Women’s World Football Show – Episode 95 welcomes USWNT icon Julie Foudy and German sports writer Jana Lange.
As one of the more influential voices in women’s soccer, Julie Foudy continues to make an impact in the lives of young people everywhere. Women’s World Football Show welcomes the former captain of the USWNT to chat about a few of her upcoming projects, including her new book, Choose to Matter. In this engaging book, Julie encourages young women to find the leader that exists in all of them, whatever their personality or vocal chord strength might be.
Along with her book, Julie is releasing a video series through ESPN W titled #SockTalk, where she takes the audience along on the interviews she conducted for the book. Her interviews are always insightful, funny and inspiring. As a two-time Olympic Gold Medalist, two-time Women’s World Cup champion and now respected sports broadcaster at ESPN, Julie has become an advocate for teaching young girls to “step out of their comfort zone and become comfortable with the uncomfortable.” In this exclusive WWFShow interview, Julie shares why it’s important to empower young people to do and be more than they think they can be.
Julie also shares her thoughts on the current state of women’s soccer in the USA, what she thinks about USA players leaving the NWSL to play overseas, why she thinks Hope Solo is not a good fit for the future USWNT, and so much more! Julie is candid, honest, forthright and funny! If you’re a fan of women’s soccer and believe in empowering young girls to be leaders, this is a “must-listen.” (7:00′)
