Girl Banned From Soccer Tourney Because ‘She Looks Like A Boy’, Gets Support From Abby Wambaugh, Mia Hamm
This weekend Mili helped lead her team to the finals of the Springfield Soccer Club girls tournament. However, before taking the field on Sunday, Mili and her team were suddenly disqualified. Springfield soccer organizers insisted Mili was a boy. Gerardo Hernandez told WOWT 6 News that his daughter "was in shock." He continued: "She was crying after they told us... They made her cry." Mili's family claims they showed her insurance card to tournament organizers in an effort to prove she's a girl. It wasn't enough.But Mili has backup.
Mia Hamm also offered support ... and a place in a USWNT-sponsored tournament.
