All about the game
This trophy is what the U.S. got when they won the World Cup.
This was a all girls Soccer team that played and won for their country.
The crowd was so big that it played in a major role in woman can play sports when they won it changed the mind set in the U.S.
This is what Kristi Mayo said when I asked her what she heard about in the game of 1999.
I remember watching the final game of the 1999 Women’s World Cup, sitting on the literal edge of my seat as China and USA battled stride for stride on the soccer pitch.
what impact did it have?
“Would it make women's soccer a major sport in this country? It didn't of course, two women's leagues folded before the current, sensibly run, federation-backed version got going. Would it lead to greater respect for women's sports in general and more coverage?” Woman playing would show a lot of respect because they won if the U.S. didn’t win the question is sports are for men only.
