"As we celebrate the fortieth anniversary of the passage of title nine, we welcome one of the legends of American soccer, a hall of Famer, one of the key cogs on the ninety nine World Cup championship team that would do so much to advance women's sports in the US and beyond our old friend colleague Julie Foudy Julie Thank. You for being with us, Jeremy Julius it's kind of impossible to talk about the evolution of Women's sports. Sports in the impact of title, nine forty eight years later without talking about nineteen ninety nine, and I know you talk about it all the time and I know you're asked to talk about it all the time but you can't really overstate the significance of what happened that summer. When you think back to it now. How do you place it in the context of all that we've seen in terms of progress women's sports. You know I I take a long heavy side there because when we were in the moment and ninety nine. We felt, and we were very cognizant of the fact that this is going to be the standard that all other women sporting events this fire to and not just women's soccer. That's right like we're very conscious of. We're in the moment. We're setting the standard. We're doing it in big stadium for doing it national. We're not going. Which is what?

"Time now to welcome in Julie Foudy to the show, Julie, we missed you last night. You were pretty busy covering the US, France match a where do we find you today? Well, I'm happy to report. My family arrived yesterday today is a day off after I hotel about three thirty AM and I'm on literally on top of the Eiffel tower. Sierran kappa. Hey. It's crazy. Out timing wise when our time has to do the cast, I was like, well, I'm gonna do it from the job then between you. How did we get a signal between you and me a ham? You guys are the best humble braggers, I have ever been friends with, like everything's like. And you're not being leg snooty about it. But it's like humble, brag away sisters humble bag away. Dear I caught the three thirty AM hotel arrival also in that note, Julie, obviously an amazing night on amazing that, hey, we didn't get a chance to hear from you on this podcast. But Kate, and I heard from you on ESPN NFC and for the folks that didn't catch that hit could you just kind of recap off the field like the atmosphere? What the event was like. Oh my gosh. It literally was an and I've either played or covered every World Cup. There's been Kate. You're almost the same, and we've been to a lot of women's soccer matches. A lot of men's World Cup matches. That was an environment. I have never experienced before in particularly for women's World Cup. It was just electric the place was crazy. It was saying Bill have like fifty thousand Americans in their seats about forty five a little over and you probably had about a third of the stadium where American you couldn't hear them at all. It was during the French national anthem flags waving. They're all singing. It was an and then the first five minutes of that maj, anytime, the French even touched the ball, the place would go crazy. And that's why as I was saying last night that Megan repeal goal in the fifth minute was so huge because it totally took the air out of that stadium for France and I had her and the. Same thing in the second half. When she scored in the sixty fifth minute, I think it was. You know they were starting to get a little momentum in that hap- again the stadium was back in it, it was loud. It was roaring and then she puts another goal in. I mean literally my kids were at the game. And they were like mom was in Spain. Like I know. It was some special we just got a witness. It's interesting, you know, to hear her talk about Kate the atmosphere, because we heard it yesterday from Julian Laurent are French football expert who works for ESPN NFC. You know, he's covered games in Paris, his whole life PS g matches French national team matches. And he said, that stadium never been like that on yesterday show. That's that's how crazy it really was. Right. And that says a lot because I've actually been to a PS g match when there was a riot going on. And that Jillian happened to be at. So I think that was for him to say that, that's a testament and with Foudy I mean she's actually experienced it. Do you think any of the players on the US side were actually negatively impacted? I think someone like Megan repeat on Morgan thrive in that moment. Add the added distraction of the Trump tweets I think I'm not surprised Meghan Regino had the night that she did. But do you think any of the other players might have struggled? It's the first game we've seen Roosevelt struggling, I thought and you know, I don't know if that was a consequence of the environment or just the French being good. But I thought you know, for how good she's been this tournament as we've seen. I thought she struggled in that game I thought Tobin heath was a bit quiet, but I, I'm not sure I get the sense. I'm not sure it's the case of atmosphere. I get the sense that this group is loving that. And you know as we've talked about all tournament. They're embracing it and they're fine with it. And I mean for Meghan repay no after the week, she had to put into goals and do it in the fashion. She did.

