The cover of the June edition of the Sports Illustrated magazine features Delaney Miskella, a local 8-year-old Livermore soccer player. The photo, showing youth paired with members of the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team, heralds the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup, which runs from June 7 through July 7.

Delaney plays soccer for the California Thorns and was chosen for a photo shoot with the National Team. Delaney comes from a family with an established soccer background. Her mother grew up playing in Livermore and went on to receive one of the first D1 soccer scholarships to college. She then played semi-pro for 15 years and has coached high school and youth soccer for 17 years.
