The Women’s World Cup is just days away, and here at Backheeled, we’re beyond excited to cover the United States as they push for a three-peat this summer. The team is filled with an incredible mix of young superstars and savvy veterans that could come together to do something truly special.
You, dear reader, know what to expect from the USWNT at this tournament: goals, wins, and then more goals and more wins.
But what can you expect from Backheeled during the World Cup?
Well, we won’t just tell you that the United States won a game or that Sophia Smith is talented. We won’t tell you that the sky is blue, either. Instead, we’ll write stories that actually tell you why and how the United States pulled off their latest win. We’ll dig into what really makes some of the USWNT’s most legendary players so…legendary. We’ll break down key plays from every U.S. game, keeping you connected to what happens on the field, even when that field is on the other side of the world.
During this World Cup, we’re here to provide you with sharp, entertaining coverage of the soccer happening in Australia and New Zealand. We want to help you find even more enjoyment as you watch the USWNT on the world’s biggest stage.
We’ll ask big questions, like…
What needs to go right for the USWNT to come out on top? Is manager Vlatko Andonovski making the right decisions? Does the best player in the world really play for the United States?
We’ll have fun along the way, too, marveling at otherworldly goals and weaving personality into each story.
So, buckle up for plenty of World Cup coverage coming your way, starting tomorrow with a look behind enemy lines at the U.S.'s first three opponents.
