Greetings from Auckland! I write this after a 47 hour trip around the world to get to Wellington in time for the USWNT match against Netherlands last night (in America). DC-BWI-LAX-SYD-AKL-WLG made for a whirlwind 3 day trip to get to the Women’s World Cup. Let’s start there!
Lindsey Horan’s 2nd half header salvages a draw against the Dutch for the USWNT. Next up, they have to win against Portugal to win Group E and move onto the Round of 16 in Sydney.
$776M is apparently not enough for Kylian Mbappé to even meet with Al Hilal about a potential transfer. Real Madrid on deck?
Several players discuss what it’s like to play with and against Lionel Messi.
Sadio Mané may be the next player to join the Saudi Pro League, as he is in talks with Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al Nassr.
Jude Bellingham is showing that he could be the biggest transfer of the summer as he scores in a Real Madrid win over Manchester United.
I’m off to rest…enjoy the day y’all!
