Don’t miss a BRAND NEW episode of The Women’s Eye podcast with Catherine Anaya as I talk with 2019 FIFA Women’s National Soccer Team World Cup champion Jessica McDonald.

Jessica McDonald on Sports IllustratedJessica talks about growing up in an athletic family and how sports helped her cope with a difficult childhood. She tells me about the moment she knew she had fallen in love with soccer.

She also talks about her road to playing professional soccer which included a knee injury that nearly derailed her career and becoming a single mother.

Jessica describes the unforgettable moment she found out she was heading to France for the 2019 World Cup – the only mom on the team – and how winning has become about more than just soccer for Jessica and her teammates.
