On this week’s Women’s World Football Show, we visit with Glasgow City FC and Northern Ireland Women’s National Team defender Julie Nelson. Julie shares her thoughts on Glasgow City winning the Scottish League trophy, the growth of women’s football in the British Isles and her latest role as mentor and role model.
Then across the pond, we chat with NWSL Champions past and present. From the 2013 Portland Thorns, Allie Long talks about training with the US Women’s National Team and those rabid Portland supporters. Then, the interview we’ve all been waiting for – 2014 NWSL champion and US Women’s National Team striker Amy Rodriguez talks about her winning season on and off the pitch.
Keeping with our ‘Champions’ theme, we break down the Champions League, give an update on Women’s World Cup qualifiers and the upcoming tournament in Brazil.
Class is in session, as we learn about the college game from our “Postgame Gator” Alana Johnson and listen in on her interview with Vanderbilt defender Taylor Richardson.
Plus Barry, Schmidt-Bits and… The Kardashians? Wait… we’re talking champs not chumps!
