This is the sixth installment of the NEW Keeper Notes WoSo Weekly Podcast.
In this week’s episode, Keeper Notes’ Jen Cooper and Joe Offebacher talk about the Algarve Cup where in the case of the US women, “all good streaks come to an end”.
Jen considered the team as a B+ team. “This is where we need to lose” since she stated that the USWNT needs to have really tough and games with little rest in between. They discuss how for this tournament, you should look at who received time, how players adapted with each other, and which players will be losing their spots to the younger players on the squad.
They talk about the upcoming USWNT friendlies right before the start of the NWSL season and the potential complications with their club teams.
They continue with the Cyprus Cup and the return of Canada’s Erin McLeod to the Houston Dash and the impact of Lauren Sesselmann ACL injury had on the Dash’s roster. Jen & Joe discuss Haley Carter’s career, how she joined up with the Houston Dash, how “she does not give up easily”, and her chances on making the team.
The Houston Dash preseason kicks this week against the Rice Owls, Texas A&M Aggies, and finally concluding with a Houston Aces after the Dynamo game at BBVA Compass Stadium.
Finally they discuss the women’s U-17 tournament and the US-based players on the Mexico team.
