US women’s football, match suspended against sexual abuse: the players gather in a circle

In the sixth minute of the match between NJ / NY Gotham FC and Washington Spirit, valid for the National Women’s Soccer League, the players stopped playing and observed a minute of silence in support of the former players of the North Carolina Courage, who six years ago accused their coach, Paul Riley, of sexual abuse. The initiative was anticipated by an official statement from the Nwls Players Association, which invited all professionals to take part in the initiative, underlining the six years that Mana Shim and Sinead Farrelly, Riley’s main accusers, had to wait before to be heard by the authorities. The request was accepted by all the teams, who took part in the initiative yesterday. As a result of the scandals, in recent weeks Paul Riley has been banned from the League and Lisa Baird, commissioner of the NWLS, has resigned.
