Some observations from watching the group stage:
- Super cool hair, including lots punky short styles, hyper long hair, and multi color dreads.
- Many of the players play for division 1 universities in the U.S. Are U.S. universities women’s soccers’ youth league?
- Same sex couples are apparently common enough in women’s soccer that when the color commentary mentioned that one of the players had changed her last name and moved to Switzerland, where her partner works, it was done in the same tone of voice that any color commentary would be done in during a slow stretch of the game. Totally just part of giving us insight into where the player is now playing, no mention even of the player taking her wife’s name as unusual at all. Just par for the course.
