The Great Britain Women’s American Football team is searching for a gold at this year’s European Championship next week in Leeds. Can Great Britain go one better than 2015 and gain a home-field victory with the home-field advantage?

When did the journey start?

The Great Britain Women’s American Football Team was formed at the early inception of Women’s American Football in the UK in 2013.  The British Women took to the game quickly and came out on top against experienced opposition Sweden with a success in a 5-a-side international.

In 2014, the British women faced Sweden again in a full 11-a-side game this time and also get a win. Women’s Football in the UK was growing very quickly.

In 2015, they join the first time in International Tournament Football. The team went into the Tournament as the absolute underdogs inspite of putting in an impressive performance in winning their qualify over Russia.

In their first game of WEC 2015, Great Britain beat previous European Champions Germany, earned a Silver Medal and claimed second place behind a very dominant Finland side.

In the summer of 2017A they continued to finish second-place in the qualification of World Championship, and took a trip to Vancouver, Canada. They would be facing Finland in their very first game of the Tournament. Head Coach, Jim Messenger, and Great Britain Women make them the Number One Seeds in Europe by defeating the Fins at the very top of their game.

At this year’s European Championship, Coach Messenger and his team will  attempt to make up for the pain of missing out on a World Championship Medal and hope to convert Silver into Gold.

LFL got the idea and came out of the Super Bowl. During the break during the Super Bowl matches, the girls dressed up as sexy, cheerleading girls playing with baseball balls caused a fever for TV viewers. That is one of the main reasons why the baseball game has a large number of viewers on the US television system.

LFL is a sport with a very special starting point

Mitch Mortaza – a person who has a great influence on American sports has just come up with the idea of ​​turning this form of entertainment into a real sport. Instead of bulky clothes like male colleagues, female athletes will wear underwear when competing with protective equipment at the head, elbows, elbows …

Each team will have 14 athletes, including 7 defending players and 7 others attacking. The matches will take place in 2 halves of 17 minutes each. Unlike other tournaments, the LFL mostly takes place in the fall and winter. The teams will be divided into two areas, East and West, to compete with each other. The top two teams of the region will compete in the playoffs to win the championship. In the last two seasons, the champion team has been the Los Angeles Temptation.

Most of the LFL teams are led by famous former American baseball players. Most female athletes have solid athletic foundations. Many of them have experience playing professional or semi-professional sports at universities, mainly in baseball, basketball, softball, volleyball, tennis, and athletics.

American football is seen as a cross between sport and entertainment. In the LFL, wearing undergarments is a must. Even the BTC tournament will be fined if the athlete wears discreet costumes when competing. However, to ensure the safety of the athletes, the protectors at the head, elbows, legs… are still necessary tools.

Initially, the tournament gathered 12 teams, but now it is reduced to only 7. In addition, the tournament is also held in Canada and Australia. In 2015, LFL Europe will be born with teams from Barcelona, ​​Manchester, Frankfurt, Rhein and Dublin.

Having been born nearly 7 years but since then, Legend Football League has caused mixed reactions of public opinion. Many people think that the matches that bring women to the pastime of the Legend Football League are too sexy and vulgar, while the loyal fans of this tournament, mostly men, especially love the resolution.

In the Football league matches, the girls are not only tasked with dressing sexy standing burning eyes audience. They also rushed to each other to compete, fight and curse like male colleagues. Tactics such as swearing at referees, throwing beer in the middle of a match or tearing pants, taking off shirts are also included in the maximum level of nothing but the purpose to customers.

According to statistics in the US, there are no less than 1 million paid subscribers to watch the matches of the Legend Football League. Meanwhile, the number of spectators coming to the stadium to watch the football matches is always very high.

Many girls look forward to playing in the Legend Football League, but not everyone has that luck. The selection criteria of the clubs are clear, fast, strong and hot but must be amateur. The reason is that the Legend Football League does not allow clubs to recruit professional players who are playing in the American professional football league for women.

America won the women’s World Cup 2019

The 2-0 victory over Holland in the final on July 7 brought American girls the fourth win in the world championship. The US team took the throne when winning all seven matches at the Women’s World Cup 2019.

With the US captain Megan Rapinoe returning to the main kick, both teams have the strongest force for the important match. The American girls joined better when actively taking over the game and giving pressure to the opponent. The opportunity was continuously created by Alex Morgan. The striker twice invaded the penalty area and finished, but the Dutch player Veenendaal played brilliantly.

