Photo Copyright Lewis Gettier for The Equalizer

The North Carolina Courage won their second consecutive National Women’s Soccer League Championship with an emphatic 4-0 victory over the Chicago Red Stars.

It was a dominant display from the Courage, one which no team in this league would have been able to stop on the day. And the thing is, nobody has really been able to stop North Carolina over the course of a season, either. How will anyone in this league keep up in 2020? Chelsey Bush joins Dan Lauletta and John Halloran from on the ground in North Carolina to discuss the NWSL’s final game of the season.
