Zach Ertz Off to France to Support His Wife at the Women’s World Cup

Russ Joy - June 12, 2019

Fresh off a 13-0 drubbing of Thailand in the Women’s World Cup, the US Women’s National Team is about to add to their supporters section. Eagles tight end Zach Ertz is heading to France to support his wife Julie Ertz and her teammates ahead of their Sunday tilt with Chile at the Parc de Princes in Paris.

Ertz told the Associated Press:

“It’s awesome being married to Julie, being able to support the people we love doing what they love to do. I’ve seen all the work she does each and every day and I’ve seen all the adversity she’s faced over the past seven years we’ve been together. I’ve seen the injuries. I’ve seen her cry. I’ve seen the blood. I’ve seen the tears. Because she loves the game so much, I’m so invested in seeing her succeed. That hard work is paying off.”

Rewind just over a year and it was a reversal of roles with Julie learning of the Eagles’ triumph over the Minnesota Vikings in the aftermath of a USWNT victory:

It’s pretty awesome to see a couple of high-profile athletes supporting each other on and off the pitch/field. Sure, people took the USWNT’s 13-0 victory and subsequent goal celebrations as the biggest heel turn since Danerys Targaryen burned Kings Landing to the ground after the bells of surrender had been rung, but I’ll still support the team. It’s the American thing to do.
