Here’s a great article about Pia from Sports Illustrated that someone just posted on BigSoccer. (Thanks!) And here’s another from ESPN’s Soccernet. What a breath of fresh air … psychologically, tactically. Hallelujah! (No wonder Sweden put her on a stamp!)
And here’s a blurb about Brittany Taylor a Washingtonville, NY native (and U Conn player) who’s been called up for the February Camp. Guess we’ll be getting the official list soon, since camp starts 2/1 … and the USWNT gets ready to head to Portugal for the Algarve Cup!
… and Pia has named Jillian Ellis as an assistant for the USWNT. Seems a great move, as Ellis was widely considered a top candidate for the job that Pia ultimately (and happily) landed. Meanwhile, Tony DiCicco will take over the U-20’s (Jillian’s former gig for USSF).
