"Understanding that most of the game has nothing to do with kicking a ball, is one step closer to understanding the game" - From Umbro ad


"Oh the places you'll go!

There is fun to be done!

There are goals to be scored.

There are games to be won.

And the magical things you can do with that ball,

will make you the winning-est winner of all.”

Dr Seuss

U S soccer star Alex Morgan blasts FIFA . . .


for using women as ‘guinea pigs’ at next year’s World Cup in CanadaFor the first time in World Cup history, the event will be played entirely on turf fields. All six venues that will host the best female players on the planet next summer will feature FieldTurf instead of natural grass.

Andy Clayton --  New York Daily News

U.S. star Alex Morgan is not taking the turf issue lying down as she blasts FIFA ahead of the 2015 Women's World Cup set to be played in Canada next summer without natural grass.

FIFA can take its turf and shove it.

That's the message that is gaining steam from the women who are now less than a year away from kicking off the 2015 Women's World Cup in Canada.

For the first time in World Cup history, the event will be played entirely on turf fields. All six venues that will host the best female players on the planet next summer will feature FieldTurf instead of the natural grass that has previously always been a must from soccer's organizing body for hosting these showcase events.

Alex Morgan is just the latest star to deliver a swift kick to the shin of FIFA boss Sepp Blatter.

"They are treating us as second class to the men," Morgan told TMZ Sports, "using the women as guinea pigs in their experiment is just not right."

Morgan, 25, who has played on the senior women's national team since 2010, said the World Cup is not the time to settle for an inferior playing surface.

Morgan's sharp comments come just days after it was revealed a group of approximately 40 national team players (including Morgan) from around the globe have retained legal help to take the fight to FIFA over the turf issue.

Abby Wambach, the veteran American superstar who has scored a record 167 international goals, is also part of the group that retained the legal counsel of two firms - one in the U.S. and one in Canada.

The soccer website The Equalizer obtained a copy of the letter the lawyers for the players sent to FIFA and Canada Soccer at the end of July which called the turf fields "a second-class surface." The letter claims gender discrimination and violation of Canadian law.

Wambach, the 2012 FIFA World Player of the Year, has been outspoken on the issue from the start.

"I'm feeling like this is the women's game taking a step back," Wambach told Sports Illustrated last year.

FIFA has yet to comment on the legal volley fired by the players.
