USWNT: SoccerWire’s Mark Shawhan curates a conversation on Algarve Cup
The U.S. Women’s National Team won the Algarve Cup tournament with a 2-0 win over France in Portugal on Wednesday, providing coach Jill Ellis‘ team with a confidence boost and some reasons for encouragement as the final phase of preparation for the Women’s World Cup begins.
But the USWNT’s prospects remain far from certain. Even after many months and matches under Ellis’ regime, many of the same issues linger doggedly, frustrating fans and clouding the team’s true outlook.
SoccerWire.com columnist Mark Shawhan remains skeptical of the USWNT’s current tactics and selections, and this week he took part in some spirited conversations about the topic on Twitter. Below is a selection of those tweets, compiled by Shawhan on Storify. Please share your thoughts in the comments section, and be sure to follow Shawhan at @fitzcamel and SoccerWire at @TheSoccerWire.
