Soccer team kicked out of tournament because player looked like a boy

Mili Hernandez is 8 years old, loves soccer, has short hair and looks like a boy, so she and her team were kicked out of a girls soccer tournament in Nebraska on Sunday.

The team was about to play in the finals of the tournament in Springfield when it got word.

Tournament officials didn’t want to look at insurance records that showed she’s a girl, which suggests that the reason the team was kicked out was because someone wanted to game the game.

Two of the country’s legendary soccer stars rushed to her defense.

Mili says she’ll find other tournaments to play in.
