Abby Wambach Defends Bullied 8-Year-Old Girl

Abby Wambach has shared a message of support for a young Nebraska girl whose youth soccer team was disqualified from a tournament after she was mistaken for a boy. According to the Associated Press, the girl's team was removed from the tournament after organizers misidentified 8-year-old Mili Hernandez as a boy. After her team was removed, her parents provided documents to prove she is a girl, but the tournament refused to reconsider.

Dear Mili Hernandez, you are amazing in every way. Thank you for teaching us how to be brave and shining a light on something so hurtful. If you don't know, she is my new hero. Her team was disqualified from a tourney cause they thought she was a boy because of a clerical error that wasn't handled properly. Let's meet soon sister.
