Sundhage Back

So Pia is back – it’s official. A four year contract.  Great news for US soccer.

In other good soccer news, Puma has signed on as a founding partner of the WPS.

It’s Jane Austin’s birthday … and my internet connection sucks this morning!  But here’s a nice piece by Andrea Canales about the WPS.

As a new league, Women’s Professional Soccer, prepares to launch in ’09, the American players are the ones now looking outward with hope. U.S. women’s national-team coach, Pia Sundhage, believes her players had a lot to learn from others around the world.

“It will be fantastic with the league,” said Sundhage, who coached the WUSA’s Boston Breakers. “They’ll play with and against different cultures, so they have to adjust their game.”