"And I wonder if there, I bet they are disappointed, not winning a bet. They are one in three the beer the Knicks happening coming up. Tomorrow's game against Sweden is the one the USA needs to win and we will ask Julie Foudy agrees and later that Instagram posts from Brett farve saying he's making a comeback, by the way, don't call it a comeback. Ted Leonsis should want Jere. Anybody should the moves? He made this year to win. Anybody should want. Big big game for team USA in the World, Cup's tomorrow. And not only we bring in Julie Foudy to talk about it. We're bringing in from France that we welcome to the program, and we start with this. I called tomorrow's game against Sweden a statement game both teams are into the next round. So how important, do you think it is for the United States to beat Sweden? Well, here's the thing. Tony remember even though the United States our World Cup champions in two thousand fifteen in two thousand sixteen they got knocked out of the Olympics and by Sweden in the quarterfinal the earliest the US has ever gone out, and they've been holding onto that for three years. So they may say yes, we don't need this game. And yes, a winner draw gets us through top of the group. But this is definitely to your point a statement game for them because they have had really a warm up. This is when the World Cup starts, and this is win. They're going to want to say. Here's what this. New team is all about Julie's following up on that. Why is specifically Sweden's such a tough match-up for the US in recent years? They are organized, Michael. They stay compact there. Good defensively, in the US team of old. I would argue was not great at breaking down compact organized defenses and that actually was the lesson. They learned from the two thousand sixteen Olympics, as they need more creative players. That's what the United States was thinking. And so they brought in rose Lavelle Lindsey Horon, Mallory Pugh, some young midfielders with with some pace. And with some technical abilities that are more creative, and this team has been transformed by that group because of that because of that loss, really to Sweden. Julie, the new goalkeeper because all of us remember hope solo and people like that. A listen Nair has only needed to make three routine saves in full games. Is this lack of workload something to be concerned about? It's a good question. Actually, you know the thing to listen air is she has never played in a World Cup before this one. She's been on a World Cup team before. But to your point Tony, she. She played behind hope solo. And so she had she has big shoes to fill. And I do think it would have been nice to get her a little bit more tested, but we've been watching training and I can tell you the keepers they have been running them alike. It's fitness and hitting balls at them. And that's because she's just not getting that in real game. So. It's the one question Mark on this national team on this team right now. Is that goalkeeping position it would have been nice if she got challenged a little more in those first two games for sure a Wilbur on and I used learned a new word yesterday? VAR. We don't exert it stands for, but a lot of. There's been a lot of controversy about the use of the VR, especially in France's win over Nigeria, how do players feel about this eye in the sky that is consulted so often. Oh man. I know that Nigeria game I the thing is the a little bit of back story to it is they had it in Russia for the men for the first time and then said, oh, we're probably not going to bring it in for the women's and a lot of players. And a lot of women were like wait what you've gotta bring it to the women's World Cup..

"Know, I did my celebration and then went over to the bench, and they all just kinda did the did the little clap, which is fun. But, you know, those, those team celebrations are fun. And that's what they're all doubt gentlemen. I cannot say enough good things about the fact that they're trolling, everybody that had something to say about their celebrations last week to the thirteen nothing. I really love it. I mean I. We, we all I think, we're in agreement that forgetting the amount of goals because there is a goal differential that matters. It was the way they celebrated they celebrated amongst themselves. They didn't do anything in the face of their opponent zero issue with it, but they got a lot of clapback for it, and I love their little golf. Clapping answer to it. Back at people continue to answer by winning go into Thursday's match up with Sweden in a pretty good position where even if they draw in that they would still advance as the winners to move on from each group, they would be the one seed advancing from this group right now. Carli Lloyd becomes the first person to score and six straight women's World Cup games. She got her first start of seven lineup changes for the, we talked to Julie Foudy earlier the amount of people, they've been play in the turnament, so far could be huge for them as this goes later on listen the way this has played out for the US women seem has been absolutely perfect. They get a huge run of goals in some would say whatever goal differential matters. So they're plus sixteen in the goal differential, the first two games. And now in a game that they don't have to win. They get a chance where they can be tested and that will be a really good thing for them to truly find out who the let's be honest with all due respect, the title, Chile, they're not gonna tell us how good the women's team Sweden might be. Yeah. They aren't even even Julie told share in that, that they haven't been tested where she thinks the weaknesses could be on the defensive with an inexperienced goalkeeper trae said they don't have to win yesterday.

