With the Canadian women’s national team are in Toronto to play South Korea at BMO Field on Sunday, she talked about the team dynamic with so many experienced veterans and Olympic champion young players and the differences between international tournament soccer and club soccer. After leaving Vancouver to play at the University of Texas, Grosso joined Italian giants Juventus and won the Scudetto this season. She spoke about the growth of the womens game in Italy, the experience she’s gained playing for one of soccer’s biggest clubs, and describes just how good the coffee really is in northern Italy.
