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' teams—and 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
respects—ball control, shooting, tactical sense, and, above all,
passing—the women are just as skillful as the men."

Hope this helps

Best regards