As the defending champion, American girls are the ones who take the initiative and push the opponent. Many opportunities were created, but the Dutch defense still stood firm. European representatives advocated strong defensive play and waited for the opportunity to launch counter-attacks. But it was not until the end of the first half that the Netherlands created some situations on the ball. However, no table was scored in the first half.

After the break, the United States attacked, paid off with a penalty in the 61st minute. The referee consulted VAR, and determined Van Der Gragt’s defender had a high-legged error, causing Morgan to fall in the penalty area. Captain Rapinoe scored the correct spot on the 11m mark.

By 69 minutes, America doubled the gap. Lavelle takes the ball in the middle and then hits a long-range cannon, kicking the Dutch goalkeeper. The Dutch girls tried to rise up and seek to settle but still failed. The match ended with a score of 2-0. This is the fourth time in US history to win the Women’s World Cup, after the 1991, 1999, and 2015 periods.

Besides the championship, the US team also acquired two other noble individual titles at the Women’s World Cup 2019. Their captain Rapinoe was elected the best player in the tournament. Rapinoe and his teammate Morgan and the striker Ellen White share the best scorer with six goals each.

The two French and American women’s soccer teams met on the evening of June 28, 2019, at the Parc des Princes, Paris, to win a ticket to the semifinals of the Women’s World Cup 2019. Regarding the correlation of forces, It is impossible for the French to defeat the American team of Megan Rapinoe and Alex Morgan, even though the French team in January inflicted the one and only defeat on American in their last 20 matches.

The overall performance table of the French and American teams clearly shows the difference between the two sides. France has never entered a grand prize, whether it is the World Cup, the World Championship, or the European Cup. Meanwhile, the US team has won the World Cup three times in 1991, 1999 and 2015, and is looking for a fourth Cup. As the top ranking country of FIFA International Football Federation, the United States has also won the Olympics four times, in 1996, 2004, 2008, 2012.

However, in this 2019 World Cup, the talent of the two teams seems to be equal. The US team, despite having spectacularly won the Thai team 13-0, was struggling more in the eighth round, had to kick a penalty to win the Spanish team 2-1.

The French team had a perfect start to the match against the Korean team, winning 3-0, but then in the eighth round, they had to struggle to eliminate the Brazilian team 2-1 with the final goal by Amandine Henry’s in extra time.

France hopes in the match against the USA, home advantage and the enthusiastic cheers of the audience will motivate their female players.

The winner of the match will enter the semifinals to meet the English team, having won the Norwegian team 3-0 on the evening of June 27, 2019, on the ground of the port city of Le Havre, western France.

Germany, who also won Nigeria 3-0, will face the UK on the semi-finals.

U.S. Women’s Soccer Team Sues U.S Federation for Gender Discrimination

United States squad  – The leading women’s soccer team significantly recorded a gender discrimination lawsuit against their home soccer federation over pay equity and discriminated working conditions

On Friday, more than two dozen of United States women’s national team members brought U.S. Soccer to a federal court.

The suit is hold by United States District Court in Los Angeles, just comes three months before the female team will compete for its Women’s World Cup title at this summer’s tournament in France. In their case and a statement released by the team, twenty-eight players described that US soccer give “institutionalized gender discrimination” that has existed for years.

The discrimination, the female players said, affects not only their wages but also the location and the consequences, the training ways, the medical treatment and coaching they receive, and even the travel ways to matches.

The players involved includes prominent stars like Alex Morgan, Megan Rapinoe and Carli Lloyd as well as their teammates who are some of the most accomplished and best-known female players in the world, members of a squad that has been a leading force in female sports for more than a generation.

The  continuing battle between women’s soccer players and U.S. Soccer, which is not only their employer, but also the federation that governs the sport in America, has pushed them to the forefront of an expanding fight for equality in women’s sports. In recent years, the  athletes in other sports genres such as American hockey gold medalists, Canadian soccer pros, W.N.B.A. players — have communicated to the United States players and their union for instruction in their efforts to win similar gains in terms of paychecks and working conditions.

For many years, U.S. Soccer Federation has been a world leader in its support for women’s soccer; its contribution of time and resources which has brought the United States became a three-time world champion and a four-time Olympic gold medalist, the major power in women’s game. But at that time generations of women’s national team players are always complaining that the federation’s financial support and logistical infrastructure for women’s athletes have lagged behind in comparison with the more high-profile men’s team.

The fight of women’s players maximize their value in the same way other athletes have done and provide a roadmap for the next team home or abroad which catches fire and has to follow suits related to the great inequities in resources or a governing body’s discrimination between the men’s soccer and the women’s.
