Happy Mother's Day: Moms of USWNT flown to match
Sunday May 10th, 2015

The United States women's national team players had their mothers flown out for Sunday's Mother's Day match against Ireland in San Jose, Calif.

The credit goes to Fox Sports, Abby Wambach says, as the network flew the moms out to Avaya Stadium for the match, which will kick off at 2:30 p.m. ET on Fox Sports 1. The match begins the team's three-game Send-Off Series leading up to the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup. After Sunday, the series will continue May 17 in Carson, Calif., against Mexico and then in Harrison, N.J., on May 30 against the Korea Republic.

USWNT has a 10–0–0 overall record against Ireland and a 37–1 scoring margin. The only goal for the Irish came in an Oct. 20, 2004 game, during a 5–1 U.S. victory in Chicago.
