Whitney Engen,
defender of the US women national team and the Boston Breakers (also played in the Chicago Red Stars, Western New York Flash and in Liverpool, under all his personal card) expresses all his disappointment, "I am surprised and devastated" , for the phone call that Jill Ellis, coach of the US national team, has informed her that "you are no longer in the future plans of the national football team " .
He concludes his letter with "I'm not sure of the role football played in my future. I think my best years are ahead of me. I'm going to take a little time to spend with my family and decide what can I do off the field. Still I do not know how to thank you enough for your kindness ".
