Goal.com has posted a nice WPS season preview by Kathryn Knapp.
On the Breakers … “Boston will undoubtedly put a quality product on the field. If anyone knows how to succeed in women’s soccer, it’s DiCicco. Expect them to have a competitive campaign and be a tough team to get past.”
Hmmmm … but she doesn’t indicate that teams WON’T get past ’em.
We shall see who’s left standing in August.
Meanwhile, from Soccer America – here are some nice rivalry back stories for tomorrow’s opener between the LA Sol and the Washington Freedom.
Brazilian Marta won’t be the only star on display when the Los Angeles Sol hosts the Washington Freedom Sunday in the Women’s Professional Soccer opening game (TV: Fox Soccer Channel, live, 6 pm ET). Both teams are loaded with international and collegiate stars who were once teammates but will be on the opposing side of the field Sunday at the Home Depot Center.
And from The Sports Capital – here’s a profile of the Breakers’ Nancy Augustyniak Goffi – a product of NJ. Who knew? (Maybe Bruce will come to a Breakers game???)
