Working mom: Jessica McDonald balances World Cup, 7-year-old son


Jessica McDonald quickly was put in her place by Jeremiah, her 7-year-old son. “I tried to explain to him: ‘Buddy, we’re going to the World Cup.". “And he’s just like: ‘OK, can I have a toy now?’” A 31-year-old forward, McDonald made her World Cup debut against Chile on June 16, a pinnacle on a circuitous, protracted path to soccer’s highest level.
