The North Carolina Courage dominated headlines around the NWSL world this week, and not always for their play on the field. In that regard, the defending Shield winners remain stellar, running their unbeaten streak to 13 games and handing the league’s defending champions, the Portland Thorns, a 4-1 shellacking at Providence Park.
On this episode of the Equalizer Podcast, Dan Lauletta, Claire Watkins and Richard Farley discuss that as well as the controversy surrounding the league leaders; namely, the confirmation that left back Jaelene Hinkle withdrew from U.S. women’s national team camp last year because of U.S. Soccer’s choice to celebrate LGBTQ Pride Month with rainbow-colored jersey numbers.
And, as always, the show is here for your questions, from U.S. callups, to potential MVP candidates, to the league’s most overrated and underrated, to who our NWSL XIs would be, based on league form.
