FIFA scandal 2015 and the women’s world cup starts June 6th in Canada.
What a week, Wed May 27th only two days before the FIFA organization
votes for a new president, six people were picked up at the FIFA hotel by
Swiss police on behalf of the US Attorney General’s office and the FBI. Update at end of this article..
Later 10 others were nabbed across the world to make it 16 in total that were arrested for corruption with
bribery charges. On Friday May 28th Sepp Blatter was again voted in as the president of FIFA for the
fifth term. Can you imagine? Russia has a world cup coming up in 2018, now is that in the balance?
Is there proof of any wrong doing on how they landed that event? How about Qatar, people dying in
building the stadiums, and the event moved to the Nov 2022 for high summer heat and religious
reasons given. Sepp Blatter is in the hot seat right now, soon more people will fall in the FIFA scandal
as more turn on the others who took more than $110 to $160 million in kick backs from what Loretta
Lynch US Attorney General and FBI James Comey have released to date. The real question is how
does this affect the Women’s World Cup kicking off June 6th in Canada? Will the highly favored US
squad finish with the cup after losing to Japan in 2011 on penalty kicks? The US team looks very
focused as Abby Wambach many be playing her final matches for the red, white, and blue kits after
an amazing career and record breaking achievements. The squad for Canada WC 15 looks like Shannon
Boxx, Morgan Brian, Lori Chalupny, Whitney Engen, Ashlyn Haris, Tobin Heath, Lauren Holiday, Julie
Johnston, Meghan Klingenberg, Ali Krieger, Sydney Leroux, Carli Lloyd, Alex Morgan, Alyssa Naeher,
Kelley O’Hara, Heather O’Reilly, Christen Press, Christie Rampone, Megan Rapinoe, Amy Rodriguez,
Becky Saurbrunn, Hope Solo, and All World Abby Wambach. Coach Jill Ellis has a high powered
offense with Wambach and Leroux while Alex Morgan hopfully recovers from an injury. The defense
looks strong with Solo, Saurbrunn, Klingenberg, Johnston, Krieger, O’Hara, and stronghold master
Rampone. Midfield is scrappy and quick with amazing over lapping runs from Rapinoe, Lloyd, Press,
Heath, Holiday, Engen, Brian, and Boxx all these players are all over the pitch.
Hopefully the FIFA scandal 2015 and the women’s world cup doesn’t mess up the US team from
playing June 8th in Canada, because we have a huge chance to bring home the hardware…..
GOOD Luck Ladies, can’t wait to celebrate with you… Great videos below
