March 8, as you may or may not know, was International Women's Day. Falls at a perfect time when many of the world's top female footballers are playing in the Algarve Cup, wouldn't you say? From the official IWD website: "Celebrated on 8 March, International Women's Day (IWD) is the global day connecting all women around the world and inspiring them to achieve their full potential." A great message and one that the U.S. WNT surely has been contributing to for years. The hotel staff was kind enough to give flowers to all the female players and staff from all four teams staying here. Happy IWD from the WNT Blog!
