Reading this still pisses me off like no other, seriously WTF US Soccer?
This is Mittsy!
Scheduling of international friendlies isn’t a simple process. A testimonial will require additional work as I’m sure Mitts would prefer to play the match in a location of significance and possibly against an important opponent.
I personally dislike the idea of requesting a testimonial because it is intended to honor a player’s service to a team. Obviously Mitts has done a lot for the USWNT, with over 130 caps, but I think she’s going about this the wrong way.
I could see a combined testimonial for Mitts, Rampone, and Boxx, but I wouldn’t hold my breath for an individual testimonial, except perhaps for Rampone.
For the time being, I think just getting the USSF to treat the USWNT equally is a big enough task. We still won’t be seeing the number one team in the world playing against the number two team next week…
