Honestly, I’m losing interest in the national team, and it’s not because they didn’t call up my favorite player.
This team hasn’t been the same since the 2015 World Cup. This isn’t the team I started supporting. Not because it’s not made up of the same players but because I feel like there is absolutely no drive there. It’s like watching robots run around on the field.
Take the Olympics for instance. I literally thought the Olympics was the worst I’ve ever seen this team play.
Then the She Believes Cup™ happened. That fucking shit show of a tournament. Sweet fuck. I don’t even know what to say about it. They were God awful. I mean, they won the one game that I physically got to go to in Chester against Germany, and to be completely honest, I wasn’t impressed. I was excited to be there and to get to see them live in person but other than that? Nothing.
The only thing I know is that this isn’t the team I fell in love with. The team I fell in love with was ruined by Jill Ellis the moment she snubbed HAO for the Olympics. It’s all been downhill since.
