    Yes. she waiting for FIFA, who just changed their rules, to allow her to play.
    the rule was 5 years after 18.
    now it's 5 years regardless of age
    + not moving for soccer.

    The funny thing is, she moved for soccer and has stated so in interviews. She's later tweaked the reason for education, etc. but...

    I believe the new rule isn't about moving for "football reasons" but moving for the purpose of becoming eligible for a national team:

    demonstrate that the move to the territory of the association was not for the purpose of participating for its representative teams

    At the worst, she becomes eligible when she turns 23 (5 years after 18). The delay is likely because this is a new process for FIFA and there are some administrative/process obstacles that pop up early in a new procedure.

    Rat Verlegh Stadion opened in 1996 and has a capacity of 19,000 but will eerily look more like the photo below at first kick on November 27, 2020. Sorry to hear about Miedema missing the Match (Hip), she is Baaaaaad to the bone.

    I haven’t suffered so many setbacks since my second-year Spring Semester at University (apparently, Heineken was NOT recognized as a valid Major).

    COVID-19 wins.

    On the trip, I was anxiously looking forward to dropping by The Hague and arguing –
    1. For the official recognition of Tobin’s Goal in the Sweden WWC Match, and
    2. For the inclusion of Hope Solo in the National Soccer Hall of Fame
    to correct those grave injustices at the International Court of Justice.

    And after attending 33 consecutive USWNT Matches comessssssssssss……. -0-.

    A Beachhead will NOT be established.

    We feel your pain, Jackdoggy. I'm looking forward to the match - understatement of the year for this thread. I hope they don't add fake crowd noise; I like to hear the players and coaches.

    Press been only able to score only 1 goal in 267 minutes playing time on an Man U team that plays very 'direct soccer' that even Jill Ellis would get goose bumps from watching them
    Mewis got two goals, but definite strong, physical presence for Man City yet currently only in 5th place in the league standing(so the league does have some depth)

    now words out that the Netherland's best player; central striker, Miedema is out with an injury. The Dutch don't go deep enough to be really able to replace her, dso US chances of winning went up the roof
