Looking forward to seeing the new American goalkeeper, plus Jordan, Mana and Lina showing their skills and energy.


Good to see the rotation.COYG’s


Mana Iwabuchi. Nice that she starts. But. Keeping her on the bench is a waste of talent. Play her or trade her. She is at the peak of her athletic skill & ability. She has played with and against the best in the world. Why trash her career? Which is rhetorical. Coach is quite a knob.
