Much like my children’s school calendar, the European leagues are getting a break shortly after starting up again.

The good news is that for some of the Mexicanas Abroad, the break will prove busy as Mónica Vergara invited along Anika Rodríguez (PSV), Bri Campos (Vittsjö), and Myra Delgadillo (Braga) along with regulars like Kenti Robles (Real Madrid), Jimena López (OL Reign), Emily Alvarado (Reims), and Karina Rodríguez (Washington Spirit) for the upcoming friendly.
