On this episode, we welcome Jamaica Women’s National Team goalkeeper Sydney Schneider. We also hear from New Zealand Women’s National Team captain Ali Riley.
Do you have a ‘guilty pleasure’ team you’ll be rooting for in the 2023 Women’s World Cup? New Zealand, Costa Rica, South Africa, Republic of Ireland, Argentina, Haiti, or Jamaica? Whether or not they’re your country’s team, we still love rooting for the underdog – it’s what makes this game fun.
On this episode, we welcome fan-favorite goalkeeper Sydney Schneider! Listen in as Sydney shares her football journey, her experience as the go-to goalkeeper for everyone’s favorite underdog team, Jamaica Women’s National Team, and her experience playing for her current club team Sparta Prague in Fortuna Liga.
If you followed Sydney’s career from UNC Wilmington to the NWSL, you’ll want to catch up with her and find out what to expect this summer in Australia. If you don’t know much about the star goalkeeper for the Reggae Girlz, this is the interview for you! (14’)
Keeping in line with the underdog mentality, we hear from New Zealand captain Ali Riley as she discusses her Football Ferns and what they need to do to progress through a very tough group stage. Ali is always fun to hear from and never at a loss for words. (1:06’’)
