    Please continue covering UEFA Women's CL news--I'd rather not rely solely on foreign reporting. The recent investment in European women's teams (AM, Chelsea, Barca, Madrid, Celtic, Bayern, BVB) will eventually mean higher wages for the top women playing in NWSL. Where are the Italian teams in all of this? Juve can't sit this out forever.
