Olympics, NWSL & Liga MX

In episode #328 of the Mixxed Zone, Jen “The Keeper” Cooper talks Tokyo Olympics, NWSL and Liga MX Femenil with two guests.

In the first chat, Jen chats with Dan Lauletta of Equalizer Soccer about his takeaways from the Tokyo Olympics, the challenges of early morning viewing, and the state of the NWSL halfway through the 2021 regular season.

Then Jen catches up with Melissa of Chivas_FEng about Liga MX Femenil as it enters the 2020-21 season and also the Mexican women’s national team.

This week’s “Jensplaining” segment cover the format of the upcoming Women’s International Champions Cup (Portland) and Women’s Cup tournaments (Louisville).