"I gotta find a new way to introduce you every day. Eight Markgraff, I'm Sebastian sell Assad. And, and we are joined also by another US international legend Julie Foudy, who live with us for the first time from France. The last time we saw her during our preview show, actually the last time we saw her Kate was with champagne glass in hand and mbacke Ganda bag at on sportscenter look Julie. I'm impressed by you. Right. Podcast co on your published author, but you go on sportscenter with champagne in a bag at I mean I mean, the carbo load of music. Thank you. Cute scarf on, and I would have been very French. It is it is the home of champagne. My friends, one must actually tag pieces with champagne. That's mandatory. When you come to a Ron's capital journalism with Jay from our, our one and only, Julie Foudy J. So julie. I will. I'll start with this. You've covered World Cups Olympics. You've covered special Olympic, so like big global events. Is there anything noteworthy or different or special about what you're experiencing so far these days in France? It was it was awesome actually to, to, to hear. I actually flew the, the night that France was playing over here. But you hear all the stories of the enthusiasm and the craziness around that French game in Paris, in our little town of Rum's rhymes, if you're American rounds if you're French is starting to bubble up because the Americans are coming in. There were some Norwegians here the other day, so I haven't been outside of our little town much. But you can see that the enthusiasm is building for sure. I'm jealous. I got a little bit this little bit. Are you seeing a bunch of the US players out and about Fouts? Yeah. They, it's nice because it's got a lot of I mean it's just like Bristol, Connecticut here. Really, it's really like it. Is there is there a lot? It's enough cute. There's a lot of cute outdoor cafes. And. Coffee shops. And, and you know like. K we've never been in that last group. And so never had to wait as a team this long. And it I can't even imagine I mean, obviously, we remember how much you just wanted to get that first game out of the way and feel good about it and gain some confidence and keep going and get the party started. But this is a lot of waiting and you're watching, and they're watching the French team play really well on that home opener. So they're sitting on that as well. And the possibility of meeting them in the quarter. So it's, it's a lot of coffee. I've seen them. I've seen them quite a bit sitting around town. Just trying to kill the time to me is the most interesting kind of dynamic around this way, does that they've had to see Kate everybody else play and in some cases, everybody else particular team. They're worried about play really, really well, right? I think France did more good for themselves in terms of. Kind of psyching up not out. That's not the correct word the United States more than the victory. They had against them in January when US played France in January. Right. And these are two teams that could face each other in the quarter-final, if they finished how we predict them to when they play them in January, France was amazing. But they also were informed in season. So they were in shape, US was not. And they had a lot of players injured. So they've always been on a fallback like we weren't at our full strength. But then when you watch France do what they did the South Korea and do it. So easily for ninety minutes are the only team that's put together a ninety minute performance that gets in your psyche. A little bit more, of course, resilient and strong Bill to handle it. But I think if anything it makes them dial in and focus a little bit more in practice. 'cause it's like we gotta be already, there's gonna be no like lackadaisical. Nece USA, of course. So opening up agree. Go ahead. Julie? Yeah, I agree. And it it it's sharpness. Right. You go. Okay. They're not rattled by that home opener. They're looking good. We got to be on our game..

We don't want you worrying about where your parents are where they're sitting how they're getting to the game. Right. So she to the point where she sat the parents of the family down, which was the best thing she ever did free on their own basically said, if you if you have questions about this, you go to this person, if you have questions about this you go to this person if you have question. About this you go to this person. You never go to your child as we did the same thing. That's good job, doctor Dr. That's right. My parents at one point all of a sudden I heard him like whispering to each other. When we were having one of our family visits, and they're looking kind of nervous, and I was like what's going on?

I think as an athlete going into the Olympics. Because obviously we had never been in one. The thing that blew me away is if you if you said if you were like boarding an airplane, for example, and we were with the national team in we're in our gear. Right. And they'd say, oh, you know, who are you guys in in the past? We would say over the US national soccer team. They like, oh, that's awesome. But if you said, we're the US Olympic soccer team there were. They'd sing the national anthem to you the whole plane would break out and standing ovation.

