COLUMBIA - Senior forward Taiwo Adeshigbin will train with FC Kansas City this weekend. FC Kansas City is one of the eight new teams across the U.S. that forms the National Women's Soccer League (NWSL), sponsored by U.S. Soccer.
"I'd like to thank Coach Vlatko Andonovski, Assistant Coach Huw Williams and FC Kansas City Team President Brian Budzinski for giving this opportunity to Taiwo and Mizzou Soccer," Mizzou Soccer Head Coach Bryan Blitz said. "We wish her the best in her journey to reach her dream."
The 55 women's national team players are allocated to the eight clubs, including all 18 U.S. players on the 2012 London Olympics gold medal-winning team.
