  • Five players to watch at the Fifa Women’s World Cup 2019
    While the average football fan might be able list a dozen names of male superstars in their sleep, they’d likely find a surplus of fingers counting the women players they know.   Women’s football isn’t considered glamorous like the men’s game which is inundated with ludicrous transfer fees, advertising contracts, and salaries, creating
