Hamm extends invitation to girl humiliated at youth tournament

U.S. Wins 2015 World Cup

WOWT-TV reported that Mili was playing with a team of 11 year olds in the Springfield Soccer Club girls tournament when organizers told the squad on Sunday that it had been disqualified. Her father Gerardo Hernandez is supportive of his daughter's passion, saying, "It's what she likes".

Mili Hernandez was supposed to be worrying about playing in the finals of a youth soccer tournament over the weekend with girls three years older.

They checked the roster and noticed that Mili, who has short dark hair, was listed as a boy on the team's regular season roster and the roster for the tournament, Bianco said. "She even was crying after they told us". The family showed them Mili's insurance card, which clearly identified her as female. "It's what she always wants to do, to play soccer", said Geraldo Hernandez. "I didn't like my hair long", Mili told WOWT.

The ruling to disqualify Mili and her Omaha Azzuri Cachorros teammates from the competition obviously left the kiddo "in shock".

After hearing Mili's story, USA soccer legends Mia Hamm and Amy Wambach showed their support on Twitter.

What does 'covfefe' mean? Social media rushes to define Trump's typo
At 12.06am on Wednesday, Trump wrote: " Despite the constant negative press covfefe ", triggering a torrent of jokes on Twitter. By making the comment that covfefe is a big secret will now cause #covfefegate to go on for hours if not days.

So, let me get this straight: They assumed she was a boy because of her hair (which is ridiculous in the first place), but then, even after they were corrected, they still wouldn't let Mili and her team play? "But they don't have a reason to kick the whole club out".

"They didn't want to listen", said her brother, Cruz Hernandez.

The organizers did say that the Hernandez family can appeal the disqualification to the Nebraska State Soccer Association.

"Just because I can't play here, there's other tournaments that I can play", she said. Her skill on the soccer field?

Moments later, Wambach said she would contact the tournament organizers herself.
