I see more international signings for WPS

Well news is out that standout brazilian midfielder Formiga (Miraildes Maciel Mota) has signed with bay area franchise FC Gold Pride. This gives the team a great and experienced presence int he midfield.

Los Angeles has grabbed midfield support in the international signing of Japan’s Aya Miyama. The free-kick specialist may have to beat out new teammate Marta for that job, but she should help provide support in the middle of the field regardless.

Chicago Red Stars have picked up support in their midfield with signing Australian international Heather Garriock. She will bring a wealth of experience to the midfield of the Red Stars and hopefully link up well with her teammates. “It’s an absolute dream come true for me to continue my career in the United States, playing with and against some of the best players in the world,” said Garriock.

This article also states that Australian forward Lisa De Vanna is in negotiations with the Washington Freedom.  Do you think the international signings so far, with the addition of US National team players and quality players out of the WPS General draft are leaving no doubt where the best league in the world is? Worried as a expansion side you’ll have too slim pickings come next year?
