Women’s World Football Show, Episode 41 features an exclusive interview with former USWNT midfielder and icon Julie Foudy; German sportswriter Jana Lange; Soundbites from England’s Mark Sampson and Jodie Taylor; USA’s Jill Ellis, Lori Chalupny, and Meghan Klingenberg; and Houston Dash’s Randy Waldrum and Kealia Ohai.
Women’s World Football Show welcomes the legendary Julie Foudy! As a two-time Women’s World Cup winner and pioneer in the women’s game, Julie continues to be an inspiration for young people all over the world. The US Soccer Hall of Fame inductee talks about growing up in Southern California and her journey through the unchartered path of women’s soccer.
As the captain of the infamous 99er’s, Julie helped change the face of soccer in the United States, as well as women’s sports worldwide. The celebrated footballer also gives her thoughts on the current US Women’s National Team, Women’s World Cup 2015, as well as her work with ESPN and the Julie Foudy Sports Leadership Academy (“This is so not a soccer camp”).
If you’re unfamiliar with the roads Julie Foudy helped pave for women’s soccer, you’ll want to listen to this very candid, inspiring and entertaining interview.
German sports writer Jana Lange joins the show to give us some much-needed insight and commentary on all things German women’s football. In this episode, Jana updates us on Germany, the recent retirement announcement of Head Coach Silvia Neid, Frauen-Bundesliga, Champions League, und mehr!
