Women's Soccer: New Head Coach Omid Namazi Leads Chicago Red Stars to 2-2 Draw VS Washington Freedom
When named Head Coach earlier this month, Namazi said of the Chicago Red Stars, "This is a talented group, but talent alone is not always going to be enough. There need to be other elements to the team -- good leadership, commitment to winning and commitment to doing everything in order to get the W's. And I think that's an area where I can bring some leadership to the team." With two goals by Red Stars' Brazilian forward Cristiane bringing their Jun 12 match with Freedom to a draw, Namazi said, "I feel that we're progressing in the right direction, but the important thing is to keep improving. We're going to keep working hard."
