Kitboys Club and Atlanta United want to celebrate and honore the women’s teams who overcame tremendous obstacles to play in this year’s World Cup, and make up part of our city. There are so many teams that created history for the first time, broke records, and had groundbreaking achievements in this year’s World Cup.
Recognizing that these same nationalities make up our team and our city, we are paying homage to the perseverance shown by these strong ladies to deliver inspiring performances to women all over the world. Teams featured in the capsule are Jamaica, Nigeria, Argentina, Colombia, and the US.
Colombia was the country who advanced further in the competition, reaching the Quarterfinals for the very first time in their history, a feat achieved also by the men's national team once in 2014. Colombia beat Jamaica in the Round of 16 who also achieved their best result in the history of the tournament by eliminating favorites Brazil in the group stage.
Nigeria and the US also were knocked out of the competition in the Round of 16, while Argentina were not able to advance past the group stage.
