The ladies are the first – Ever! – female commentators in FIFA World Cup History!

Despite the attention being given to the men’s tournament, Viviana wanted to first and foremost acknowledge the heroic and hard-working women’s national team.

“We have to remember the sacrifices the women’s squad has gone through. It’s a story that has gone on for a long time including not getting financial assistance to train, pay inequality, and resources. Instead of flying to the tournament, for example, they had to take buses.”, Vila continue, “When I was a kid, if you were a girl and wanted to play with a soccer ball, your parents would take the ball from you and hand you a doll. It was inexcusable for a woman to be considered a soccer player,” she says resiliently. “Eventually, these women, who kept hearing no, who wanted to play, got together with others who shared their love for soccer and formed an unbreakable bond.”

Telemundo Deportes has stroke gold selecting the experienced Argentine as this moment will also be an opportunity to send a message to millions.

“We want to create a cultural movement…We want to let everyone know we will have the most exciting and authentic coverage to all Hispanics across all platforms..”, Rick Warren ~ President Telemundo Sports.

And Viviana in typical fiery Latin fashion agrees!