"And that was scary for sure and it took some years to feel like you were fine. But again, I think that's the beauty of team sports. You're in it with a group that's feeling similar a similar way in. So you can share that amongst your your peers in understand that you're not alone in that regard. And they can help you through it. So we did a bunch of work. I was fortunate enough to work with the Olympic volleyball team from the last quad and the women's team. And so there's two ways to approach the games as you will recognize this you can approach it as if as if it was the biggest game in the world, right? It's a circus innovate self. And there's nothing like it. So prepare for that. Or you treat it as if it's another game, right? And the the boundaries don't change the consequences. Don't change fill in the blades. And how did you go into the games which way did you take it just going to say which way did you take in? Okay. So you're not gonna change your answer right now. I know my answer could so I took it as we approached it. It wasn't just a Mike driven initiative, but we approached it as okay, the ball's gonna stay the same the same number of people on the court and the boundary of the same. You know? So let's play this one play at a time. Like, we know how and then we had a contingency like we plan for what it was going to be like to have more family members at the game than any other family. And what's it going to be like to have more cameras, and we built in a plan for the family members? Right. And so we had a structure in our day. It was a wakeup food movement training. Rehab rehab and then nutrition and then games games at night. And then on off days every other off date. We'd have a fan some family time for hunting. And that was it. So we scheduled the tollway. So that's how we went out. Right. And but I want to tell you a funny story that work didn't work quite right? So anyways. So that's how traditionally approached it. But it is a funny story, wait hanging on the dog to tell you my story until you tell me. This this right promised to tell your story. I won't come back with. Yes. So we approached it. With a combined approach like that. But more to the side of treat it like, it's a circus and be prepared for the circus. Right. And have to your point have a plan in place for how to deal with the distractions because mind, you we had never in the ninety six Olympics.

They got more creative players that can break down those compact defenses like Sweden did against them in two thousand sixteen that Robert runs a little deep especially in American spot when it comes to losing to Sweden, Julie.

"To three at the world cup one more semi final coming up on wednesday but on tuesday was france with a one nil win over belgium brands becoming the sixth team to reach three world cup finals it's their sixth major tournament final only two teams in europe have more at being germany well out in front with fourteen italy has nine france now has six they move into the final espn analyst taylor twelve i think when you look at this group of players and this is the youngest group that a french national team has ever brought to a major tournament to a world cup and when you look at this meal they really believe in what they're doing but they also have a chip on their shoulder what i mean by that is i was there in the stadium in paris when they lost the two thousand sixteen here paean cup final to portugal it almost seemed like from that moment they said you know what we need to get back to a major tournament final i don't disagree with that i think this is francis all right so if it's france's world cup to lose than oo do they want to win between croatian england i don't think it matters i really don't i think they're that confident now you're asking me who's got the upper hand between england and croatia i still think it's the english because gracious played what a two hundred and forty minutes with two games going kicks i'm not sure they can recover in time to try to do that for a third time but when you look at the french national team i don't care who they care about anything nothing all right so legs and lungs croatia so you pick england to win that and go to the cup final against france is that what i'm hearing i do i do but i remember looking you right the is saying russian you've looked at me with this work in your face and said russia's going to beat spain and then you also told me you were going to take croatia so basically i'm telling you whatever i pick take the opposite he could take france when they're playing in that part of the world france has reached the semifinals of every world cup on european soil for which it has qualified since nineteen eighty two they beat belgium one nil on monday moving into the finals of this one it was the seventy fourth meeting between these two teams france has won all three world cup meetings the most against a single opponent in its world cup history so france gets either croatia or england in the final on sunday final taking place on sunday the other semi coming up on wednesday sportscenter allnight espn radio and the espn app you spent nine years in spain but cristiano renaldo is on the move real madrid says he is leaving julie foudy and casey keller are espn soccer analysts so is having some issues actually i think he wasn't quite getting along with the president their foreign chino peres had promised that he would get a pay raise neymar was making more money messy was making more money that pay raise never came and he was feeling like the club didn't want them and i think that's a heart and he even said after they won the champions league most recently said that a very good time at this club which is when everyone started to suspect oh interesting you're saying that in the past tense there are some issues here so i think it was he felt like it was time to move on and wasn't sure he was completely appreciated for the talent which we've seen for many years now think about that four champions league's four balladur's meaning the best player in the world and that's only at nine years at real madrid he has had a really good time the numbers are off the charts check this out he's the all time leading score and row madrid history over a goal per game during his career that's just ridiculous one point oh three goals per game average more than twentyseven teams had in europe's top five domestic leagues last year casey you've instances like what does this mean from you the ventas perspective i think you saw that number with two champions league titles they they've been so close the last couple of years and they've won seven league titles in a row they need something.

