Episode 8,   Dec 22, 2021, 06:00 AM

Former United States Women’s National Team (USWNT) player, Tiffany Roberts Sahaydak joins Ali Riley to discuss the 1999 FIFA Women’s World Cup and the impact that the national teams victory had on the development of women’s football in America (3:00-6:55).  

With 110 caps for the national team including a debut at the age of 16, Sahaydak recalls the lack of job security following the 1999 World Cup (9:48), how it felt to train with her role models at a young age (24:51) and how current players can prepare for life after football (14:18). 

With a gold medal at the 1996 Olympics to her name and having participated in three World Cups, discussion turns to Sahaydak’s post playing career as a Head Coach and what needs to be done to get more women involved in coaching and refereeing (30:41). 

Stay tuned for the final episode of FIFPRO's Changing The Game series with Steph Catley, Sarah Gregorius and Ali Riley out 29th December.
