Girl, 8, looks like a boy, soccer team disqualified

"When my hair starts to grow I put it short because I've always had short hair", she told the news channel.

Apparently, Mili Hernandez's short hair left officials CONVINCED the soccer-loving youngster was a boy trying to play in the girls tournament. "It's what she likes", Gerardo Hernandez said". "She was in shock", Gerardo Hernandez said.

Mili Hernandez was disqualified from the finals of the Springfield Soccer Club girls tournament after officials insisted Mili is a boy. "Just because I look like a boy doesn't mean I am a boy", she said.

Mili's story made it all the way to U.S. soccer star Abby Wambach.

He showed up at the tournament, insurance card in hand, but "they didn't even want to take it", he said. Instead, the heartless executives say that if the team feels there was an error, they can submit a challenge to the Nebraska State Soccer Association. But on Sunday, before taking the field, she and her team were suddenly disqualified because Springfield soccer organizers believed her to be a boy.

Bianco said soccer clubs provide player names and genders for the rosters and are responsible for noticing any mistakes and fixing them. The team's coach said Mili's squad won two of the three games it played Friday and Saturday.

In addition to being a soccer player who's good enough to play up a few age groups, Mili has short hair.

Springfield Soccer Club organizers refused to be interviewed by WOWT, and referred to the news station to their lawyer.

"They didn't want to listen", brother Cruz Hernandez said. By Monday she was back to dribbling a soccer ball and obsessing about her favorite team, Guadalajara's Chivas. They don't deserve to be disqualified for not fitting some outdated, sexist notion of what makes someone "look like" a girl.
