UEFA Women’s Champions League Round of 32

With a bit of a delay you can find the results of the Champions League Round of 32 rematches below. There barely are comments necessary, however a few results are remarkable. Austrian SV Neulengbach indeed held half-NWSL based Apollon Limassol to a draw and got them out of the competition. Also, Konak Belediyesi, a Turkish team, is a surprise find in the Round of 16 after beating Polish Racziborcz. One of these teams will even make it to the quarter final as the draw wants them to face one another in the next round. A real thriller happened in Copenhagen where one of the permanent top eight contenders, Brondby IF had to leave the competition early against FC Barcelona. After a scoreless draw in Spain, Barca held the hosts to a 2-2 draw and advanced on the away goals rule. Read more

Players Abroad: Omolyn Davis takes her game to Kazakhstan

by Tiffany Weimer

Through Twitter, I came across Omolyn Davis’ account with a Tweet saying she was playing in Kazakhstan. With not much known about women’s soccer in the country and she likely being one of the first North Americans to play there, I had to learn more. Check out my interview with the Jamaican international previously of George Mason University as well as magicJack SC of WPS, and Energiya Voronezh of Russia. Read more

A Player Abroad: Operation Fortuna Hjørring

by Tiffany Weimer

The second part of our season in Denmark’s 3F Ligaen starts next week. We have a long break that spans from the end of November until the end of March. For the most part, aside from the internationals that have a break for the holidays, the teams stay and train together during the “offseason”. This is a different idea than what we have seen in the US professional/semi-professional leagues. The only comparable organization to this system would be the NCAA where teams stay together most of the year. Read more
