Women’s World Football Show, Episode 50 features an exclusive interview with Sheffield Ladies FC head coach Helen Mitchell; and a Women’s World Cup report with Alana “AJ” Johnson.
After 16 long years, Team USA brings home the Women’s World Cup. Women’s World Football Show reviews the tournament and takes a look at many of the players who will go down as champions, regardless if they lifted a trophy or not.
We take a look at England’s heartbreaking loss to Japan and USA’s stunning victory over No. 1 ranked Germany. Despite the disappointing result, the Lionesses have emerged as England’s heroes. On the other hand, as the favorites, Germany will head home with a lot of unanswered questions. How will this effect the current lineup and impending coaching change? We take a hard look at the future of both teams.
Our roving reporter, Alana “AJ” Johnson joins us live from Vancouver. She was there to witness the USA’s massive victory over Japan in the milestone match. AJ gives us her first-hand insight on the match, the USA team and tries to describe the wild atmosphere at BC Place.
