Kicked out because 'girl looks like boy'

Wow, Omaha:

The Springfield Soccer Association said that a misprint in the team’s roster identified Hernandez as a boy in “violation of state and tournament rules” ... When Gerardo took Mili – along with ID showing she is a girl – to the tournament he claims the officials “didn’t even want to take it”. Mili was understandably upset. “Just because I look like a boy doesn’t mean I am a boy,” she said. “They don’t have a reason to kick the whole club out.”

There was some consolation for Mili after World Cup winners Mia Hamm and Abby Wambach tweeted their support. Hamm invited her to a training camp and Wambach, known for her forthright manner, saw her as a kindred spirit.
