A promise kept

From Jewel Ramos (Honduras)
Remarkably just three months after giving birth to her daughter, forward Sydney Leroux stepped back on the pitch for the first time during Orlando Pride’s 1-1 draw against Sky Blue FC last Sunday. The 2015 world champion said she promised herself she’d come back this season; bsrocks8 provided the inspiring proof of a promise fulfilled.

The Best in red, white and blue

Go behind the curtain as championsdudigital shared this fresh footage of the Stars and Stripes’ Italy experience.

Don Pepe’s passion

From Diana Cuellar Mexico)
From South America to North America, football can bring families closer together. SoyDianaCuellar introduced us to Don Pepe, a fervent supporter of Mexico’s Atlas. Even with the loss of his hearing and sight to Usher syndrome, he is able to follow matches from the stands thanks to his sons, who communicate with him through touch and sign language.

Look out, Serge!

From Inamuldinho Hasan (USA)
Serge Gnabry was unstoppable in Bayern Munich’s 7-2 win over Tottenham in UEFA Champions League play – so much so that his own team-mate wanted to take him down a peg! What happened next was brought to us by inamuldinho_hasan. “Tonight belonged to [Serge], which is why I took him out,” Niklas Sule said after the match. “He hit me on the head beforehand, so I had to get him back.”
