US women soccer team does not like playing on synthetic turf
When it was announced last week that the women's 2015 World Cup final in Vancouver would be the first championship game played on artificial turf, US players quickly responded. Now they plan to reach out to international stars to bring about change. "We have to mobilize leadership around the world, it can't be the U.S.'s fight," Abby Wambach, the 2012 FIFA women's world player of the year, said. "This has to be an issue that all players take on as a responsibility." Wambach said she felt the move was a "slight" against women.
