Question ID: 176168
Does the US Women's National Soccer Team practice, and typically lose, against high school boys soccer teams? I remember reading somewhere on the Web (I think in a national magazine) that the US Women's National soccer team practices against high school boys, and typically loses. One of the women players described how the boys literally ran circles around the players of the women's national team. I would like to find this article or references to this article.

Hi nimbel9-ga, " Don't expect to see in WUSA the same kind of athleticism you would see in the men's game. The women's national team sometimes practices against under-sixteen boys' teamsand loses. "They just boot it over our heads and run past us," Kate Sobrero, the national-team and Boston Breaker defender, told me. But in most important technical respectsball control, shooting, tactical sense, and, above all, passingthe women are just as skillful as the men." http://www.theatlantic.com/issues/2001/06/stossel-p2.htm Hope this helps Best regards jeanwil-ga
