Women's Ballon d'Or winner Ada Hegerberg decides not to play in World Cup

Women's Ballon d'Or winner Ada Hegerberg decides not to play in World Cup Ada Hegerberg won't feature at the World Cup in France this summer. "We tried to solve it, we had meetings, but she decided not to play," Norway coach Martin Sjogren said, according to BBC Sport. The 23-year-old has not featured for the national team since Norway's dismal performance at the Women's European Championship in 2017 when the nation failed to score a goal. Hegerberg withdrew herself from selection to protest what she describes as a lack of respect for female soccer players in Norway. "As a coach, you need to focus on the players who want to be a part of the team and Ada doesn't," Sjogren added.

Zurich (Reuters) - FIFA has recommended the use of video assistant referee (VAR) technology for the 2019 Women's World Cup in France this year.

The organizing committee of world soccer's governing body met on Monday and backed the use of VAR at the tournament after it was introduced at the men's World Cup last year in Russia.

The FIFA council will make a final decision on whether the technology will be used at this year's women's event, which runs from June 7-July 7, when it meets in Miami later this month.

"I can’t see them not having (VAR), I think it would be a little bit insulting if we weren't afforded the same opportunity (as the men)," U.S. coach Jill Ellis said in July.
