nashville SC apparently received a huge $7 million bid from a Qatari club for Hany Mukhtar, but it was rejected. The reigning MLS MVP stays in the league.
Lionel Messi’s arrival in MLS is going to mean a ton of changes for the league and everyone who is associated with it.
That’s it for now…time to grab some coffee.
