Girl Power

Today was the first game for the United States Women’s Soccer team Victory Tour with an 8-0 win over Costa Rica at Heinz Field.   In front of record-breaking crowd of 44,028 the U.S dominated an over matched Costa Rica team.  Now they have 9 other games on this tour and have to get the team ready for The 2016 Summer Olympics.    The Olympic roster is 18 players there a lot of players who have to show Head Coach Jill Ellis they belong on the squad.   One of the example of this is the backup goaltender and who can come in for Hope Solo. For players like Alex Morgan and Kristen Press who didn’t play a lot in the World Cup both have to show they can be counted on for the Olympics next summer.  Another question is will Abby Wambach play for the team next summer and the coaching staff has to have some serious talks with some players.
