Nebraska State Soccer Association investigating tournament

The team, Omaha Azzuri Cachorros, was supposed to participate in a tournament over the weekend, but they were unable to because they were disqualified.

After word got out, soccer fans and star athletes alike rallied behind Mili, sharing words of support and encouragement.

But we cling hard to assumptions about appearance - even children's appearance - and short hair, for a lot of folks, means male.

He said she was devastated, and he was frustrated. Her family brought several forms of identification, including her insurance card and a doctor's physical form, to prove she's a girl, but the team was still disqualified.

She said simply, "They care". She said: "Hey, Mili Hernandez!"

Wambach tweeted: "Mili, don't EVER let anyone tell you that you aren't ideal just as you are. i won championships with short hair". "They don't have a reason to kick the whole club out".

Teach coach Mario Torres told KMTV in Omaha that tournament officials did not handle a clerical mistake properly.

That complaint set off a chain of events. The tournament director said the disqualification had nothing to do with Mili's looks but the listing on the roster. Officials said it was a typo but still a rule violation.

It said in a statement Monday that the Springfield soccer club's decision to disqualify Mili Hernandez's team does not represent the association's core values of teamwork and inclusion.

Moms did the clipping as the girls stood in the field surrounded by Mili and the rest of the team.

In the end, said Tovar, Mili is just a regular girl who loves playing soccer. Those are handled by a separate tournament director and committee.

The association said in a statement Tuesday afternoon it would suspend sanctioning the Springfield Invitational until it had completed a detailed review and the tournament's organizers took steps to ensure similar errors would not happen again.

The disqualification provoked criticism on social media. "I have short hair".

Wambach also wrote about why she is so passionate about Hernandez's case. "It is 2017 stuff like this should not be happening in the United States!"

"Mili, don't EVER let anyone tell you that you aren't flawless just as you are". Hamm invited Mili to her soccer academy, and Wambach sent her a message.

Tovar said he along with Gerardo Hernandez, Mili's father, tried speaking to the president of the tournament and were shut out. As for what it meant to her, she said, "That people care".
