United States women’s national team coach Tom Sermanni has been traveling to various National Women’s Soccer League venues to take in matches. On Saturday, he watched the Boston Breakers beat the Chicago Red Stars 4-1. Sydney Leroux scored a hat trick for Boston.
Sermanni said the quality of the NWSL thus far has been “far above the expectations.” He also spoke about the importance of the league, which he says goes beyond just developing players for the U.S. national team.
Sermanni on Leroux: “She’s been impressive all year for the national team. She’s had some starts and she’s taken those opportunities (and) scored for the national team. She’s a handful and she’s a great player.”
Watch the video above for the full interview with Sermanni discussing the NWSL, Leroux and the City of Boston.
