Women’s World Football Show welcomes Republic of Ireland’s Stephanie Roche! One of the most popular strikers in the women’s game today, Stephanie tells of her remarkable journey from the Dublin suburbs to the Lone Star State of Texas.
The formidable forward gives us insight on the Irish team, what she thinks of the NWSL, and her thoughts on building a women’s league in Ireland.
If all you know of Stephanie is from a certain viral video, then you only know a fraction about this amazing footballer!
