Thorns FC's Eckerstrom, Bixby talk goalkeeping and VAR controversies in World Cup Podcast

Goalkeeping is taking center stage early in the 2019 Women's World Cup, and not always for the reasons you'd expect. While there have been a number of standout individual performances, the use of VAR to evaluate if goalkeepers are staying on their line during penalty kicks has become a point of controversy, with the global goalkeeper's union rebelling against video replay's new use.

That's the main talking point on this episode of our World Cup podcast, where two members of that union, Thorns FC goalkeepers Britt Eckerstrom and Bella Bixby, walk us through their reactions to the week's contentious calls.