"The shell pennzoil performance line to talk to to time people women's world cup champ an olympic gold medal is also a part of the great ninety nine team that resulted in the epic and icon ick brandy chastain goal that we're all celebrating the anniversary of today foudy does that feel like it was more recent or further away than it actually was today like it was when i when i heard nineteen years and it's like come on weak maybe not own count on my day how many years i've been retired and i had to go to like my toes julie we're just making everybody happy we're peaking the light here i want to ask you a little bit about today's match up a belgium came into today's matchup scoring in an alarming clip and then couldn't get anything done was that because of some failing for belgium in your mind or because france was just that good defensively i think i would i give the credit to france i don't think belgium played his best game ever they looked a little lake he tired but france you know as you were playing in that clip we were talking about is you know you know belgium broadens them some americans in particular that right hand side they got so much talent even coming off the bench bench and he was fighting all and he's really within dangerous crosses and france was organized and paying attention to the small details and those are the things that matter in a semifinal cup especially as you get to the last twenty minutes when you're just dead dog tired and they were better in that situation and they ended up getting a set piece goal off a centreback france did catching you know some some poor marking at the near post but it was it was a great goal by them and they held on talking to julie foudy it was belgium's first defeat of any kind since a friendly defeat back in september twentieth sixteen against spain france was still the favourite in here but that's an incredible run what do you think exactly went wrong for them here that they had done so right in other matches leading up to this well they had in roberto martinez a coach had you know created this run that was his run when it came on in two thousand sixteen he's known as a master tactician and worked with us for many years at espn so we know his brain well and so he created the built with this golden generation that had so much promise really good team but today i you know that's where i give credit to france there key players which are their front three mkaku who's been so good as term tournament whose quiet you had kevin to boina who everyone knows of course was meant city who was quiet and has our was on that frontline did some dangerous things but i give french credit for saying we're gonna utilizing some of their key players they have a ton of talent up there so i would say it was probably because france was the better team rather than a lack of something that belgium to that drew a lot of conversation after today's game about a blown call when belgium was on the offensive and had what looked like it'd be good a good scoring opportunity on the whole how would you rate the officiating for the world cup so far i you know i been a fan although it has drawn a lot of debate of the video review and the only thing that drives me batty as this is on the rest is that they have been consistent with the.

"The field so greening and as walked when you walked from the tunnel which is really dark you go out into this brilliant midday sun and it was just incredible even on television the game had a kind of technicolor quality i was in high school then a big sports fan who liked to read box scores of her breakfast but i never seen anything like this what we're seeing clearly transcends towards the us women's national team seem to be playing for more than world championship in three short weeks it has become the hottest story of the summer exceeding all expectations it was playing for a place in history and perhaps for a way to change history how would i like to bid in fine i'm julie foudy former captain of the usa women's soccer team two time olympic gold medalist fabulous shower singer there was a a real recognition and we were very cognizant of the fact that there was something greater happening beyond just you know individual accolades or even the group being successful as a whole is that there is almost a movement in hand of the power of a team coming together but to have a lasting impact to turn this moment into a movement they had to win the cup in the final the team play china to a scoreless draw through regulation after thirty minutes of overtime both teams since still failed to score the game would be decided by penalty kicks there is a lot of pressure here you never wanna to come down the pk's because it's really there's some skill involved but it's a lot luck as well.
