Girl disqualified from soccer game because she looked like a boy

Girl disqualified from soccer game because she looked like a boy

"When my hair starts to grow, I put it short because I always had short hair, so I didn't like my hair long", she explained. "It's what she likes", Gerardo Hernandez said".

Mili Hernandez says her entire team was disqualified from their soccer club tournament because officials thought she looked "like a boy".

So sure was this league president that he not only kicked Mili out of the tournament, but he disqualified her entire team.

Mili's dad, Geraldo Hernandez, said she was crying and said she "was in shock" after her team was disqualified. "She even was crying after they told us", Gerardo said. Her parents even attempted to remedy the situation by producing Mili's insurance card.

He said Mili, who is from Omaha and will be in third grade in the fall, has played soccer for three years.




"They only did it because I look like a boy", Mili told WOWT 6 News. He said her full first name is Milagros and that Mili is a nickname she's had since she was a baby. And Mili went back to running around a soccer field every chance she got, her hair not quite blowing in the wind. She's looking forward to playing soccer again-albeit in different tournaments.

Mili, whose skill pushed her up three age groups within the club, said she keeps her hair short because she prefers it that way. Milly is a great player and that can not be because she is simply a talented female athlete it has to be because she is possibly a boy and cheating.

Springfield Soccer Club organizers would not comment, but did say Mili's family can appeal the ruling to the Nebraska State Soccer Association.

"They didn't want to listen".

Soccer legend Mia Hamm also reached out to Mili with an invitation to her camp. Not just at the mistake that made his daughter cry, he said, but at officials' unwillingness to hear him out.
